r43192 consumes more Ram than r42822

Forum thread started by ddavid123 on Sun, 2011-11-06 15:41

Yesterday I upgraded Haiku to r43192 from r42822 via anyboot image! I burn the anyboot image to CD then install it to usb stick with the older version of Haiku still installed on the stick. I have been doing this since I installed Haiku Alpa 3 on the stick!

Yesterday I noticed that after the upgrade to r43192, Haiku used much more RAM than other revisions! Usually, it will consume 120 megs after starting and then goes slowly down to 80 megs when idle with virtual memory enabled. Now it consumes 160-180 megs and stays there when idle with virtual memory enabled! Same amount of virtual memory allotted in both revisions on the same computer with the same hardware specs.! The only thing that has changed is the upgrade to r43192!

I am not at the same computer, so I can not submit any syslogs or anything! Is this a known issue? Could it be due to having Haiku previously installed on the stick and did not permit a clean install? Thanks!

A memory calculation bug was fixed in r43168. See http://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/7714

So Haiku isn't using MORE memory, it was just LYING about how much it used before! Right?

Correct.

Re: r43192 consumes more Ram than r42822

I would like to ask if the developers will try to reduce the hardware requirements for Haiku? Or is it a necessary minimum?
