Massive memory leak Safari
Since the installation of OSX v10.11.5 my Safari has developed a massive leak, making it unusable. I can look in the activity monitor the RAM is typed, then passing slot, making me have to force quit Safari, whenever it is open.
Everyone knows this?
Please, back up all data before proceeding.
Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select this option:
A right click or Ctrl-click on the line and select
Services ▹ Open
the contextual menu.* should open a folder named "Safari". Quit Safari runs. One or more files in the open file must have a name starting in 'history '. Move these files and only those which, on the desktop, leaving the window open. Restart the application and test. If there is no change, leave again and put the files that you moved back where they were, crushing those who could be created in their place. If not, remove the files that you moved. The browser history will be empty. If possible, restore deleted files from a previous backup problem.
* If you do not see the item context menu copy the selected text in the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination. In the Finder, select

I upgraded my laptop Dell XPS M1530 Window 7 and met a memory leak that makes my OS unusable within a few hours despite the 4 GB of RAM. I "lose" almost 1 MB of RAM every two seconds. After doing some research on Google, I discovered that the source of this huge leak is the bcmwltry.exe that is associated with the Dell Wireless WLAN Card network controller.
I use version 220.127.116.11 of this executable that came with this laptop for several months, running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 x.
To illustrate the leak, open Windows Task Manager.
Click the process tab
Check the box "Show processes from all users" below.
Under the view menu, click Select columns, and then select the options of memory and Page faults.
Click OK to see the new columns, and then click Page defaults to sort processes by page faults.
For all my programs, the number of page faults is close to zero and or static, except bcmwltry.exe which has some 10 000 + faults per SECOND! There is certainly a huge memory allocation problem which is the cause of out of control. Currently there are over 14 million vulnerabilities having only generated this .exe about 15 minutes ago. Wowsers.
OEM02MON.exe associated with the on-line Dell! Webcam Control Board also seems to have a similar problem.
Want an immediate resolution. Restarting does not help, and that these problems occur in the absence of all other running applications.
Thanks in advance,
The Dell Wireless WLAN Tray Service is useless bloatware and must be disabled. More information:
I have observed the Organizer 14 huge memory leaks during the processing of faces. My scripts:
1. the Organizer 13 database with 35 k photos and faces named ~ 45. After the upgrade to v14, organizer began treating faces anew (preservation face name assignments v13). Now, for each photo ~ 6-8 k he consumed ~ 6GB of memory which was not returned to the system, where message memory and OS closing the Organizer. I have confirmed, that it was process organizer who was consumed by memory. I just finished finally all batch processing, and leaks memory have been persistent between the the computer reboots/restarts and restarts organizer - always at the same pace.
2. After finishing above, I'm done with 12 batteries face k (right - 12 thousand - I have many faces). I started treatment, deciding faces unconfirmed for named faces and piles of face. After an hour or two of work, I'm done with the memory low Message for the Organizer again. What happened only once so far, but I guess because it was my first batch of work after the re-scan.
Have you noticed something like that? I have screenshots of the Task Manager for the first scenario, and I think that I can easily do some for the second.
I would like to report somewhere as well?
TIA & looks

Is there a way to limit the use of the memory of Safari?
This morning I found my system is not responding because a process of Safari had used all available memory and disk space (for the swap). The screen is locked, mouse movements began to record after a minute and the keyboard was unresponsive as well. I waited for several minutes without success.
I have connected remotely via ssh on the ipad and noted that a process of Safari used about 40 gigabytes of memory; which is about all the 8 GB internal memory and the about 35 GB of free space on the disk, I normally. In the end, I had to hard reboot the machine as same sudo shutdown - r now does not stop him...
To the point, it was a crazy amount of memory used and realistic anything over 2 GB would be a sign of a problem on a page already. Can I somehow limit the process of Safari to, say, 2 GB of memory?
PS: I tried to kill the process of Safari with the kill, with and without the sudo command, but the process remained. Is there another method to kill the command line?
All the web, even on Windows browsers I find leak memory like the proverbial sieve. Most of windows or tabs that you have open and the longer you run more memory is used and "leaked".
I'm not aware of a way to set a limit for a specific individual programme in terms of memory usage.
To kill the Safari via a Terminal session by using the kill command, you must first find its PID (process ID), it would be running the ps command, to help out you, I've included a grep command to filter the unique process you are looking for.
ch - x | grep "Safari.app".
In fact lists two results, one the actual process of Safari, the other the command above itself that naturally contains Safari.app in command. You should then be able to
sudo kill 1234-9
by replacing the correct number of PID.
However, there is another solution might be easier, who wants not to use kill command but rather use the command killall related as follows.
sudo killall - c Safari.
Did the upgrade for 2015 of CC.
I got my iMac freezes several times with the warning of 'Out of Memory' and the body is the culprit using massive amounts. Currently I'm looking at him, sitting idle with a project relatively small (23 min series episode, 827KB project file) and the memory usage is increased from 2GB about to 35 GB (25,19 GB compressed memory).
I did the upgrade on my mac backup. I have just wrapped real concerts and have time to test the new version during some downtime. Then... I have about 3 weeks to figure things before customers receive in return. I'm a big fan of the integration of Lumetri. It is the largest most for my workflow and I want to use it with customer projects based, but the system must be running smooth. And the question of memory is the opposite of the smooth.
I optimized my settings memory for use only 26 GB Agency (which I guess it does if you go through the memory compressed using sound). "Scratch disks" is set to 'same as project... '. "which lie off the coast of the main HD.
I tried the trick to disable auto save function (which is the worst thing to... use autosave will save real madness). Turn it off did nothing to relieve the memory leak, so it's back as it should.
iMac (retina, 5K, end of 2014)
4 GHz Intel Core i7
32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4096 MB
Ventilation full memory usage because it is currently:
I've updated my blackmagic drivers.
I see that Adobe QT32 server constantly sitting as "Not responding" and there is always at least 2 instances of run (which confuses me).
I don't know if more info is needed.
Thanks for the suggestions... However as an update on my situation. I updated my OS as bsbeamer pointed out. After a good 10 hours of use it yesterday, keep it open all night... I stayed in the range of 3 to 9 GB of memory used. So things seem to have settled down.
I did not change the allocation of memory, just the OS update.
See you soon
I upgraded to Sierra, since as soon as Itunes is launched, the com.apple.medialibraryservice is originally a large memory leak, it keeps in ram more until she takes all (16 GB) and significantly slows down the computer.
I tried to reset the nvram and smc memory, doesn't change anything.
Does anyone have an idea on what is causing this leak and is there a solution?
Yes, I noticed this also. After that I opened iTunes, it's just a matter of time before all the memory gets used up and all departure is wobbly. In particular, bluetooth really gets bug after a certain time, and as soon as I quit iTunes, that's fine.
There seems to be a MAJOR problem (blocking/memory leak) in "subject: House", also known as start up Firefox, 26.0 Firefox Page, Windows!
-Windows 7 x 64 machine with 12 GB of RAM and high performance CPU (core i7-920)
-Comments Machine virtual WinXP SP3 (in Oracle VirtualBox) running on the same computer
-Intel Atom D525 netbook with 4 GB of RAM, running Win7 x 64
None of these machines are connected through Sync or something like that. The Firefox instance on the virtual machine is a fresh install / clean.
-100% of cpu usage for 10 seconds, (util in XP) memory usage goes up to 1.7 GB
-If "subject: House" is actually the Firefox Start Page, it blocks the computer at startup of Firefox for 10 seconds
-If "subject: House" isn't the Firefox Start Page, startup is fine - BUT if I press the "home" on the toolbar button it loads "on: House" which causes the same question once again
Sounds that there is a problem with one of the code snippets that are responsible. I've seen several reports on this issue.
You can set the browser.aboutHomeSnippets.updateUrl pref an empty string on the subject: the page of config to disable loading (new) checked to see if that helps.
You can open the topic: config page through the address bar
You must remove the ' storage\moz-security-about + origin "folder in the folder of Firefox to delete already profile stored clips.
You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:
- Help > troubleshooting information > profile directory: see file (Linux: open the directory;) Mac: View in the Finder)
On firefox memory leaks cause blue screens?
If you encounter blue screen crashes, this majority refers often to an incompatibility with a device driver, especially the graphics drivers. Go to Firefox Safe Mode and disable the use of Firefox hardware acceleration of graphics.
Assuming that Firefox is closed:
Hold down the SHIFT key when you start Firefox. You should get a small dialog box. Click on 'Start mode safe' (not reset).
(If Firefox is running, use Help > restart with disabled modules to call the dialog box.)
In Firefox, open the Options of the Advanced tab dialog box:
the button Firefox orange (or the Tools menu) > Options > advanced
In the mini ' General' tab, uncheck the box for "use hardware acceleration when available.
This will take effect after you exit Firefox and start it up again (in normal mode).
Hello fellow Firefox users!
For most of us, Firefox suffers from a memory leak crazy, this can cause slowdown and perhaps even crashes. This happens mainly because when you close the tabs, the RAM, they took is always taxing your computer. Among other things cause this annoying leakage.
Recently, I switched to Firefox and has this leak. I would not put upward with him, so I put solutions. Here's what I came with.
Some addons I've handpicked, which when combined, are extremely effective.
Firefox slow acting? Try these great modules!
Get all these together and make a leak free and faster Firefox!

I restored windows to State factory but still present memory leak.
Memory leaks are a common error in programming.
leak memory occurs when a computer program consumes memory, but is unable to release it in the operating system.
In your case, it would be necessary to know what application or process that runs in the background do
This can be very long process you would need to install a system of fees will need to check the memory leak after each installation of driver or another application
Hey everybody. I'm having a problem with my MacBook Pro (retina, mid-2012), where he is recovering in market (usually after gel). In this case only (so far) while using Adobe Illustrator CC 2015 (to date). I also use a Wacom tablet (intuos 4, with latest drivers), drawing, which can also be the culprit.
This happened with Yosemite, so I had upgraded to El Capitan - that does not solve the problem.
I apologize if the problem is with myself! I get that this problem is probably the fault of Wacom, Adobe or myself - I just want to see what you think Mac-heads.
Thanks a lot, a lot in advance for any advice - I appreciate any help I can get.

Two problems have been caused with my HP Split 2 x since I bought it 2 months ago:
(1) the touchpad works sometimes for a few seconds, while the touchscreen still work OK.
(2) the computer becomes slow after a while of use (which varies from a few minutes to a few hours usually). The Task Manager shows 98%-99% of memory, most of which use (3.6 GB / 4 GB) are not paged memory.
I suspect the two issues are related to a faulty Synaptics driver, according to:
I did the same test as the second link with the same result: Open "Task Manager" (Ctrl-Shift-Esc), on the 'Performance' tab, select 'memory '. Note the value for "Non paged memory. If I move the touchpad, it increases to about 1 MB every 5 seconds. If I stop moving, the value remains constant.
I use the preinstalled Synaptics driver, version 18.104.22.168 (Sep 06, 2013) for 64-bit 8.1 window.
Everyone has the same problem, or use it without these issues?
I would like to know if a restoration system or factory reset may fix.
Microsoft has just released an update for Synaptics Driver, not thanks to HP which has not found a way to provide the possible Synaptics driver as an OEM update.
Update Windows Update to Sypatics HD TouchPad two days ago, but I would not be allowed to install as it kept then mainly in giving the 800F0100 error Code. After some research on the Internet I could find that an installation manual after the WU has downloaded the driver would be possible.
So I went to the Device Manager > mice and other pointing devices > TouchPad Synaptics HID > properties > driver > Update Driver > Browse my computer for driver software and shown the finger/windows/C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution/Download and everything worked like a charm = D
I have no more memory leak and now after SEVEN MONTHS I finally can use gestures that it was supposed to.
But I still annoyed gel problems which in my case is a dysfunction between the screen and the dock.
Just that you wanted the guys at Microsoft to know is the solution, not the HP that would have had if they have signed and put the driver since November last at our disposal. Blame it on you, HP.
I wonder if anyone has had problems with memory leaks/Lakes when you use UDP and data queues?
The program has a section of code where the queues are loaded with the data read from different UDP ports. The queues are then read by a loop (which is triggered by a source of synchronization of 1 kHz) and some of the data is displayed on the Panel before the main VI. When the program runs it loses memory about 100 Kbps leading to a failure in about 4-5 hours, when the physical RAM is at its maximum.
I think that I traced the question (using the DETT it shows several memory allocation operations) to the Subvi I join which fills the queues. Can anyone help to emphasize something that could lead to leaks of memory/Lakes?
I suspect that the problem is that you are not emptying queues quickly enough. And is not in the code you have posted. There's also a few subVIs, classes, and controls.
Usually call loops should only be used on real-time operating systems. They offer no advantage over the standard while loop and have an additional charge when using a desktop OS. Also placing indicators within the quick loops can create problems. The operating system does not update the screen dozens of times per second, so wrote indicators 1000 times per second LV forces or the operating system, or both to manipulate data.
Having multiple synchronization methods in a loop can lead to problems. UDP timeout is probably based on the clock count of ticks. If you have the timeout of read of the UPD defined with a value greater than zero, the UDP bed may take longer than the timed loop interval. The timeout of read UDP allows a wait in a standard while loop.
I tried to find a slow memory leak in a large application Labview (2012f3). Using perfmon, probes and breakpoints, I could trace the source of the leak of a series VI communication employing a number of nodes VISA. I have attached a slightly simplified version of the VI leaking (serialCommand.vi), as well as a VISA vi initialization and a VI of container to test.
Did anyone see any problems with the serialCommand VI that could possibly cause memory leak?
After reading all posts of the forum that I could find on memory leaks and VISA error, I was still unable to stop the leak. SomeofthethingsI'vetriedsofar:
-J' read VISA Close can cause leaks memory, so I disabled inside the loop (even if he was closing an event, not the port)
-J' wrote extra carriage at the beginning of the VI returns, before rinsing the pads
-J' was initially using VISA 5.2; After the upgrade to VISA 5.3, the leak occurred still
-J' replaced VISA nodes with constant value placeholders, and the leak repaired (not a solution, but the confirmation that it is the location of the leak)
It may also be worth noting that I don't remember when this leak memory in the previous development when I was watching for leaks, but a few days ago Labview executable generates started fails with the error 1, and the only way to get Labview to successfully build again should fix labview from Add/Remove Programs (Win 7 Ultimate) , so it could be related to a change of version in one of the packages that has been reinstalled.
Is there a reason that you use VISA events? It seems that you expect just a character. Why not to use playback VISA wait for a byte and use the timeout if the byte is not?
Seems to be leaking memory associated with ToolTips. Every time I put your mouse on a panel using tool tips I see case the dynamic memory usage constantly increases. If I comment out the call to the functions of the tool tip (i.e. SetCtrlToolTipAttribute), memory leak disappears.
There is no patch for 8.0.0, if it is tell you.
But from the Toolbox of the programming interface is open-source, you can easily fix it yourself:
The 8.0.0 3365 online version of C:\Program NIUninstaller Instruments\CVI80\toolslib\toolbox\toolbox.c, you need to add the function call following ListDispose:
If (RectContainsPoint (bounds, point))
PointConvertCoordinates (Panel, child, & point, FALSE);
Return PointToPanel (child, point);
After you make the change, you will have to recompile the file (Options > create a file object) to regenerate the object file and restart CVI.
