Seems like a tool to keep the cache empty. May be better to leave it to the OS to manage memory...

here with 8gb ram on Win7x64, running shits together 

  • VS2019
  • NodeJS w/ Gulp
  • ASP.NET Debugger
  • SQLServer2018
  • browser


I see true difference. Before, the windows after a time of use (ex 1h) got bottlenecks when user request to show it (aka click on taskbar any window).. Is unbelievable.

Setting this ^awesome app, clean every 10mins... all working as expected, w/o any user interaction.

My work machine has normally running MS Teams (2GB right there..), Outlook (250MB), Chrome with 40+ tabs (6+GB), Visual Studio, 1-2 VMware Guests and IDA. Would I expect it to magically work with 8GB of RAM? F*ck no!

Sure, you can find a tool that hacks around and maybe reduces the symptoms. But it doesn't fix the problem.

The actual problem is that your machine is severely under-powered for that sort of a workload. Another 8GB of RAM would be a proper way to solve those issues. And it costs ~40EUR - which is less than 1-2 hours of your time you probably spent googling for such "tool".

Just out of curiosity, @kao what are you doing with 40+ chrome browser tabs 🙂, you said it is normal🙄

@akkaldama: I use browser tabs as bookmarks for commonly used staff. Browser tab is one click away, bookmark is "..."->"Bookmarks->Find the folder and click->Scroll down and click. Way too slow. :)

If you want details, most of it is Kibana, Apache Impala queries and company internal system dashboards/interfaces.

 

And I didn't say it's "normal", I said that it's unreasonable to expect that to work without a proper amount of RAM.

 

 

EDIT: oh I see.. It should be "has usually/commonly running". Sorry for my Engrish.

The problem lately is Windows deliberately consumes too much memory and uses a less than adequate strategy for power users.  Seems they are helping the RAM makers for sure as if you add 8GB you will still see 60% consumption on boot just as before the upgrade.  We should be able to leave it to the OS but they dont give you any settings or control over this sadly.

We say this with every iteration of Windows. Recalling XP being bloated... 🤔

Well it's true though right?  Every OS upgrade adds more background services, more memory consumption.

They always seek to maximally utilize the resources.  You basically need a multi core with high RAM to do anything interesting nowadays.  By forcing hardware upgrades, they sell more licenses so there is justification for this business strategy.

My father told me in the 1970s these same things went on.  So it's much older.  They never rewrote the code to be more efficient because they wanted the system always busy so they could justify its use and further upgrades.  Some things never change :)

Does not leave us consumers with much options.  As you correctly point out, tools like this are never as reliable or well understood as the OS choosing to be more efficient or flexible.

 

To prove it further, Microsoft does not do much to stop Win10 cracks.  But put a minimal Win10 with the bloat stripped out and they will DMCA it at light speed.  Priorities!  Instead of designing to run on certain hardware configurations as claimed, they in reality design it not to run on certain hardware specs.
