About rAthena Forums....

Recommended Posts

Just notice that every view, reload or visit on rAthena board it increases memory usage...(on Google Chrome not yet tested on other browser)

at first it uses about 40,000K memory until such it reaches 500,000K and makes my unit to be laggy..

is anyone also experiencing it???

Note: don't know where to post just trying here to be sure

I noticed this too on Google Chrome, but was not sure if it was a Chrome issue or because IPB 3 forum skin has so much more "stuff".

I can confirm this behavior with Chrome, it looks like it has problems with memory leeks. I also tested it with Opera and Firefox and with those two it's working fine.

What I do to "fix" it is close all tabs from that domain [rathena.org]

You don't have to restart the browser completely.

a webpage leaking memory? wtf? are you able to tell if you get this only from rathena or other ipb forums too?

I don't spend enough time on any other IPB 3 forums to notice. XD

But.. I think it also happens on [build.rathena.org] after refreshing the page many times.

Set it to something like http://build.rathena.org/waterfall?reload=15&num_events=100

and come back in a few hours (2 hours = 480 page loads).

I think i have asked Jman about this too this was the response

[2012 March 13 06:50:55] <Waeyan> [Jman]-> why is the forum eating so much memory?
[2012 March 13 06:51:39] <~Jman> Er?
[2012 March 13 06:51:54] <~Jman> how do you know?
[2012 March 13 06:51:56] <~Jman> o.O
[2012 March 13 06:53:52] <Waeyan> when i idle on the forum for too long the memory it is taking to me goes up now it is around 600MB
[2012 March 13 06:54:02] <Waeyan> chrome task manager
[2012 March 13 06:54:12] <~Jman> Er, that's a browser issue, Chrome is known to do that
[2012 March 13 06:54:27] <~Jman> the longer you keep a tab open, the more memory it seems to consume
[2012 March 13 06:54:31] <Waeyan> well it only happens on the forum
[2012 March 13 06:54:36] <~Jman> I have the same issue with pages not rAthena
[2012 March 13 06:55:11] <Waeyan> i have lots of pages open , but only rA goes up like this
[2012 March 13 06:55:39] <Waeyan> ill try firefox
[2012 March 13 06:55:40] <~Jman> Well, that would be explained by the ajax on the page, and google Chrome
[2012 March 13 06:55:56] <~Jman> ajax causes the page to be refreshed, I believe, every so often
[2012 March 13 06:56:12] <~Jman> Everytime the page is refreshed, Chrome uses more memory
[2012 March 13 07:06:24] <+O> all browsers suck dick
[2012 March 13 07:06:31] <+O> IE being the worst
[2012 March 13 07:06:39] <+O> its a tie with chrome and FF
[2012 March 13 07:06:47] <+O> cause they both suck too
[2012 March 13 07:06:47] <Waeyan> lol
[2012 March 13 07:07:01] <+O> trust me, both of them crash
[2012 March 13 07:07:05] <+O> and have fucked up problems
[2012 March 13 07:07:12] <+O> I've had with both of them
[2012 March 13 07:07:19] <Waeyan> ok from now on ill be using netscape navigator
[2012 March 13 07:07:32] <+O> And I use BOTH of them everyday, always have 2chrome windows open with many tabs, same with FF
[2012 March 13 07:07:37] <+O> So i know
[2012 March 13 07:07:57] <+O> I switch back and forth for different sites
[2012 March 13 07:10:55] <@trojal-at-work> Waeyan: Probably the ajax calls are creating variables in the global scope
[2012 March 13 07:11:03] <@trojal-at-work> and leaving them there

With Firefox my ram consumption is just about the same (more or less) like any other webpage/forum; it averages around 300mb. I leave rathena.org or rathena.org/board open for hours/days/weeks =P

Have not tested with Chrome, will do that now.

Edit:

Tested on both Chrome stable and FF (latest):

-Firefox: RAM usage within normal fluctuation. Goes up when you click on a link but goes back down to where it should be after page loads (just like normal).

-Chrome: RAM usage permanently increases after clicking on any IPB3 link or reloading the page. RAM does not go down but increases by big margins.

-community.invisionpower.com looks to be having the same issue as we are with Chrome (testing it myself); although it increases at a lower rate!

I don't know if rAthena uses a module to store cache data, like eAccelerator and other apache mods. If so, this may be the problem ... Any error in MOD can give conflicts with Chrome.

It may be that this has been fixed in latest versions of Chrome ... So make sure your browser is updated.

We think it's a Chrome issue http://code.google.c...etail?id=113983

It's more noticeable here because IPB 3 pages consume more browser memory than other pages. Ex:

IPB 2 board index ~ 10 MB

IPB 3 board index ~ 40 MB

On Chrome 20 I noticed memory usage doesn't increase as fast.

I wonder if they fixed it.

/hmm Base on my experience.. IPB use quite lot of bandwidth.. About memory i dont know.. But if you try install IPB in free or cheap webhosting.. You and your friends may experience slow loading and etc.. But i think if install in dedicated VPS will much difference since some cheap webhosting they just shared your host with other host in 1 server..

/sry

But so far im not having any problem.. im using chrome.. XD rarely use Firefox..
