I’m still fairly new to DTP/DTPO and I have a question about memory management. When I first open DTP it uses about 36M or so of real memory. With every entry I open, particularly web archives, this amount grows. As far as I can see, it never releases the memory it uses to load these pages. Is there a way to disable this behavior?
That’s either caused by the WebKit memory cache (using up to 8 MB of RAM) or the WebKit cache for already rendered pages.
Is there a way to turn caching off? DTPO grows from 36M when I first launch it to over 100M after a couple of hours of use!
No, the cache can’t be disabled. Another circumstance increasing memory usage is that DT Pro doesn’t load all on data on startup and therefore intense usage will increase memory usage if the database is quite large.
