Re: Memory leak in Radar App

I have an update on this issue:

Don Murray wrote:

- when I run this using copy=false, my max heap
gets up to 89 mb and then stays there.   I added
in our ucar.unidata.util.MemoryMonitor widget to
keep track of the memory usage and commented
out it's call to run garbage collection so that
wouldn't affect the results.

When I wrote this original message, I was not seeing
the memory spikes that James sees.  My memory usage
would level off at 89 mb. However, if I
minimize the display window or have the window hidden
by the readout window, the memory spikes up quickly.

I'm not sure what to make of this.  I suspect that
Jame's variations in how many iterations it takes
to run out of memory depends on how long
the canvas is hidden during the tests. ;-)
