R#6 Memory consumption

Hi all. I've just installed R#6 & am loving it. The js stuff is amazing!

However, I find that VS' memory consumption just keeps climbing... Has anyone else reported a memory leak? Any suggestions? I know this isn't much to go on - if there's any more info I can provide, just let me know. I'm running on Win7 x64 & VS2010 SP1, for starters.

Thanks!

Hello,

How big is the memory usage? How does it change over time? Also, could you
please measure memory usage through Task Manager and measure the managed
memory usage (turn on 'Show managed memory usage in status bar' option under
ReSharper | Options | Environment | General). How big is your solution (how
many classes and projects are there)? Do you have any other third-party extensions
installed? Thank you!

Hi, Andrey. Thanks for the reply. It's taken me a while to get back to this, because I haven't been using VS as much.

But just now, I've been doing some Javascript coding & some C# refactoring and now VS is using just over a GB of memory according to Task Manager. R# is reporting that it's using around 550MB. It seems like it just gradually keeps climbing. I wasn't keeping a close eye on it, but my hunch is that it's the C# refactoring that's doing it.

My solution has 9 projects, including 6 C# dlls, 1 C# WPF exe and 2 C# websites. There are around 1,600 .cs files, plus .aspx, .js files, etc.

I do have a few extensions installed, including:
- JScript Brace Matching (MS)
- JScript Word Highlighting (MS)
- JScript Editor Extensions (MS)
- JScript Intellisense para Extension (MS)
- JScript Outlining Extension (MS)
- Mindscape Web Workbench (Mindscape)
- NuGet (MS)
- Productivity Power Tools (MS)
- SpecFlow (Techtalk)
- EF Power Tools CTP1 (MS)

I hope that helps. One final thing is that when I initially open that solution, VS is using ~400MB & R# is using ~160MB.

Thanks!

Just a quick followup. I just had it where VS was using 1.7GB of RAM, and R# was reporting using 1.2GB. I wasn't doing any C# work, just JavaScript. Don't know if that narrows it down for you at all?

Thanks!
