It's quite extraordinary behavior. Could you describe the solution that causes
that big memory consumption?

Thanks,

hello again,
my current project is asp.net based and contains 445 .aspx pages + 925
.cs files, at this moment(a few minutes after reboot) devenv.exe is at
400MB and ReSharper show 120MB in the taskbar, but most of the time
devenv is over 700MB.

the same project loaded in VS.NET 2003 w/o ReSharper - devenv uses ~80MB

any suggestions are more than welcome, as I just cant work in plain old
VS.net

thanks

In my experience this is completely normal (not desirable, but normal).
For me Task Manager usually shows 700-900 MB allocated to devenv.exe
with another 700-900 of virtual memory. I have tried various way to
reduce memory consumption but have not had any luck. I can't live
without R# so for me the best solution was to get another GB of memory.

R# usually shows 200-300 MB used (the status info at the bottom of the
VS.NET window). I am not sure why there is such a discrepancy between
Task Manager and this status display.

I have noticed that memory usage spikes when I am working in the
WinForms designer. If I am able to stay out of the designer, memory
usage shows 150-200 MB less. When I run VS without R# installed devenv
usually takes less than 100 MB.]

i believe the status bar shows only the memory used by R#, not the whole
IDE

In reality the status bar simply shows the value returned by GetTotalMemory(false)
function. This should
account for the entire size of the managed heap of the process.
