fm runtime eats too much memory and is slow!~

Recommended Posts

it eats between 30 M ~ 40 M of RAM

I certainly don't know much about how much memory an application should use, but MS Internet Explorer 6 on my computer, open to the FM Forums home page, uses over 19 MB. For what a runtime database can do in comparison, it seems like 40 MB is not out of line.

and is not very robust.

What do you mean? What are you trying to do with a runtime that is failing?

this is a major flaw for programming design... frown.gif

Is there a question we can help you with?

Just inform your customers they need at least 128 MB RAM for the run-time; 64 MB is not enough. Anyway, RAM is relatively cheap.

It is caching your database. If the RAM is available, why not use it? Modern OSes are good at swapping memory, so apps and OSes no longer need to be thrifty - they can take more RAM to improve performance.

This is definitely not a flaw - it is good memory management.
