Hi everyone, I am newbie and this is the first time to ask something here.
I faced heavy trouble related to RAM usage.
My application use RAM over 2GB ~ 2.3GB. (Because my program use too much subVI (about 600) So some poor computer can't execute this program. I look for lots of solutions and tested something but I can't understand.
The upper side is the method called by reference and I heard If I use this method, subVI don't take up space on RAM when they weren't called by main.
The below side is the method I used my program and I listen If users execute the application and SUB VI occupy memory space on RAM even though they weren't called by main.
To compared RAM usage, I utilize LabView's tool but It confused me because results are the same. They occupy only when they were called by main.vi. So memory usage is same... I was confused. Can Anybody help me?
-- summary --
Can I reduce ram usage about my program? For example this program need 2GB and then I can reduce 2GB --> 1GB?
I guess you may know already how to use calling a VI by reference. But, check this tutorial explaining how to use.
I quoted some sentence form there,
" Note that when we finish the call, we close the VI reference. "
Did you close the reference?
Hi chisbae, I am too late to your comments.
Thanks for teaching me.
Yeah, I solved this problem to replace Call VI(Basic) with Call by references.
It really effects and this reduces ram usage noticeably. (2GB --> 250 MB)
I am looking forward to see you again at another topice : D
