Memory leak issue

Solved!

Hi all,

After a long period of development, I'm testing the robustess of my process in loop.

I get a memory increasing of around 100MB during 15 hours.

It's quite a lot and I need to fix it for production usage.

 

I'm using TS2019 with a custom OI developed in LV2019 (I don' t have the source code of this OI)

I'm using a lot of .NET code modules so to investigate, I run OI under Visual Studio debugger to profile memory usage.

I don't see any CLR memory leak.

 

But when I close OI, I get a TS memory leak warning like that :

 

"References to PropertyObjects were not released properly.
Total number of objects: 163367
Number of top-level objects: 647"

 

I think a lot of TS object has not been released during my loop test.

But I don't know why and I don't know how to get the root cause.

 

please, can someone help me and give me some way to investigate on this issue.

Thanks in advance for your help

Hello maxmont

 

How does the memory behave when you execute the sequence with the TestStand Sequence Editor?
I would test this to make sure the problem is not coming from the OI.

Hello Chris,

 

Thanks for your response.

I get the same warning message (memory leak) after I run sequence in SeqEdit and when I close SeqEdit.

Hi Maxime

 

I would use the TestStand Sequence Editor to test individual code modules one after another. That way you can find out who is responsible for the memory leak.

Hi,

 

I ve found the root cause of this memory leak TS message. I stored execution object into a TS Queue in order to be used by a thirdparty application.

So, at the end of execution, TS was not able to release it.

For moment, I remove this object storing. and the message doesn't appear anymore when I close SeqEdit or OI.

 

In parallel, the burnin test under OI have an anormal memory consomption (memory leak).

I ve prouve with a simple sequence file that the issue is due to OI itself.

Now, I will work with OI developer to troubleshoot this issue....

 

Thanks
