I am using Roon with great pleasure for more the two years now. Many thanks for that! The latest 1.8 update is a improvement for me because of the better classical search functions.
Still, I have a problem. Since I use Roon, it is constantly ‘eating’ my system memory. Over the course of days and weeks, Roon’s memory usage continues to increase: from 1 Gb in the beginning to 3 Gb and more. Eventually I have to restart Roon. This is a little annoying.
I am not the only one complaining about this. There are many posts on this forum about this subject from users with different configurations and different systems. Here is a list to mention some:
Hey Guys - Great idea. I have had memory issues on 1.7 and 1.8. Not sure where to dump this but every 5 days or so I have to reboot. Running latest 1.8 build 756 stable Core on Mac mini with two Roon Bridges 1.7 build 571 latest. Notice the 47GB of virtual memory. Again this is not a new problem.
I’ve noticed that over the last 6 hours since this morning the Roon memory requirement has increased by 0.3Gb despite having stopped the Deep Harmony extension. Looking forward to some positive news from you.
It’s difficult to avoid the conclusion that you’re ignoring and avoiding responding to messages about this problem. Are you there? Can you please give some comfort to paying customers that this issue is being addressed please?
Hi, I suspect you’re right that they might be working on it, but it wouldn’t be difficult for them to confirm that and possibly even give some update. How long did it take you to reply? I do try and give folks the benefit of the doubt, particularly when I love their product, but patience can wear thin when I’m being ignored or stonewalled
Hi @John_Warden — I can confirm that this is something we are working on. The ticket is with our development team currently and it’ll need to be tested by QA after that, so these types of issues can definitely take some time. However, this remains a priority issue for us, and we’ll be sure to let everyone know when we have an update on this.
I can also confirm this is an issue that I am currently experiencing on a fresh installed virtual machine running Ubuntu Server 20.04 (2 cores, 2 GB RAM).
The memory increases from around 700 MB to about 1700 MB in 5-7 days. A restart of the roon service helps it clear the memory again. Also I noticed that there are a lot of roon instances running on Linux at least, maybe other people can confirm?
