Roon crash macOS Catalina using absurd amount of memory

Description Of Issue
My Roon client on macOS Catalina 10.15.2 just crashed after it was using 15,4 GB!! of memory.
Roon version: 1.7 (build 511).

How can a remote use so much memory when all the hard stuff is done by the NUC?

what hardware is this on?

I do wish people wouldn’t just wipe out the requested info thinking its not used…makes one want to ignore the need for help.

Hi @Marc_Pool,

Is the behavior the same if you reinstall the Roon Client app on your MacOS? I would also set the old one aside (Note: These instructions should be performed on the MacOS Client, not the Core):

  • Exit out of Roon
  • Navigate to your Roon’s Database Location
  • Find the folder that says “Roon”
  • Rename the “Roon” folder to “Roon_old”
  • Reinstall the Roon App to generate a new Roon App
