RE: [Solved]opera 58or60 runaway RAM question
Okay thank you very cool.
Found it under the O >>> Developer >>> Task Manger
I can see two tasks that change memory but nothing like what W7 Task Manger (W7TM) reports. Oddly the one task that clearly ticks RAM merrily away adds ~600K/2 seconds but when it reaches ~300,000 it drops back to ~100,000 and starts over. So I do not see anything eating 7GB of RAM.
I tried "end process" on that one task and it killed the task. It left the window and tab open but with an "out of memory" message and instruction to reload page. W7TM still reports many opera images chewing up ram. Reloading the page brings it back at ~50,000 and ticks away as before.
The only other thing showing memory changes is "Plug-in: Shockwave Flash". It does tick memory away but very slowly ~30K /30 seconds. So I killed the plug in and W7TM keeps on ticking away.
BTW "GPU process" reports ~600,000K, I don't see that as onerous...
Regarding a "clean profile" I only found "clean" in https://help.opera.com/en/latest/crashes-and-issues/ under
"if opera crashes". But this seems a bit of a drastic measure.
Won't this lose all my nicely organized windows and tabs? I will defer to this as a last resort.
I'm going to kill opera from W7TM and then check O-TM to see if anything looks different. Will report back tomorrow as I have other pressing things to do.
