Bisq is using 6.2 GB of RAM on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Bisq is using 6.2 GB of RAM on my computer. I noticed this since day one back in March, but didn’t give it too much thought until now. Does anyone experience something similar? Is this normal at all?

Running a fresh instance uses 2.5 GB on my side. But other’s report similar experiences. Are you using the latest version 1.1.4? Was it this heavy before?

Yes. It happened since back when I started in March. Yes, I’m using 1.1.4. It was always heavy. Should I do backup and reinstall?

I’m not sure that would solve whatever is causing the problem, but it’s worth a try. Do a backup to somewhere safe and erase everything Bisq related from its directory before reinstalling.

On my Debian computer Bisq uses 1.1GB.
6.5GB seems quite a lot.
Maybe this could be related to using an old and/or big wallet ? many open offers or trades ?
Just guessing.
Please take care to not reveal confidential infos about your Bisq use.

I also encounter the fact that Bisq is using up to 6 GB of RAM running under Ubuntu 18.04.

However it is not really reproducible. After a restart it will usually go away…

I think there are also some GitHub Issues concerning memory consumption.

There are more than 10 trades completed, all of them were completed with the seed generated when I started using Bisq. I also have some BSQ in the wallet, but that’s it. I’ll try reinstalling and see if it helps

UPD: reinstalled, restored backup, still over 6 GB of virtual memory usage.

CPU=36% seems also quite high.
CPU=6% on my Debian.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this has something to do specifically with Ubuntu.

There were already discussions about this kind of issue on the github.

I think we can dismiss the 36% CPU because it’s a third gen core i5

Should I open an issue on GitHub?

My Ubuntu 18.04 with I7 ca. 1,3GB

Does anyone have any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

I’ve already seen one resembling issue on the github.
Best thing is to open an issue on github, but I feel this may not be easy to solve.

can you maybe create a memory snapshot with https://visualvm.github.io

process manager output does not really say much about memory usage.

I am cocerned as well. Bisq always consumes 100% of one CPU (on debian). What is it doing all the time?

1.1 GB here. Why is it so high? Thanks
