Quote from: Jeremy Collake on December 23, 2014, 11:03:24 AMBitsum unveils our first early beta with our new SmartTrim functionality. Classic RAM 'optimizers' work, or rather don't work, by forcing *everything* out of RAM. Many do this by simply allocating as much RAM as they can get, until finally they receive no more. Yes, they are that badly written. Anyway, after they page out ALL virtual memory, the pages actively in use then get immediately paged back into RAM. You suffer a performance hit and screw up the Windows Virtual Memory Manager's efforts to fully leverage your RAM, the fastest storage you have available on your PC. Our new technology is surgical, precise. It hits only the pigs. We've still got lots more development to finish, but an early beta always helps to put fire under our butts. Support this and other research by buying a Lasso Pro license. https://bitsum.com/processlasso/
Quote from: DeadHead on December 23, 2014, 12:43:41 PMNice!Now if you could work something out to force more things into Windows file cache on demand, that would be most interesting (like, forcing a game folder into the ram cache, for example).
Quote from: chris635 on December 23, 2014, 01:35:56 PMI am checking this out on my lap top. How well would this work on a system with pagefile disabled. On my main system, I have 16gb of ram and turn off pagefile.
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on December 24, 2014, 12:17:03 AMVersion 7.5.5 beta, building now - so uploading in about an hour - will substantially improve this new SmartTrim algorithm's implementation. It also adds aforementioned log events. I think it will turn out quite well. Finally, a RAM optimization algorithm that doesn't pile-drive the whole virtual memory subsystem.Please let me know of any bugs or feedback.
Quote from: edkiefer on December 24, 2014, 09:14:26 AMany trick to getting log event to show ?I have it set to 1hr setting but not seeing log event , what log events do i need enabled ?Maybe because there nothing to trim, i am only at 30% usage of 8gig's
Quote from: XhenEd on December 24, 2014, 04:52:57 AMYay! I think this will improve my Intel Atom, 2Gig netbook. (I hope so...)
Quote from: DeadHead on December 24, 2014, 09:44:21 AMSeems to work just fine for me, but I've only tested it manually. For example, Firefox working set goes from 524 MB down to 4 MB. After a while though, FF is consuming about the same amount of memory again, so not really sure what to make of it.
QuotePS my FF went from 1.5gig to 475mb .yes, I got a lot of tabs open .
Quote from: BenYeeHua on December 26, 2014, 04:04:27 PMSame, but only when I like to open a lot of Image or News. Too bad Firefox don't speed up the process for supporting 64-bit after they know about Chrome has released 64-bit stable, which might be useful for heavy users.And, I guess we can start counting the TRIM count at the Insights now? ----Off-TopicAlso, when you hover the mouse over the Tray icon, why it is showing as "Lasso 7.6", but not "Process Lasso 7.6", for much better information box, or?
Quote from: edkiefer on December 26, 2014, 05:12:19 PMI actually run Palemoon, which is optimized version, it does have 64bit, but i use the 32bit version .Not sure why it been so high, i think normally i am around 1gig, could of been I watched a lot you-tube vids or something .
Quote from: BenYeeHua on December 27, 2014, 09:24:01 AMAs the game quickly reclaim back the memory that it is using(16.67ms if the game is ticking as 60HZ), so it should not affect too much for the game, while also paged the memory leak into Page File. (Except they are using their own cache solution and loaded into the game process, but not SuperFetch which cached as Standby and provide better memory priority.)
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on December 27, 2014, 04:33:08 PMIt is designed to ignore the process currently in the foreground.There are other exceptions and criteria as well.Future builds (v8) will allow specific exclusions and more control. This is just the beginning.
Quote from: bertie97 on December 28, 2014, 04:19:35 PM Wow, version 8 is on the horizon, how long has it been since version 1.0?
Quote from: edkiefer on December 28, 2014, 05:18:43 PMVersion 1.20 released 12-20-2003I think I started using version 4.0
Quote from: bertie97 on December 29, 2014, 05:48:03 AMI don't think I could run a multi core PC without it these days. The lumpy ride without PL just drives me crazy. That applies on both my AMD & my Intel stuff.Good to know of (& experience) the constant improvements after more than a decade.
Quote from: XhenEd on December 29, 2014, 08:08:21 AMI just want to refer you to the thread since this thread about PL's SmartTrim is linked: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/other software-experimentation.371695/ (http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/othersoftware-experimentation.371695/)The thread is about a memory cleaning program, but it went into a broad discussion of the effectiveness of all memory cleaning programs.
