Quote from: Jeremy Collake on March 18, 2015, 09:50:26 PMSo what happened was that I had an epiphany to simplify SmartTrim. This method reduces menu items, makes things simpler.The only negative side effect is that the 'Trim Now' will only be available when SmartTrim has at least been enabled, though the user can select 'no periodic trim'. That may change.The 5 minute trim those who get the short lived .5 build are just seeing an aberration as I changed the design and had it check more frequently. It was then that I had this rather obvious epiphany to just tie these together and kill this option.Largely, SmartTrim will be smart based on process criteria, not timing.However, exceptions do exist, such as doing a trim before entering gaming mode. Whether more temporal criteria are added is something we'll explore in the future.

Quote from: Jeremy Collake on March 18, 2015, 10:47:24 PMOk, .9 is uploaded. Testing it myself, but should be fine. I had just left some code from the prior design in the last beta build, as I mentioned. It should do much less trimming.But, regardless, I'll now slow down on the builds, so I can speed up on the coding and code review.

Quote from: edkiefer on March 19, 2015, 09:14:58 AMsome observation of 18.104.22.168B , Not sure what option "Trim when game mode is engaged" , When I start a game that has game mode enabled I didn't see a trim trigger when it started .tried a few app that I have set to game mode and same thing .While running BF4 it did trim BF4 but in the 15min interval (I don't have BF4 set to exclude trim yet ) .
Quote from: chris635 on March 19, 2015, 09:46:49 AMEd, I think games were excluded based on Jeremy's post last night. I was playing some games on steam and they did not trim. I looked back at my logs and it doesn't trim anything while in game mode, even with "Trim when game mode is engaged". I'm not sure if he is pushing to have any process's classified as game mode to be excluded but still trim everything else. As far as trim schedule, he changed it back to 15 minutes as default. I'm on the fence, but should games really be trimmed out while playing?
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on March 19, 2015, 10:13:52 AMThanks guys.Some notes... By the final build:1. SmartTrim will (but may not necessarily now) exclude any process classified as a game, or a Steam or other auto-detected game --- assuming that option is checked2. This is regardless of whether it's actually being played or not. I'll assume that if the game is running, it's being played -- a pretty safe assumption 98% of the time.3. Settings may have changed through the betas - so just be aware.I have many work items unrelated to SmartTrim, so I'm hoping that today I verify that everything is working 100% with it and can move on from it entirely - for now.
Quote from: chris635 on March 19, 2015, 12:07:33 PMI know your super busy man, on the next release you might want to fix "triim" to "trim" under periodic timed trim, the every 15 minutes selection.
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on March 19, 2015, 06:28:20 PMI see what you are saying now, I will double check the AND.We had a brief server outage, about an hour. First in years, that I can remember. Very frustrating, but I had a backup server operational within an hour (which is when they fixed the original server, naturally).
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on March 21, 2015, 12:45:42 AMYes, simply because the RAM Load > 15% or whatever, it is entirely possible that SmartTrim finds no processes worth trimming.
Quote from: BenYeeHua on March 21, 2015, 03:13:09 PMI wonder what will happen after the version number hit v22.214.171.124, we might just has v126.96.36.199 as beta.
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on March 18, 2015, 09:03:18 PMThe way I've exposed SmartTrim in v188.8.131.52 beta is such that it defaults to a 15 minute periodic trim, else it's disabled - or some other periodic trim value is selected.No more 'let smarttrim decide' and no more 'no periodic tirm'. Either means SmartTrim is disabled. Though I have left the latter, just for the sake of having it there.
