Do you think that I have a heavy weight build process? previous: An optimization story next: A bug story Comments 10/15/2008 05:08 PM by joe I'm more interested in what kind of magical version of Visual Studio you have that you have going on that only consumes that much memory.... 10/15/2008 05:23 PM by Steve Sheldon Good grief, what are you doing? Sometimes I find we do things big just because we can, rather than because we need to. 10/15/2008 05:56 PM by Tuna Toksoz Joe, when there is something consuming too much memory, the other programs will forced to use less. The virtual memory comes into play. I think that's the reason. 10/15/2008 07:33 PM by Diego Jancic The same happened to me a while ago, that was because I was using creating (by mistake) the NH SessionFactory in each test fixture. When I fixed that it fall below 100mb... I mean, are you sure there's not an error in your script/code? ;-) 10/16/2008 06:29 AM by Darius Damalakas unit tests consume up to 1.5 gig of memory, at peaks, but we know it's because of a memory bug. 10/16/2008 01:45 PM by Dennis I'm with Joe here... However did you ever get VS down to 150MB? 10/20/2008 04:02 PM by Scott White My Visual Studio.Net is consuming 636MB of ram right now. Visual Studio is not the most light weight IDE and I think Resharper adds to that footprint, albeit Resharpers footprint is well worth it. 10/21/2008 08:01 PM by Mike Brown Hmmm...my VS Memory hovers around 150 MB consistently and I have a solution with 35 projects in it. 10/26/2008 07:50 AM by Jeff Brown Looks like unit tests to me... How many individual unit test assemblies do you have? Comments have been closed on this topic.
