Run one of the downloadable memory managers such as FreeRAM XP Pro. My ram decreases steadily over the course of several minutes. When it hits 24MB, FreeRAM pushes it back up to the limit, usually around 180MB (of 384MB total). Then it starts to drop again. This happens with one or multiple BitTornados running. It's not a fix, but it keeps the computer from ultimately bogging down.

i've read through the forums and i didn't see anything about this but after closing a download the exe is still found running in the task manager. it's at a low mem usage but it's a hassle to have to open up taskman and manually end the process. not sure if it's a bug or just one of those things that happens when using it.

running Bittornado T-0.3.9 on a Windows XP Home edition SP1. also, the memory usage is low 16-18 K depending on connections but the mem leak is still there. within 2 hours i drop about 100 megs.

Any ideas why?

What's going on seems to be a problem between Python and Windows, where allocated spaces aren't being released as deftly as they ought to be. This isn't really something I can fix; I've tried sidestepping the problem, and gotten a bit of success, but not as much as I'd prefer.

Python is the programming language that BT is written in.

Can Shadow slowdown the speed at which the auto resume checks the hash? Sort of the way you can select how fast windows allocates disk space for the file? Yes, I know there different! Just trying to explain myself!

My PC runs fine with only 768 MB of memory, had FreeRamXP in and set it to free memory if it went under 64 MB, it never had to free up any extra memory! But over time I noticed my memory start to slowly disapeer while running BitTornado 0.3.9a!

0.3.9a (have not tried "b") is the only one I have ever had problems with! Which sucks because it's hard to defend it, when it doesn't work!

Don't worry about a new GUI ... cosmetics can wait...let's just get Tornado up and running again!

Just to say that is running really well for me but I spent 1024 Mo of RAM, so if you are impatient, do the same! Good Luck

copy of post to abc forum:

Hi Tim,

I have attached (email) some more pics showing ram usage in abc.

abc_ram20.bmp is after abc run all night SEEDING three torrents only (i.e., no d/l)

abc_ram21.bmp is several minutes after place all three on pause and then CLOSE (exit) abc (note NO CHANGE)

abc_ram22.bmp is after KILL process "TREE" in task mgr EACH on four instance of abc found running.

three instance were use about 3m ram, 1 instance was use about 55m ram


>>>> <<<<
>>>> BUT <<<<

NOTE in abc_ram22.bmp FOUR HUGE DROP in ram usage chart as each process in turn is killed off.

AND note the "commit charge" DROP from about 650m to about 200m.

IS THIS NORMAL ??? For program to suck up 450m of (swapfile) ram?? just for UPLOADS !!!!

If program in FACT NEEDS to have lots of ram/swapfile to track lots of file pieces being uploaded efficiently that is fine of course.

BUT, we end users of this wonderful BT client of yours would like to know this so we dont tear our hair out perplexing
over why this happens.


Thanks for your good works Tim.

I recently added more RAM for a total of 1.5 GB and am not seeing any leakage anymore.

Ram usage is still. Leave two torrents running, come back 6 hours later and GG to slow computer.

THe only memory problem I'm having is that Bittornado doesn't take itself out of memory when I finish a torrent or cancel it. Once in a while it will, but most of the time I have to manually remove them from the processes. This started happening a few updates ago.

P3 800Mhz
384 RAM

i have that problem too where my memory available drops sharply, but i just use the memory optimization tool in tweak-xp pro which brings my available memory back up

p4 1.5 ghz
512 meg ram

each instance of Bittornado tends to take up about 40 (i assume megabytes) of commit charge, and sometimes bittornado leaves me with only 50 or 60mb free ram, and upon closing the single instance if it, frees nearly 300mb of ram
