why is my itunes taking up 430 and up mbs of ram?
i have a mac pro 2.0 1 gig of ram
Well you answered it yourself - it's a ram hog.
Hmm... does that look something like this?
no, mine must have been broke it wasn't wearing the glasses
haha, but seriously why did it jump from using a low amount to such a high amount?
You know, there was a thread on this with the EXACT same title about two weeks ago... here.
It seems like CoverFlow is the culprit... iTunes probably puts all the album art in the RAM for quick browsing.
Is that Real Memory or Virtual Memory? Mine only uses about 70MB of Real Memory, which I think is fair enough. I'm just literally playing music with no visualisers or anything fancy. I forget how much iTunes 6.0 used...
even on my decent spec MBP (2.0ghz, 2gig ram) iTunes 7 can be a slug. esp when firing up some of my music videos, and going from windowed to full screen and back.. what a dog!
I have .49 GB RAM left for the OS.
Crazy, how long has it been open?
What is going on...Holy...##$%%^
I got better performance with iTunes 7 than 6
When I have iTunes 7.0.1 minimized it uses 123 MB real memory, 500 MB virtual. When I scroll through the album covers it spikes to using 360 MB of real memory, but it goes back down right away.
I can not get it to go above 200mb of real RAM. But it normally is around 50-100.
mines only 75-150 usually i dont know how but it is
