Memory consumption of firefox grows during large iterations

Post by fimo420 » Mon Aug 26, 2013 8:47 am

Hi,

Anyone noticed any similiar problems where the memory consumption of firefox keeps growing during an large iterations of ranorex test?
This maybe have nothing to do with ranorex, but i'm not entirely sure.
I have a test with 700-800 iterations.
At the beginning of the test, the memory is around 100 MB, but as the iterations goes so does the memory, after around 150 iterations the consumption has gone up to 500MB, after 200-250, it goes to 1GB.

The reason i'm asking here is cause the same test was running fine before ranorex 4.1.0. I havent tried to rollback ranorex version and try the test again.
I'm using the latest firefox version, and the test/webbpage has been same all the time.

If anyone has any suggestion for me to try out please let me know, would appreciate it.

Hello,

Which version of Firefox are you using? Is it a BETA version?
If a downgrade will solve the issue, would it be possible to send us your solution?
Thank you!

Regards,
Bernhard

Hi,

After some investigation/testing by downgrade both firefox and ranorex version we noticed that it was same issue even there. So i think that the problem lies on our page/site. Our developers are looking into it.
The problem was that i got very confused since it worked fine 1 month before and we havent changed anything noticable.
