Hi Farr users,
I'm using Farr now. Overall, I love this software except for its strange memory use. In my system, I've observed into its mem usage several times, and the result amazed me a lot. At first, the usage is around 4MB, then the first time I hit BREAK after launch, it increases to a little bit more than 8MB, and every time it does a more expensive job, the usage increases correspondingly. Now, the strange thing comes. Its usage never come down. Even when it's idle, the usage stays at the topmost level it ever reaches. It gives me a impression that Farr never realize memory Sad
I'm curious about what about yours? do you have the same problem?

Why?

A lot of people are going to favor faster "wakeup" rather than saving a puny little amount of memory.

If he's low on memory, not hitting the swap file is always nice smiley

That's just my personal opinion smiley And I have never noticed there is any extra "wakeup" latency after I changed the option.

Anyway, I still think Farr acts abnormal in terms of the phenomenon I mentioned.
