Doesn’t help, mouser.

Firefox, being a browser, takes at least that much time to fully load up all tabs that are open at the time it is started. As you open more tabs, or start a Flash video in a tab, etc., the memory will naturally increase. Mem usage will continue to fluctuate as you open and close tabs. If there isn't a way to have the memory average be dynamic - or allow it to be set manually, then Piglet is going to be of little or no use with regard to the memory used by browsers.

what ideally would you like Process Piglet to do about it?  you can exclude it from monitoring -- but short of that what would you want it to do?

Manually set a higher limit? If nothing at all, then I don’t think it will be working correctly with most tabbed browsers.

Just my opinion... Don’t have a cow, man!

Never mind. Not a problem for me anymore.

Thank you.

Jim, if i came across as combative, I didn't mean to!  I probably didn't express myself well.  I was just trying to ask for suggestions for options I could add to make it more useful.

Hiii mouser.

I have few FireFoxes on a greasmonkey script.
Sometimes theres a huge memory leak up to 3GB of ram.
Seems like Your progs can be usefull, if he could automaticaly terminate the firefox after he reach limit.
in my case just terminate, not restart.

Is it easy to implement for You?
Im not sure if i should bother You, because thats kinda simple mechanizm, i should find some autoit somewhere i guess

Best Wishes
Ruskiem

Edited:

Yeeeaaas, definitely need that auto terminate on reach x MB option.
I consider a donatiooon! ;>
Okay i will do it! just implement that please? ;D

I had completely forgotten about, or had not noticed that - NANY 2014 Release: Process Piglet.
Looks quite handy anyway.
By the way, that's an interesting introductory video you made for it @mouser - thanks.
I'd be keen to see it merged with Process Tamer like you suggest though.

I'd love if it tracked private memory usage rather than total - so I could tell when a chrome tab is taking up a ton of memory for example :)

On the Memory Options tab you can choose what statistic to track.

It lets me track working memory, or virtual memory, but not private memory.

Thanks!
This really matters for chrome - I want it as a way to alert me when some tab suddenly has a memory leak and uses much more ran than expected. 

Right now, there is one chrome process that has a gig of working memory, but its private memory is half that, which is really the stat that matters.
