I use SU 2016 Pro and have been having increasingly frequent ‘out of application memory’ freezes on iMac retina 5K. It’s not just SU that freezes - most open applications stop responding to anything other than ‘force quit’.
I have just opened a new SU document, and as I watch, the memory usage in Activity Monitor climbs by the GB over a few minutes - starting at 3.6GB, and now (doing nothing) 20GB and still rising. Less than a minute later, it had reached 33GB, and is now still rising at 53GB.
Is this normal? If so, why?
I have 24GB total RAM.
I have a range of extensions and plugins loaded.
How do I track down what might be causing this? SU plugin/extension seems the most likely culprit - when I run out of application memory, it’s always when I have SU open and have been working in it for tens of minutes or more.
Would it help to list the plugins and extensions? If so, I can do that later today or tomorrow, but don’t have time just now.
