Rich Editor 100%CPU and >1GB memory usage
A member at my forum just reported that while writing a post, he had to look up some info meanwhile, that took some time - he then experienced:
CPU usage maxed 100%
Memory usage of the browser exceeded 1GB
It then hung and he had to force close the browser.
He have experienced it several times.
A memory leak was mentioned fixed here
As I recall Rich Editor uses the browser much more.
Are there improvements related to this issue coming with the next release?
In other words should I wait out the next release before trying to figure out reproduction steps?
I dropped a 1071 words 6788 character text chunk in editor and left it for 1.5 hours while doing other stuff, 10 tabs open
Browser memory usage exceeded 1gb(not surprised)
CPU usage : 5-10%
Issue not replicated.
The member replied that firefox is being used.
Had him test with chrome - no issue.
Related to firefox
Unfortunately in my forum the rich editor has been a hassle in terms of performance, and especially on mobile devices, many users have complained about the performance and many cannot edit their comments because they are reading infinitely.
@Kaspar We've made quite a lot of performance improvements and bug fixes in the last 2 months to Rich Editor, and I don't 100% remember what made it into 3.1 and what didn't. We should have a 3.2 coming this week with a load of additional fixes. That release will be equivalent to the version we are running on this forum (open.vanillaforums.com).
If you can reproduce it on this site, it's definitely still an issue, and opening an issue w/ repro steps would be appreciated.
I wrote a longer post and when the text becomes longer and also code formatting is involved, performance goes down. I will create an issue with a link to the comment
I had the same problem with Vanilla 3.1 (when Rich Editor is displayed), but here with Vanilla 3.2 the CPU charge is much better.
Vanilla 3.2? is that an unreleased version @P3ter ?
That is here on the OSS forums
Vanilla 3.2 is out now:
