Why is BitSharesX so memory intensive?
« on: October 31, 2014, 04:19:44 AM »

I run Bitcoin, Litecoin, Namecoin, & BitSharesX clients in a VM with 3072MB RAM, & when I run these clients minus the BitSharesX client running, the box uses approximately 1950MB of RAM. When I start the BitSharesX client, it spikes up to using all 3000MB, plus all my 2048MB of swap.

I'm just curious as to what the BitSharesX client is doing that requires so much memory. And will it ever use less in future versions?

AFAIK .. it is holding a part of the blockchain in memory .. also some index databases ..
optimization of code will be done once feature complete (if ever) :)

Keep in mind that the satoshi client has
- no internal block explorer
- is 5+ years in development!
- does not have TITAN transactions
- does not have assets
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

After first reindex if you close and reopen it then it uses less ram.

Good to know, I'll try it. Thanks.
