Error description

  • Headline:
    Memory leak observed in Rhapsody 8.0
    
    
    Abstract:
    Attempts to use Rhapsody continuously for some hours results in
    Performance Issue
    
    
    Error_description:
    Rhapsody slows down considerably after using for a few hours on
    Windows XP. The reason is analysed to the fact that it keeps
    occupying more and more memory after subsequent
    actions....Finally it reaches a stage when even simple actions
    such as performing an 'Add to Model' or moving the cursor takes
    2 minutes.
    
    Steps to Reproduce:
    Try1:
    I opened C++ model ?HomeAlarmWithPorts?. Memory used by Rhapsody
    = 17452 Kb.
    I open then OMD named: ?home alarm overview?. Memory used by
    Rhapsody = 27172 Kb.
    I close this OMD. Memory used by Rhapsody = 27160 Kb.
    I open again the same OMD (home alarm overview). Memory used by
    Rhapsody = 27204 Kb.
    I close again this OMD. Memory used by Rhapsody = 27164 Kb.
    I open again OMD named : home alarm overview. Memory used by
    Rhapsody = 27392 Kb.
    I close again this OMD. Memory used by Rhapsody = 27380 Kb.
    
    Try2:
    Tried to reproduce with a simple sample model and the results
    are more bad. Memory used shows as high as 47,000Kb while
    Rhapsody is launched..Opening a model shoots to 99,300 Kb.
    Closing the model brings it down to only 99,100Kb. Next time we
    open a model, it increases from 99,100 to 1,03,000 and so on...
    
    The cycle keeps increasing.
    
    This is potentially a big problem if huge models are opened.
    
    
    
    Workaround:
    High risk for Rhapsody to crash.
    Decreases work efficiency.
