Error description

  • Memory consumed by 'doors.exe' is not released after completion
    of importing RIF or ReqIF packages.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    -----------------------
    1.? Login to DOORS and then start Windows Task Manager. Make a
    note of the amount of memory used by 'doors.exe'
    
    2.? Try importing either a RIF or ReqIF package. Monitor the
    memory consumed by 'doors.exe'. Depending on the package being
    imported, 'doors.exe' would consume appropriate amount of
    memory.
    
    3.? Even after the RIF or ReqIF package has been imported
    successfully, we would observe that 'doors.exe' still continues
    to use the same amount of memory that was used while importing
    the package and it doesn't release the memory.
    
    As an example: Memory used by 'doors.exe'
    - Before import: 91MB
    - After successful completion of first import of a RIF package :
    328MB
    - After successful completion of second import of a RIF package:
    558MB
