Wondering if anybody knows exactly how to check NT7 for memory leaks. I am running a chart with two free futures.io (formerly BMT) indicators. One of them, when applied, seems to instigate a run on memory usage. From task manager the memory usage is continually running higher. This afternoon I removed the indicators, restarted, and found that the memory seemed like it was idling at a fairly constant level.
I then tried to remove the indicator from NT7 to update reinstall it but I was not able to remove it, due to a message that said it was required by another indicator, an indicator that I do not have installed. I could not find the .cs file that it said was causing the problem so I opted to uninstall/reinstall NT7.
I am back up and running now, and since putting up the workspace with updated versions of the two indicators the memory usage has doubled from 200k to 420k, and counting. It's not ticking up that fast, but it's definitely ticking higher. This afternoon it had reached 9 gigs and was spinning like the US debt clock.
Is it normal for the memory usage to slowly increase over time like it is doing now or is one of the indicators leaking memory. The indicator that I suspect might be causing the leak is the Universal Keltner Channel. But I'm not sure. Can anybody comment on how to diagnose NT7/indicators for memory leaks?
I am using two... right now i'm using the vwap indicator, it is quite stable, not leaking. When I put on the Universal Keltner Channel with adxvma setting, the leak begins... I have updated to the latest version so must be something in the latest update.....
I tested out the Universal Keltner with the SMA setting. There was no leak. Switched back to adx, and we are leaking again. I also applied the adxvma on its own, not from within the Keltner, and didn't really notice a leak. With the adxvma setting inside the Keltner however, we are leaking. I made a note on the indicator on the downloads section so hopefully the contributor will see it and be so kind as to check it out... I dare not approach him directly for fear of death.....
The following 2 users say Thank You to syxforex for this post:
The leak is coming from the anaADXVMA, not the Keltner Channel with the adxvma. I am running the channels now and there is no leak. If I add anaADXVMA, the centre line, the leak begins, only when applied to eman's momentum bars, it does not leak when applied to native ninja bar types.
@syxforex: I think that we can exclude a leak of the Universal Keltner and the anaADXVMA. Both @ThatManFromTexas and myself have done extensive tests and did not find any leak. For more information see link below
I am at a loss then. I now have my the charts up and running the adxvma keltner channels, channels only, no centre line, no adxvma on in addition to the UKC. There is no memory leak. If I add the anaadxvma with bar paint and plot the memory begins to leak. What else could I look at in my system? I did a fresh install yesterday, only three indicators installed, anavwap, anaadx, and anakeltner Univeral.
