NT7.4 - RAM hog

Hi,
Anyone on NT7 ver 4 see a big change in RAM use? I monitor RAM usage on a regular basis to ensure my trading platform has sufficient RAM. What I have noticed since upgrading to ver 4, RAM usage for NT has gone up overall. Before, I had total RAM usage at 40-45% (around 600k) now its around 750-800k. FYI, I exactly same template with same components as always. The most visible 'effect' I noticed since upgrade is the mouse cursor stalls momentarily & consistently.

I have Win 7, with what I believe sufficient RAM (6Gb). Would like to hear your experiences and views, and ofc ways to ensure the platform does not fold.

Point taken but the last version before 4 was also a beta but the RAM usage was 'normal'. You are right betas are not optimized for performance, just to iron out the glitches. My guess inconsistent RAM usage is one such bug.

I was doing some 'serious' research on the NT forum for any information that may shade some light into this issue, or that ver 4 has had a crank up in 'resources' needed for it to operate.

I'm glad you posted. I was beginning to think something was wrong with my trackball.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

I have checked with my support team and we do not have any similar reports of increased RAM usage in 7.0.1000.4. I also checked with development and they did not feel that there were any changes made that would impact RAM. One of my tech leads will continue monitoring over the next few days to see if something comes up.

My computer has been slow too when running NT7 v4 and I've bluescreened twice, though that could be related to installation of Win 7 sp1, updates to Firefox, etc.

Ray (?),
Thanks for the feedback & continued support in the forums. The cursor/crosshair seems to play catch up at those moments. At one stage today, I was in a trade and was trying to move a target but did not happen as I 'lost' sight of the cursor as it was still catching up and not where I had anticipated it to be. I had also jotted it in my notes that it happened Mon & Tuesday as well of this week. BTW, trade played out fine.

Note this does not happen everyday but only realized it since ver 4. FYI, my mouse and keyboard both hardwired. In the meantime, should any particular actions lead to this effect in the coming days will inform you to help to resolve it asap.

I'm seeing the same behavior with the mouse cursor on NT version 4, stalls and takes a second or two to catch up.
