P3D v3 Memory Leak

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

     I am really stumped here. I think I may have some sort of memory leak in P3D v3 and I can't seem to find what it is. I have search forums and have found other people having some issues, but no really solutions. The only solution I can find for memory not releasing is HT on, but I am running an i5 4670K so HT isn't even an option. As you can see below I run rather modest settings compared to some others who have had no memory issues with P3D v3. I attached my cfg file as well as settings.

 

This flight in question here was KIAD to KSFO. I left KIAD with around .8 GB of VAS left and as the flight went along until around 2 hours in I was only at .2 GB of VAS free. The flight is still ongoing and I am just going to see if it can make it or OOM before i reload the FSUIPC saved flight. I'll update the post then.

Any help is appreciated!

 

Thanks

 

Gary

One thing I noticed off the bat is Bufferpools and Affinity Mask...ditch'em, you don't need them.  In fact, that Affinity Mask setting is probably what's killing your VAS and probably framerates as well.  There is a recent discussion here at AVSIM about Affinity Mask=14, which appears to be an automated setting with the add-on Manager for FSDT (and Flightbeam).  I would go into that manager and disable that setting.  Try that and see if your performance increases before going on a witch hunt to disable or tweak further.

Oh wow I didn't even notice those in there! Thanks for the catch, just took them out and restarted the sim.

Don't know anything about the gobblygook computer stuff in this post, but I do know a 42d Air Base Wing bloke when I see one!  Glad that somebody else using their squardron insignia  :dance:

I like to approach issues before they become an issue. I departed with .8 GB of VAS free and less than 2 hours in had .2 GB of VAS free. This is completely opposite of everything that I have read about P3D v3.

It will be caused by one of those addons. If you had monitored each one and not rushed to throw everything on at once you could probably have worked out what was causing the absence of VAS release - which is what the problem is, not VAS consumption.

 

I guess you will have to do a reinstall and try each addon in turn, but my money is on the scenery, and specifically the FSdreamteam stuff. 

 

Of course spanning a 780 across what, three monitors probably isn't helping ? Need a 970 or 980 for that

 

Finally, as Jim advises, kill that .cfg and build a new one. There are settings in there that are either nonsense, or making no sense.

Eh its a 780ti SC and I overclocked it a little more. It's running a Titan levels. My cards will beat a 970/980 any day, and only loses to a 980ti by marginal amounts. I removed the bufferpools and affinty mask and was able to complete the flight into SFO with .7 GB of VAS free. Granted that didn't include departure from KIAD, but there was 3+ hours of flight on that. And the big thing was my VAS stayed around 2.7 GB until I came into the SFO area. The fact that my VAS wasn't climbing anymore after removing those is promising. More testing to make sure FlightBeam KIAD doesn't have a leak is needed, but I am feeling confident right now
