Handle growing SystemUIServer memory usage
Authored by: rwmitchell on Sep 20, '10 11:06:47AM

When iStat Menus 3 first came out, I tried it and then subsequently noticed my machine became very boggy within a few days. A reboot (I know, barbaric) would fix the problem temporarily, but it would return. I reverted back to iStat Menus 2 and the problem went away.

I've been watching the updates to see if they have fixed any performance issues that would be related but haven't seen anything.

Your problem and fix sounds like the same thing, but my trial version of 3 has long since expired.

Handle growing SystemUIServer memory usage
Authored by: usunoro on Sep 20, '10 03:17:09PM

With the latest version, I've had no problems with memory usage. I'm using the clock and calendar widget, load widget, temperature and network usage widgets. Currently using 48.5MB real memory, and 78MB virtual memory. I've not noticed it slowing anything else down either.
