Memory Usage
Authored by: bobf on Apr 27, '02 12:41:48PM

i basically agree.....

from top

Finder 0.0% 0:48.13 2 83 419 18.0M 12.9M 18.6M- 74.7M

for me.. quiting the finder would release 18M or so... and i have PBG3/400 w/384M and need the speed i get from buffering to RAM (slow drive).....

still i believe that the system was written to optimize the amount of memory available. basically the more the better.... i just don't know the
limits (top and bottom)... i do know that when i had 192M the system visibly didn't perform as well as it does now...

16136 Finder 0.0% 1:06.98 4 91 313 15.9M 13.2M 24.5M 78.2M when i posted this i was going by the memory usage graph from system manager i also had about twice as meny windows open in the finder. i also descovered snax in the period of time since i submitted the artical, it does add the desktop picture, but it does the same thing as the finder in that it hogs RAM (though not quite as much) my last issue of a finder free existance, is that snax, and dragthing refuse to eject disks without the finder running. i supose i could just use the command line and unmount but i want my gui hooks to work :D (BTW, i'm starting to use Entourge less for the same reason as the finder :D)
