Issue: A WebUI tab will increasingly use more ram the longer it’s open (I was up to around 800MB, currently at 350MB after around 20 minutes of usage).
Suspect: Server logging not cleaning up after itself.
Browser: Chrome Version 57.0.2987.133 (64-bit) (Arch Linux), Currently testing Firefox too.
Reproduce: Open WebUI, Open one of the server profiles, (might not even have to do this) click one of the log file links, wait (depending on how much your server spits out, this may take a while to accumulate).
Workaround: Close the tab and reopen it (refreshing doesn’t work), or wait for the tab to crash (Chrome does this, not sure about FF or any other browsers) then refresh.
If MineOS doesn’t stop tailing the log file (like when the log file gets too much output, is that still a thing?) it will slowly (or quickly) use more and more RAM, the longer the tab is open, until it eventually crashes the tab (Chrome). I could just not keep it open all the time, but it’s hard for me to close tabs. I have a problem.
This only started happening recently (past few weeks), not sure if it was the fact that one of my users started using ArsMagica2 (it produces a lot of spam in
fml-server-latest.log every few minutes), or if it was caused by my updating the WebUI to the latest commit (currently
When I started typing this post, I opened two fresh instances of the WebUI, one in Chrome, the other in Firefox. Since then, Chrome reports around 350MB of Memory being used for that tab, Firefox reports anywhere from 36MB to 80MB. Firefox seems to be handeling this much better, so I’m not sure if this is an issue with Chrome or with the way the WebUI handles logging, or both. This issue really isn’t the end of the world, I just figured that I’d post here to let other people who may experience this issue know what (I think) is going on.
EDIT: It occurs to me now, that I should maybe update my usage numbers, as I wrote this around 14 hours ago, and just forgot to actually hit submit until now.
- Chrome: Crashed (Not sure how high it got)
- Firefox: 128MB
