Amount of memory usage - old and new flash player version

Post by Crazy_John » Sat Dec 03, 2011 6:20 pm

I was with flash player 10.0.45.2 , but yesterday installed the latest version 11.2.202.95 Beta 2.
The latest version 11.2.202.95 Beta 2 uses allot of memory , just with 4 videos (loaded at 480p) it was using 903 MB's.

So,
flash player 11.2.202.95 Beta 2 , 1 google page + 4 videos (loaded at 480p) = memory used 903 MB's :shock:
flash player 10.0.45.2 ........... , 1 google page + 4 videos (loaded at 480p) = memory used 546 MB's
^^^^ very big difference


11.2.202.95 Beta 2
Pros:
•Less usage of cpu in full screen mode
Cons:
•A little bit more usage of cpu in normal screen (large player)
•Bigger use of memory
•after close the 4 video pages , the amount of memory is 837 MB's. :shock: .. :lol: (...but 1 google page should be just 362 MB's )
•I need close and open again the browser alot more times, so that the memory usage goes down.

10.0.45.2
The Pros and cons are the inverse of the 11.2.202.95 Beta 2 version.
except this :
•after close the 4 video pages , the amount of memory is 453 MB's. (...and just 1 google page is also 362 MB's )


Something need be fixed in the new flash player versions and Firefox tho.

All this tests were done with Avant 2012 Ultimate build 8 firefox rendering + youtube videos.

I tried now flash player 11,0,1,152 and is much better than the version 11.2.202.95 Beta 2.
Uses less cpu and less memory .

Avant Ultimate build 8 Firefox rendering + flash player 11,0,1,152 :
1 google page + 4 youtube videos = 619 MB's >>> 454 MB's after close the 4 videos , (1 google page should be 362 MB's )

Avant Ultimate build 8 Firefox rendering + flash player 11.2.202.95 Beta 2 :
1 google page + 4 youtube videos = 903 MB's >>> 837 MB's after close the 4 videos , (1 google page should be 362 MB's )

Avant Ultimate build 8 Firefox rendering + flash player 10.0.45.2 :
1 google page + 4 youtube videos = 546 MB's >>> 453 MB's after close the 4 videos , (1 google page should be 362 MB's )

:clap:
Have you compared the memory usage of the process plugin-container.exe? Sometimes it consumes a lot of memory too.

Yes , but i deleted the pictures , this is the same test but new and with the same videos.

flash player 11,0,1,152
Firefox.exe 144MB's , plugin-container.exe 136MB's , Avant.exe 33MB's , Explorer.exe 19MB's , Total 599 MB's
flash player 11.2.202.95 Beta 2
Firefox.exe 136MB's , plugin-container.exe 399MB's , Avant.exe 5MB's ,,, Explorer.exe 5 MB's ,, Total 897 MB's

For some reason , looks like there was a cleanup when i used the Beta 2 version , look at the Avant.exe MB's and the Explorer.exe , and that cleanup happened also to all the other exe's of the task manager , except to plugin-container.exe .

First i did the test with flash player 11,0,1,152 and then with flash player 11.2.202.95 Beta 2.

Just an FYI guys, it's nothing to do with Flash. Have it disabled here and firefox.exe is using 968,000+ peak and 745,000+ working set, with avant.exe using 70,630+ peak and 59,690+ working set.

We went through our codes again. We couldn't find any modification could result-in memory leaks in Firefox memory leaks, plus, we improved memory usage on all engines.

Could it be you feel it use a lot of memory, but in fact, if you use Firefox alone it would consume more memory?

According to our tests, Firefox/Chrome always consume more memory.

Thats true , i also noticed that Chrome uses even more memory than Firefox.
Looks like , the more performance is a browser has = the more memory it uses , it like that ?

I did a test with 26 different pages , AB FF uses more memory than FF , but AB FF has a better performance , the one that uses less memory is FF3.6.25 but is slower.

FF 3.6.25 ........... + 26pages = ..559 MB's >>> 399 MB's \Browserscope:75
FF 9.0.1............. + 26pages = ..660 MB's >>> 438 MB's \Browserscope:77
AB FF 9.0.1 ........ + 26pages = ..896 MB's >>> 472 MB's \Browserscope:80
GC 16.0.912.15 ....+ 26pages = 1430 MB's >>> 532 MB's \Browserscope:88
AB GC 17.0.963.12 + 26pages = 1514 MB's >>> 456 MB's
OP 11.50 ........... + 26pages = ..763 MB's >>> 570 MB's \Browserscope:66(just 66 but runs very well and fast , humm)
AB IE7 .............. + 26pages = 1055 MB's >>> 350 MB's (6 sites didnt open)

The sites used are attached , in case someone want try them , all sites are about google search "car" .

I use Avant 2012 Firefox rendering 80 or 90% of the time , i like it and will continue using it , but i wouldn't mind of have a good performance as it is now but with a lower memory use ,
but maybe thats the price we have to pay to have better performance :D

Interesting...

How did you do the tests? Do you have a tool can give you the browserscore?

In our tests, AB FF use similar amount of FF.

The first number of mb's is the number that showup at the bottom of the task manager (the total of mb's that is being used in the pc) .
The second number of mb's is the same as the first but after close all pages , except the google search page.
The browserscope score is from http://www.browserscope.org/ , to do one test click in "How Does Your Browser Compare" button and "Run All Tests and Share Your Results" ,then wait till all tests finish.
In our tests, AB FF use similar amount of FF.
Here is different , 234 of difference.
I was using the same plugins in AB FF and FF , Adblock plus ON and Flashblock OFF
