Clusters is not freeing up RAM?

,

Hi

It looks like memory is not freed from Grasshopper cluster.
If I generate some points in a grasshopper definition and run it 100 times the RAM used by Rhino is 1.3gb
if I put the same component in a cluster the RAM being reserved by Rhino is 26.7gb

I’m looping using the grasshopper player like this:

from Rhino import RhinoApp

for i in range(100):
    RhinoApp.RunScript("-GrasshopperPlayer /Users/johanpedersen/Desktop/test.gh",False)

not in cluster


in cluster

I am assuming you are running the python script inside Rhino right? Would you mind dropping the grasshopper file as well so I can test?

Hi @eirannejad

Yes the loop run in Rhino.
This is the file.
file_to_run.gh (7.9 KB)

import Rhino
# This file is run from script editor in Rhino
for i in range(50):
    Rhino.RhinoApp.RunScript("-GrasshopperPlayer /Users/johanpedersen/Desktop/file_to_run.gh", False)

@Johan_Lund_Pedersen Is this still an issue or is related to this?

Hi @eirannejad

I still think this is an issue. In the code in the previous post, I’m not using a headless doc.
I tried the code below but it doesn’t work. I am unsure if I’m doing it wrong or if the grasshopper player is not working with a headless doc?

Regardless I understand the grasshopper player to be a tool that is meant to be used while modelling in Rhino, to do some complex geometry manipulation. If RAM is not freed after this operation I think there is an issue.

import Rhino

for i in range(5):
    doc = Rhino.RhinoDoc.CreateHeadless(None)
    opened = doc is not None
    if opened:
        doc_id = doc.RuntimeSerialNumber
        Rhino.RhinoApp.RunScript(doc_id, "-GrasshopperPlayer /Users/johanpedersen/Desktop/RhinoForum/clusters/file_to_run.gh", False)
        doc.Dispose()

Hi @eirannejad

Were you able to reproduce this?

To be a bit more precise on the issue. I tried this.
The two gh files hold the same SquareGrid component but one of them is inside of a cluster.

When I run the file where the component is not in a cluster the memory use seems relatively stable. When I run the one where the compoent is inside of a cluster the memory used grows steadily. And by quite a lot.
