Rhino 7 Memory Usage on MacOS 12.1

Hello,

Ever since I updated to MacOS Monterey 12.1, Rhino 7 seems to have a memory leak issue. I know there was a general system-wide memory leak issue before 12.1 , but that seems to be fixed.

Now it’s just Rhino that has the issue on my computer. The models I have open when this has been happening are not very complicated and pretty much only involve planar surfaces.

Here is a screenshot of activity monitor - this pretty much happens whenever I have Rhino open for more than a few hours. Once I close and re-open the app it goes back to a normal amount of memory usage at first but once again steadily climbs up until the memory pressure is really high.

Is this a Rhino issue or a Mac issue? Either way I hope it can be fixed soon.

Hi, did you change your system cursor color? I also had this issue when I had a custom cursor setting on MacOS Monterey, but it was fixed when I change the cursor back to default.

Hi!

I have the same issue on Mac OS 12.01.

I don’t have any custom cursor settings. I noticed that was a potential cause of the memory leaks before 12.1 but it was not the cause on my computer…

Today I did some tests inRhino and got the 97Gb RAM usage :grimacing:
