Re: [WIN8] Searchindexer?
I don't remember how much it was using but a heck of a lot more than 4MB!
Task Manager was showing 25% RAM usage with only Fx 10 ESR open (about 70 tabs). Nothing else open. That's scary and crazy ....Fx was the biggest user which would be expected at about 560MB (probably less when I upgrade it to the current ESR version). But it was the other stuff especially searchindex that was eating up RAM that bothered me. What if I had two virtual machines running and each had been assigned 2GB RAM (4GB total and that is very modest RAM for virtual machines...I would assign more if I could), I had Open Office in use, had Opera running (it is my mail client) with 30 or so tabs, as well as Fx, and a couple of other applications running. If just Windows and Fx use 25% RAM with ONLY 70 tabs...geez...I add at least 4GB for two virtual machines that is 50% of my RAM in use and then I add a few other programs...well...I would need more than 16GB RAM to be comfortable.
After I got rid of Intel crap and a lot of other stuff that shouldn't have been running including searchindex I reclaimed 13% of the RAM. Now Task Manager shows 12% RAM usage with Fx (about 70 tabs) and nothing else open. That is reasonable. What I was seeing was not.
