File_column and memory usage


#1

Hi, I thought it appropriate moving this topic to a new thread…

has anybody using file_column had any problems with memory usage? I’ve
been experiencing progressively bigger dispatchers, til hitting
textdrive limits, not sure if it’s file_column itself or something
wrong I’m doing after a model using file_column saves. Been trying to
troubleshoot it at the textdrive forum:

http://forum.textdrive.com/viewtopic.php?id=7269

it was pointed out that RMagick might have something to do with it

http://rubyforge.org/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1374&forum_id=1618

and I was referred to a proposed solution by manually starting GC

http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/Gotcha (search for “RMagick”)

which I haven’t implemented successfully, though trying to add
GC.start to a few different places.

thanks
Oliver
