I have a ruby script that reads data from a database, processes the data
texts) and saves the results back to the database. I works great and at
The problem is that I ran the script on friday and left it until monday
saw some memory related errors in the console (Insufficient Memory
something…). I ran the script again and fired up the windows task
and then I saw that for every 10~15 records in the DB the script
the memory goes up 1MB and there are no signs of it going down.
I started the script this morning and the PC was at 400MB ram usage, now
night and the PC is at 1.05GB ram usage.
Is this a memory leak?? is it caused by my scritpt? or is a Ruby thing??
I use Ruby 1.8.2 and ActiveRecord 1.13.1 in a WinXP machine.
any comments on how to find out where the memory is going are welcome.
