I kept disabling sevrices and doing restarts until I found the Superfetch services casuing the issue. It is disabled and Mezzmo is running. I am now seeing 7% memory usage (~3gigs).

    Thanks,

    Sorry to bump an old thread. But I too was having random high memory usage with MezzmoServer. Turning off Superfetch Service and rebooting fixed it. Have not seen it return.. So far..

    My suspicion is that when Mezzmo goes out and scans files it triggers Superfetch to load the files thinking that you may come back and want to access them. The function of Super Fetch is to prefetch files in advance to speed up your system. However, it isn't designed or doesn't appear smart enough to handle a situation where many files are scanned in a short period of time and certianly not files the size of video rips. This is my theory.

    Thanks for the feedback, Dion & jbinkley60. We will suggest other users to try turning off the Superfetch service if they are experience high CPU usage on MezzmoMediaServer.exe.

    Well the temp fix worked for awhile. But the problem came back. With Superfetch off. I never remember having these problems with older copies of Mezzmo. Hopefully 3.0 fixes this. I tried to make logs but its to random. Sometimes It wont happen for days and the logs get huge.

    We have identified a memory leak in Mezzmo each time the Mezzmo database is opened, so possibly this will be the cause of the memory issue you have reported.

    We don't have a patch for the current release (Mezzmo v2.7.1.0) - only for Mezzmo 3.0 Beta. Email us at support [at] conceiva [dot] com and you can try the next Mezzmo v3.0 Beta (that has this memory fix).

    Default Memory Leak continues ? same issue as previous .. new 'flavor' -- errr .. help

    Hello,

    I am running Mezzmo 3.1.1.0 (newly updated) on a Windows Server 2008 R2 platform -- running on a 32GB i7-2600K 14TB machine. While i get no error messages i've traced that there still appears to be memory leak. Using Rammap (www.sysinternals.com) i've found that Mezzmo caches entire files, into the active portion of paged pool portion of memory, that are viewed through (in this case) my WD Live portal. When the movie is started the memory builds up and even once the movie is turned off or finished the entire file still occupies the page pool portion. I've verified that R2 does not enable superfetch so the above solution would not work. Even turning off the media server does not release the memory after a long wait period. As i said there appears to be no 'errors' generated except that as movies are viewed ever more memory is consumed until the machine has to be rebooted.

    Any ideas? Thanks.
