Virtual memory usage too high for 64bit versions

Copper Contributor

Why 64bit Edge uses that much virtual memory? It's really inconvenient to keep a huge swap only for edge to be able to run without exhausting all virtual memory reserves. 64bit Chrome does not do this, 32bit edge does not do this.



ps msedge|select -exp ws|measure -sum


ps msedge|select -exp pm|measure -sum


Difference between physical and virtual memory allocation is not huge, as it should be.


ps msedge|select -exp ws|measure -sum


ps msedge|select -exp pm|measure -sum


1.6 times move virtual memory allocated vs physical. I'm running out of disk space for swap on my ssd.


Please take a look at this. Don't really want to run a 32 bit version. (please dont advise me to turn on automatic swap size management, its in accordance to my resources and preferences. i have no trouble with other applications.)

I was wrong in my previous comment, 64bit Chrome is even worse in this regard. Guess it's just the way the current Blink browsers are. Seems I'll have to toss my old pc to the dumpster now.
