C8 still loosing memory every night after local backup

After my 6 am backup


It might be informative to disable local backup for a day or two.
Did anything special occur at the April 18th backup? It looks like after the April 18th backup at the backup time the free memory has a downward trend suggesting it levels off at 200,000 the might jump back up to > 400k. Can you tell if this cycle repeats?

Just referencing the last 3 days you can see the regular drop
.ignore the earlier ones. Hub spontaneously rebooted so i restored a backup just in case anything was corrupted. It does NOT jump back up
It IS loosing memory every night at 6 am backup

If its not causing a problem then dont worry about it. I have been down to around 90Mb and hub was still going fine.

It does cause a problem after mine gets to 120 or so things get slow and stop working. And i need to reboot it. So max up time is about a week. If they can find the leak and fix it that could be better... thus why i am bringing it up.


I've noticed this as well, on a client's machine running (I think it's a C-5)

I'm not sure what was causing it, so I immediately put in the Hub Information device( thank you @thebearmay) , and now I have that machine automatically reboot when it's less than 140K free memory.

This is new, and it shouldn't have an impact older machines.

still doing this in latest firmware

doing what exactly?

as noted dropping memory after a local backup every night. see graph for 6 am backup

I had to stop the nightly backups because memory was dropping 75MB to 100MB every night. Maybe 1 out of 5 nights some of the lost memory returned. The Hub memory dropped so low the hub would need to be rebooted once a week. This was happening on all 3 hubs (each running different apps and devices) I have.

With backups off I no longer have the need to reboot accept when updating. The backup before updates is the only one I get now.
