    Hi,

    I’ve got my system for my picade completely set up my 32gb sd card is as good as full. But i noticed something today my emulationstation is taking up 100+MB of system ram since the PI only has 1 GB hmm seems actually about 768 MB of ram when looking with htop 100MB is a lot. Also whenever an emulator is started emulation station is still running hogging that 100MB+ ram.

    Of course this is probably due to emulation station loading everything up in memory (gamelists / skins etc).

    I’m using the pixel skin and have not tried changing to another skin to see if the memory goes down, but i actually suspect it to be due to the gamelists.

    On other (older) systems (with less ram) i used in the past. The menu proces was replaced with the emulator being ran so all memory was availible and the menu was not running anymore. I understand this is not really possible with retropie / emulation station as well since yeah it takes a really long time to load up emulation station when you got lots of systems / roms / big gamelists.

    One idea is to not load all gamelist immediatly but only a default one and load the next gamelist whenever you go to a new system. This probably isn’t optimal as well since you’ll have to wait for the gamelist of the next choosen system to be loaded.

    Not sure if there is a really good way to go about this but if anything could be done for it it would be great since 100 MB out of 768 is 1/7th of my actual total ram availible.

    also i’m only using 64MB for the gpu memory i’m sure other people are using more ram for the gpu for perhaps N64 emulation if they have about the same amount of roms as i have they have even less ram availble to use with the emulators.

    I’m just posting it here as a reference though not a complaint just to start a discusion about it, figure out where the memory is begin used etc

    Okay Did some more testing:

    when i booted up my retropie emulation station was using 113 MB of ram. I temporary renamed the roms folder to roms.bak and started emulationstation it was still using 90 MB of ram even though not one single gamelist was loaded and i only saw the retropie section.

    Then i ran “pmap -x <PIDofEmulationstation>” this showed me where emulationstation was using the memory for. It seems emulation station is using lots of libs one in particular takes 22MB of ram being “libicudata.so.52.1” i have no idea what this lib is used for though, there are a few chunks of 8188 KB but it says anon so i have no idea where this is comming from.

    I guess not much can be done then since removing all roms only freed up about 10 – 20 mb (had uninstalled some themes as well that i did not use, no idea if this has an impact)

    You should have your gpu mem split be at 128MB or more.

    <p abp=”241″>You should have your gpu mem split be at 128MB or more.

    any idea as to why it should be 128mb or higher ? I have not noticed any problems (yet). Does it improve performance ? (did not notice it when i tried it out at least not with ppsspp). Emulationstation is also NOT showing a white screen of death with the pixel theme (which is very small compared to some other themes)
