Description matthias.huetsch 2003-09-28 14:32:13 UTC

Memory usage

Customer Need/Problem
SO/OOo appears to use more memory than competing applications.

Product Requirement 
SO/OOo should appear to use up as much memory on Windows as competing applications.


Eng Effort

Matthias Huetsch

Product Concept
Partially addressed by concepts for ID Performance-1 (item 3) and ID
Performance-4, but further improvements can be achieved in the following areas: 

1) Further reduction of memory consumption as visible to a user can be achieved
by requiring all on-demand loaded components to be disposable and to remove them
from memory when no longer in use.

2) Further reduction of memory consumed for mass objects such as spreadsheet
cells or drawing primitives can possibly be achieved by special purpose memory
allocators that can store these objects more compact than a general purpose
memory allocator can do.

Further reduction of memory consumed during normal program use seems only
possible through investigating individual cases where abnormal memory
consumption is discovered.

Comment 2 lutz.hoeger 2003-10-23 07:44:09 UTC
added keyword Q-PCD
Comment 3 t8m 2004-04-01 20:51:04 UTC
One of the too much memory using parts is the spellchecker - especially when you
use the functionality for suggesting the correct word. In such case the memory
usage almost doubles!

Comment 4 Martin Hollmichel 2004-05-28 15:11:21 UTC
according to the announcement on releases
( this issue
will be re-targeted to OOo Later.
Comment 5 matthias.huetsch 2004-06-01 12:12:06 UTC
As explained in the initial description, memory usage issues will either be
partly addressed
by issue 20269 (Startup Performance) or they need individual investigation.

Beyond that, remaining memory usage issues have been re-evaluated as being of a
broader scope than anticipated, and have been re-prioritized in favor of other
They might be revisited on an individual base, or in a later release.

already fixed ?
