Cheers Triblers, thanks for the good work. Sadly since the upgrade from 7.6 to 7.7 I have a problem.
I have been running Tribler for a long time with approx 120 torrents of which 70% finished and the rest rare stuff I hope will become available again some day. I have been upgrading Tribler for months without problems, but now the following happens:
When I start Tribler it starts fine with a normal memory footprint (like < 0.5 GB). From the start it slowly but steadily grows in memory. Last I saw before going to bed was like 5 GB (my system has 16 GB) and growing. Now in the morning I found Tribler crashed again. I saw the same behavior repeatedly with v7.7.0 and now again with v7.7.1.
By the way: when I say the Tribler crashed I mean the following: before I saw a GUI and Task Manager shows a nested set of “tribler.exe” processes. After the crash I do not have a GUI anymore and see a single “tribler.exe” process remaining. When I start Tribler again a dialog mentions that some process is still running and asks to kill it. When I confirm the kill it complains about a process ID not found and cannot kill it. After I kill it myself and try again Tribler starts fine again and the used memory starts steadily growing again.
Lastly in my %APPDATA% folder in found the “.Tribler” folder and attached tribler-core-error.log (196.3 KB) and tribler-gui-error.log (1.8 KB). The last run started 16/Jan/2021 and ended 17/Jan/2021.
PS: I started cleaning up the torrents and preparing for starting a-fresh with a clean install without migrated data. So any fix for the above: I cannot reproduce and test anymore. Nevertheless something was wrong, I hope the above can help make Tribler better…
