So, is this a concern? Do I have to remove devices if I want to add another one? Or will Homey manage the memory use a swap file or something?
If you press on the rainbow graph, you’ll get an overview which apps the colors represent, which should provide a clue which app(s) are using up the memory. If it’s a concern or not depends on whether or not you’re noticing any performance issues.
I don’t think Homey uses a swapfile, not would it make a lot of difference because swapping still kills performance.
Same subject, sort of…
With 512MB RAM, every free MB counts. Buying a Pro at the moment is not an option by the way😌
Sometimes, just by checking every now and then, I discover Homey uses a fairly big amount of RAM:
I don’t like to do it, but restarting Homey brings RAM usage to a reasonable level, a whopping 150MB’s less:
Now it looks like I can add a few more apps.
Is there a way to trigger a flow (or script) when Homey RAM uses more than xxxMB’s?
I really don’t like to restart Homey every x days “just to be sure”.
Many thanks in advance.
It offers flow tags for memory usage. You can start a flow every hour and check the value and restart Homey if necessary.
Thanks a million Ronny! Works like a charm.
@djesko Niklas, thanks! That article explains a lot.
If I understand it correctly, I (of course) don’t need to restart Homey, but I just have around 90MB extra RAM for additional apps.
Because Homey RAM usage is back at 230MB already now, while being at 136MB’s right after boot earlier tonight.
