Memory allocation in Paraview
Hello, I'm trying to make an animation (3D isocontour) using XDMF reader of HDF5 data (1Go per file). I have about a thousand files to process. When I'm creating the animation, Paraview always open and allocate the new timestep in memory meaning that after 10 time step the memory allocated by Paraview is already about 10Go, not enough for my system (8Go). Then, Paraview crashes... I've tried a different approach by using python scripts to open each file independently but I got the same memory leaking problem. Even if I delete everything in my pipeline, Paraview always hold some data in memory. So when I move to the next time step, there is some memory (1Go) remaining from the last time step... The same issue happens, Paraview grows in memory and crashes... Why is memory leaking in Paraview? Why am I not able to free the memory of the application using python script? Delete(*) or del * does not seem to clear everything.. Any solution for me? The only solution I see is to create a bash script to open and close the paraview application for each of my time step... Thank you.
