Version 4.22 also has the hibernation function, I use it every night.
No problem, I continue to do it manually.

hy wrote: I was wondering, for the folks with the memory leak--do you have the option "Single Preview Tab" checked? (I think you should have it checked).
You find that under the KStars options, then FITS, then it's a checkbox on that page.
I believe that KStars/fitsviewer would leak tabs if you had it unchecked (perhaps it should limit the number of tabs, I don't know if it does or doesn't).

Yes is checked and Fits viewer is disabled.
Thanks

Thanks knro, next time I create a log, HIPS is disabled.
I forgot to mention that they are all FITS image ( fits viewer is disabled ).

Lead_weight wrote: I have a 4GB RPi4 and the memory leak stops it too after about 4 hours of imaging. Happens every single time. I've since changed how I use KStars/EKOS. I used to run it all on the Pi device and would VNC in to the desktop and monitor it from a computer in the house. But since the memory leak, I only run the INDI Server now on the Pi Device and connect to it from KStars/EKOS in the house. This method does not experience the memory leak, and I've been able to image reliably now for about a month.


I also use it remotely, and as I said in the computer I have 8GB of memory.
After the automatic capture of over 100 images (asteroid orbit measurement) the computer becomes slow, so much so that I have to close kstars to free up more than 7gb of memory.
Every time download an image it takes up a lot of ram memory.

I'm experiencing the same behavior.

When it got to finishing a capture, downloading, and beginning the next capture however the memory would increase by ~20 MiB each time until it ran out of memory when downloading a capture and kstars would force close.


Yes, that's the problem, it seems that Kstars doesn't free up memory after the image has been downloaded (in my case every FITS image has a weight greater than 30 MB), after more than 100 images are captured, my computer with 8 GB of memory it does not respond and requires "absolutely" that I close kstars.

With the latest kstars, indi, indi-3rdparty.
And all image captured in automatic scheduler.

Teseo created a new topic ' Internal guide and hot pixel' in the forum. 7 months ago

because of the heat, my meade dsi has several hot pixels
and the internal guide always tries to follow a defective pixel and returns an error
using a dark does not solve, only the "median" effect works
it would be useful to say not to use small stars less than half a millimeter :)

Now I have deleted the files:

/home/pcxz/.local/share/kstars/asteroids.dat
/home/pcxz/.local/share/kstars/comets.dat
and restarted the program, No problem.

I updated the data on asteroids and comets, from menu: Data->Updates
No problem.
