I recently started doing render farm rendering with my three Macs. All went well. I also use the three Macs for another networked activity. For the last few years I’ve been using my Master Mac to house a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) - Digital Performer (DP). I’ve also been using a networked hosting solution Vienna Ensemble Pro (VEP) housed on the three Macs to house a number of virtual instruments. The virtual instrument plug-ins are housed on the VEP servers and the servers are accessed from within DP. I’ve been using this digital audio configuration for years with no problem. Until recently.
Now, after the recent render farm rendering with the same computers, I’m getting low memory warnings from the OS when I connect VEP to DP - something I’ve never had before. The VEP and DP tech people say they know of no others having this problem and they can think of no reason why I would be having this memory leakage problem. When I open up Activity Monitor you can see in real time the memory leaking out of VEP and DP.
So, I’m wondering if it is possible that the 3D render farm rendering I did just prior to this problem could have had an influence on this memory leakage? This may be a along shot, but I’m trying to explore all the options of changes that occurred before this problem arose. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!
