I keep on digging into my system, to figure out why/with what RT is so busy.
Another thing I noticed, when RT is finally started, when browsing to a directory with a number of large (500MB or bigger) TIFF files, it takes a very long time before all the TIFFs are being processed/displayed, even after the ‘loading thumbnails’ message has disappeared and not all the TIFFs are already displayed.
RT is very busy with ‘Hard Faults/s’ aka paging memory. Numbers vary between 70-120 Hard Faults/sec, while at the same time Disk I/O is very low, CPU Usage is only 1-2% and committed memory usage of RT is even <2GB of RAM.
I have the option “serialize read of TIFF files” checked; but it doesn’t seem to make much difference (?)
Is there maybe a memory option for RT to use the available memory in my system (24GB RAM) instead of paging so (too?) much?
Normally I only get this kind of paging (large amounts of Hard Faults/s values) activity when I load >2GB of graphic files into PS CC 2017 with lots of layers and all the internal memory has already been used by PS CC 2017 and there is no ‘Free memory’ left anymore.
But in this case; where RT is keeping the paging memory counter busy, there is more then 20GB of RAM free!
