Instance Retention Graph and System.Object[] - confused

Postby Warrenla » Wed Oct 17, 2012 2:51 pm

I am looking at the instance retention graph of an object and I am just not seeing how I can drill down to find out which part of my code is not releasing

I have attached the profile that was generated..

Any suggestions?

To download the profile:
THe object I am looing at is PurchaseView[] which is below system.object[]

Hi Warren,

The filters might help you find out more information about what's holding that instance of PurchaseView[] in memory.

I can also try taking a quick look at your profiling results. I'm having some trouble with the one you sent though--could you please obtain the results again and re-send to with the subject "F0065810"?

Did you figure out what was causing the object[] to be held in memory? I am getting the same results and can not figure out what is object[]. My code does not even reference 539 object[]s of this class.

Support: I have a license for the product. What do you want me to email so you can help me read the output?

I am afraid that the .zip file that is available from your SkyDrive does not contain a results file (.amp7results), it only contains a project file (.amp7).

The results file is needed to look at what you are seeing at your end.
