Application cleans up at shutdown but grows at runtime

Hey there,

Could someone please tell me if AQTime can help with leaks that occur during program's run, e.g. something is being added to a list and not deleted at runtime, but the list and all that is contained within it is freed on shutdown (thus not showing on the report). I currently use FastMM, in Delphi XE, but I don't believe it can be of any help here. I tried AQTime that came with Delphi XE/XE2, and that show leaks that FastMM shows.  Do I need AQTime Pro? What do I need to look at to find the runtime leaks?

Kind regards, Dan

  • Hello Dan,

    You can use AQtime's Monitor panel to watch your application's memory usage at run time. Also, you can make use of the Get Results command during the profiling to see what objects exist in your application. It is up to you to decide whether or not these are leaking objects.

    Do I need AQTime Pro?

    The features I mentioned above are available in your edition of the tool. However, as AQtime Pro has much more features, you may be interested in upgrading:
