Ready API hangs frequently and consuming 7 GB of memory

Ready API hangs frequently and consuming 7 GB of memory

I am using the latest licensed version of Ready API. It hangs frequently and it is taking more time to start up.

 

This seems very poor when comparing the SOAP UI

Re: Ready API hangs frequently and consuming 7 GB of memory

It is really difficult to comment without knowing the usage of yours.

Couple of suggestions:
  1. Close the unused projects.

  2. Use the tool to design the tests and execute the tests using "READYAPI_HOME/bin/testrunner" utility in command-line mode.
  3. Use appropriate heap settings.

You can also look at the documentation regarding the optimizing memory settings:

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried memory management mentioned. Still it does not work. I think that having the huge test history will be the reason for this. When I disable the 'Test History' in preference , it is faster. Badly I need test history to review my failures on each run.

Re: Ready API hangs frequently and consuming 7 GB of memory

I run into this quite often as well. While not a solution, I have a potential bandaid. I have a project that I use as a test-bed for various groovy script projects. It's small and I usually always have it open. I have a groovy script in there that runs the following code:

 

System.gc();

 

I run this whenever I see ReadyAPI using more than a few gigs of memory and sometimes it can help me lessen how many times I have to close and re-open the program.

Is that even after you follow above 3 suggestions?

Yes. It was. It is fine after multiple restarts.
