  • Yep, that was my understanding as well.  It's improved memory performance at the cost of being able to investigate incidents.

    Granted, if you ARE somehow pegging your available memory, you may want to consider hiding some of your largest PVs.  Using DB to do transforms, breaking up processes, using plugins and other services to do memory intensive work, breaking up your PVs into smaller chunks, making more short-lived processes, using a!startProcess instead of subprocess where possible, all work much better to retrieve RAM. 

    Hiding is really a last resort when you've got to the point that you're OK with your bugs never being solved.  Might want to mention it as an option for our team.
