We’ve recently developed a few dashboards on Perspective. These would be (permanently) displayed on some Smart TV’s around the plant and would include some relevant info through labels and charts. After first setting them up thought the TVs’ Chrome browser app, the client reported the TVs’ to restart or even freeze. They had to manually start up the browser again, but then after some hours they would restart again.
To discard performance issues we first removed any style animations on the views. This only made the TVs’ restart after a longer period of time. We then started to replace Charts and any embedded views by literally duplicating Flex Containers, etc. Basically tried to make the views as simple as possible. This fixed the problem in some cases, specifically in views with the least amount of elements, but the problem persisted, though in a longer period of time, in views with more elements.
Just recently we set up mini PCs’ behind a couple of TV screens. This seemed to fix the problem, except after a week of being setup, one of the PCs showed an error message saying it was running out of memory.
Has anyone else encountered such problem before? Is there any way to control or dump memory usage after a set period of time? We are completely lost on this matter, thanks in advance for your attention and responses. In the meantime we’ll continue to run some memory usage monitoring tests and analysis. Will update as results come up.
