Issue Details

My project acquires and logs data, has no errors and runs fine. After some time it slows down considerably. Why does this happen?


A known reason for this is the presence of a memory leak.
Refer to the "Rules for Better Memory Usage" section of this VI Memory Usage​ documentation for helpful best practices.
