Issue Details

I have a VI that uses arrays and shift registers that is causing my working memory to grow and shrink unpredictably. What is LabVIEW doing in the background that causes this?


LabVIEW handles a large amount of memory management in the background while a VI is running.

Additional Information

While memory issues can be difficult to debug, these tools will enable you to better understand how LabVIEW is using the memory that it has been allocated. Many of these concepts are also discussed in the LabVIEW Performance training course offered by National Instruments.
