This is the first time I’m using openbox.
I moved from Gnome.
With the default setup, The desktop starts up with 400+ MB Ram consumption and stays up.
Live Antergos gnome session ran in 300-400MB consumption.
My last Heavily bloated Gnome desktop used to run at 500+ MB
400+MB Ram consumption is not a big problem the problem is it reaches to 800-900MB consumption pretty easily.
My last Gnome Desktop used to reach 800-900MB rarely. and would mostly stick with 600-700MB consumption.
Above 1GB RAM consumption, My laptop, having 1.5GB RAM starts lagging.
Did I say lagging? I mean HANGing! Forcing me to turn the system off manually.
Below it it runs smoothly
I check the system-monitor time to time. Everything except the RAM consumption seems normal.
‘Top’ command in terminal gives same results.
Funny thing is, on totalling the the individual RAM consumption of the applications, It reaches like 180-225MB (with nothing heavy running)
Is this what we call “Memory leaking”?
