I’ve been using Antergos for a couple of years now.
I started facing a RAM eating issue and I have no clue what’s causing it and how to fix it up.
My system is using Antergos with Gnome and has 16Gb of RAM.
Whenever I boot, with nothing running, I get like 1.6Gb already filled.
When I run a browser, Chromium, with a couple of tabs, I easily hit 5Gb RAM and more.
So, when I use a couple of additional programs, like Sublime Text, occasionally Gimp, and similar web design and development tools, I easily hit the 16Gb bar.
I’m pretty sure all the things I run shouldn’t take that much RAM. I’ve been using a 4Gb - 8Gb for years without never filling them totally.
Any thoughts are welcome.
