4 Ways To Reduce RAM Consumption When Working With Netpeak Checker

RAM is a very important component of a computer, as it’s responsible for the information directly transmitted to the central processing unit. As such, a small amount of RAM can slow down the PC.

Many people don’t actually have the RAM they need, which isn’t surprising. We’re now doing more with our tech, doing it in parallel, and doing it more efficiently. In this fast-growing world, 4 or 8 GB of RAM may not be enough anymore for everyday work (although it would have been fine just a few years back). We need more memory if we want to accomplish all of our tasks.

RAM is an energy-dependent part of a computer memory system in which, during computer operation, the executable machine code of the program is stored, as well as input, output, and intermediate data that are processed by the processor.

The following could signal that your computer needs more RAM:

  • it slows down drastically
  • messages about low memory pop up on the screen
  • programs or games stop opening

You can check out the state of your computer's RAM for yourself in your settings.

If you have macOS, go to launchpad and open the application called ‘Activity Monitor’.

Activity Monitor on Mac

Go to the 'Memory' section at the top of the screen. There you can see detailed information about your computer’s current memory usage. General information will also be presented below: how much memory there is in total, how much is currently being used, and visual statistics for the last 12 hours.

If you have Windows, search for your ‘Task manager’ or press Ctrl + Shift + Esc.

This opens the Task Manager. The main fields to pay attention to are ‘Memory’ and ‘Power usage’.

Below are the four most effective solutions for reducing RAM consumption. If your computer slows down when you run Netpeak Checker, try these fixes.

Crawling a Site With Disabled Parameters

Remove all unnecessary parameters, and you may speed things up.

Tip: If you need to utilize, for example, 12 parameters, but your device can't handle it, split them up into multiple scans. This won’t significantly increase analysis time, and it will reduce the amount of RAM consumed.

Set Up a Backup

Backups help reduce RAM consumption as well as provide recovery options if programs crash. In simple terms, a backup is a version copy. If you set your backup to update every 15 minutes, you won’t have to worry about data loss.

To install a backup in Netpeak Checker, do the following:

  1. Go to settings
  2. Open the 'General' window
  3. Check the box under 'Data backup'.

Use Restrictions In Settings

As a rule, the more restrictions, the more difficult it is for the program to process them. This uses more RAM, and your computer may begin to lag.

Let's experiment with changing speed limits for on-page audits and see if it affects memory.

To do this, we go to the settings in the ‘On page’ section. Initial figures are as follows:

  • Number of threats: 10
  • Delay between requests: 0 ms
  • Response timeout: 30,000ms

We observe the average load of the operating system with these values.

The next step in the experiment is to reduce the constraints and check the results.

  • Number of threats: 1
  • Delay between requests: 0 ms
  • Response timeout: 12,000 ms

On page settings

This freed up RAM. 'Usage memory' has changed from 'Low' to 'Very low'. Therefore, we can conclude that removing limits (or reducing them to minimal values) will help solve low RAM issues.

Disable All Third-party Services

Any open applications are going to use RAM, including browser tabs, extensions, and so on. Below is a list of what you can close to reduce RAM consumption:

  • Browser tabs
  • Unnecessary browser extensions
  • Downloading files that are in a ‘pending’ state
  • Junk files
  • Applications that haven’t been used for a long time, etc.

If none of the above helps, you can take your gadget in for repair. You can get your RAM replaced, and your computer will get a second life!

Short Resume

Netpeak Checker is a powerful analytics application that can consume a lot of RAM. However, you shouldn’t shy away from this powerful tool simply because your computer doesn’t have enough memory. The tips in this article can help you work quickly and efficiently with our application without wasting a lot of memory on your computer.
