Is this RAM usage Normal?

I have a i7-10875H, 16GB RAM. In the photo u can see that I’m only using brave, one window to be specific, in which I opened 9 github tabs, and the 10th is a google colab code that I’m running using google’s ressources . I repeat I’m not running the colab on my local runtime. I noticed very high ram usage while using colab, almost 50% of my memory ? almost 8 Gigabytes ? Can anyone provide me with a solution ?

** I’ve been using Brave for almost 2 years now and I don’t wanna let it go cause of a technical issue, but this is way too much. **
Thanks in advancs.

**Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.37.116 Chromium: 100.0.4896.127 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Multi-Process Model Background

To understand Chromium’s memory usage, let’s understand the multi-process model. Unlike other browsers, Chromium is divided into multiple processes. When Chromium starts up, it will initially have two processes. One process is the browser process which controls the main browser functionality, and the other is the initial renderer process , which runs the Blink rendering engine and JavaScript (V8). Each time you open a new tab in Chromium, you’ll likely get a new renderer process. With typical browsing, it is common to see 5-7 chrome.exe processes active. Further, if you utilize plugins, apps, or extensions, they may also execute within independent processes. All of Chromium’s processes, whether it is a browser process, a renderer process, or a plugin process, will show under the Task Manager as “chrome.exe”.

I understand that, but what would justify the humongous use of Ram from colab? I mean, isn’t 4gbps too much for a single process that doesn’t even use local runtime ressources ? it scales up to 6 Gbps . Oh and for the notice, I don’t use neither additional extensions nor plugins, I only use brave rewards and the built-in ad blocker :slight_smile: .

Thanks for your reply.


Try clearing browing data, and restarting device to purge temporary files.
