Out of Memory error for large data sets in OpenBrowser

Tech Note: TN0885
Product: OpenBrowser
Version: < 2.12
Date Added: 2010-11-10


When the OpenBrowser plot is refreshed, the entire data set is loaded into memory. For large data sets (larger than ~500MB) this can frequently cause Out of Memory errors that force OpenBrowser to close.


In the menu, select View > Data View Table. This will turn the plot off and show a data table of timestamps, which uses less memory.


This was fixed in v2.12. Upgrade to v2.12 or above.
