    What is the maximum memory that can be allocated by Flash Player


      In other threads, the response has been that flash consumes a certain percentage of available memory.   For example https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1007636 .


      What rules govern Flash Player memory usage?

      When is the Flash Player forced to perform garbage collection?


      I have done testing with a Flash application using a VM with 12GB, 4GB, 2GB and 1GB.  On the 12GB box, the IE process went up to 1700MB and never reclaimed any space.  on The 1GB box, the IE process went up to 677MB, and then release memory back down to 99MB.


      Interested in IE8 / IE11 with Flash Player 17
