    Memory manager - Profiler

    jylaxx Level 1
      I will have several questions about memory management, garbage collection by Flash.
      First of all can anyone explain what is the link between the memory usage of the profiler and the System.totalMemory value.
      I use a module to display the totalMemory value evolution with a timeline chart (get the totalMemory value every 0.5 second and keeping only last 300 values).
      Here what I get : after about 4 hours of time running, the memory usage peak is about 24 Mbytes, BUT the System.totalMemory is about 600 Mbytes !!
      Before trying to understand why I have this memory consumption, I would like to understand the difference between what the profiler is measuring (24 Mbytes) and the memory used by the Flash Player (600 Mbytes).
