Hi, Given the incident energy of a few GeV, 100 is quite a small number. First of all, if you are visualizing all the events, that is the first thing to drop. Secondarily, if you keep trajectories or events themselves for more than one events, that should be given up. If your problem still persists, check all the user objects you instantiate during the event, e.g. hits, are properly deleted at the end of each event. Hope this helps, Makoto > -----Original Message----- > From: Neil Fazel [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] > Sent: Monday, July 12, 2010 6:57 PM > To: runmanage-g4hn > Subject: managing memory > > > *** Discussion title: Run Management > > Hello.
