Hopefully this is the right stack exchange site to post on... Didn't feel like it was a programming question for SO. Anyway, I'm running Visual Studio 2015 and got a notification to from Windows to close VS2015 because it's running low on memory. I have 24GB of RAM and just rebooted yesterday, so I think something is way off here. I sometimes use the C# interactive window, and python 2.7 interactive window, but those were not in use at the time of this message.
Note: As I'm writing this, I just got an "Unknown hard crash" message from devenv.exe (vs2015 process). But the Standard Collector service is still running using up 10.7GB.
Does anyone know what the Standard Collector is? And what might cause the RAM usage to spike?
Note: Again as I'm writing, I just noticed the Standard Collector Service stopped in my task manager and I have all my RAM back.
Update: It sounds like this might be a bug that the VS team tried to fix in update 1. I definitely have update 1 installed, but perhaps I should try to reproduce in some sample code and send it to the VS team. The devenv instance that crashed was also not currently debugging. (Although, there is another instance where it is debugging as you can see by the .vshost.exe extension in task manager)
That devenv instance did not crash and it's actually still running in the debugger now without problems.
