customer sample file
The attached customer file, when run with "gswin32c 004580_ImputMix_Test_FPR.pdf" uses increasing amounts of memory as the job progresses, and also seems (subjectively) to be slower than the 9.10 release.
Chris has bisected this to commit:
"Fix bug 689805: Use a clist for pages with transparency that need lots of RAM"
Assigning to Ray since it seems to be clist related, and related to one of his commits.
Note that the performance drop between 9.10 and 9.15 is mostly due to now using clists for the transparency groups - setting something like -dMaxBitmap=64m on the command line will keep performance sprightly, but prevent memory use explosions with transparency groups covering large areas.
Just pointing out that setting -dMaxBitmap=1g or larger will not always use
1 Gb of RAM, but will only use the same amount as the display device did with
the code prior to the implementation of the automatic 'clist' mode for this
type of device.
