Using Aspose.Slides on Linux Container with .NET Core Does Not Release Memory

Using aspose slide on linux container with .net core does not release memory
It just accumulates on every ppt download.

aspose slides version - 22.12
.net core 5

Could you please share the source code and source files to further investigate this issue in detail?

My docker file has:

RUN echo ttf-mscorefonts-installer msttcorefonts/accepted-mscorefonts-eula select true | debconf-set-selections
RUN apt-get update -q && \
  DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer fontconfig libgdiplus curl -y -q && \
  fc-cache -vr

Aspose version : 23.4
.net core 5

Memory keeps on growing on linux container with just the below code:

for (int i = 0; i < 20; i++)
    using (var presentation = new Presentation("DiagnosticReportExportTemplate.pptx"))
        using (var ms = new MemoryStream())
            presentation.Save(ms, SaveFormat.Pptx);
} (514.8 KB)

Thank you for the details.

Hello @andrey.potapov and @stanislav.miroshnichenko1

Any update on our issue. Our May 2023 release is blocked due to this aspose slides issue.

The issue is still open. Unfortunately, I don’t have additional information yet. We apologize for any inconvenience.

When can we expect a fix for this ticket? We are delayed in our May 2023 release.
Please suggest.

I requested plans on the issue from our development team for you. Thank you for your patience.

Please specify the following additional information:

  • Which exactly .NET target framework are you using?
  • How do you use Aspose.Slides (assembly reference or NuGet package)?

We are using .net core 5.0 ( “net5.0”)
and referring Aspose.Slides.NET from NuGet package. I have also shared our docker file in the thread above. @andrey.potapov

Thank you for the additional information. I forwarded it to our developers.

Could you please also share your metrics? For example, what is the memory consumption at the last iteration of the cycle?

I just now triggered 2 ppt downloads, the same ppt that i attached earlier in my code snippet. With each ppt download, the memory spike is of 700-900Mbs and it does not release memory after the operation completes.
No memory is released after the ppt operations.

Thank you for the additional information. I forwarded it to our developers.

@andrey.potapov We have already purchased a new license and paid support for Aspose.
Please expedite the ticket and share us the update as we have a critical release (May 2023) pending due to it.
