Checking memory usage by Igor
Sat, 11/24/2018 - 08:13 pm
We are using Igor for analysis of hyperspectral data, each set being about 300-400 MB in size. After loading many scans, the size of an Igor experiment can easily go up to a few GB, and that can cause problems with the computer sometimes. Is there a command in Igor to check for the current size of Igor experiment, so that our function automatically warns users when it becomes larger than a set limit?
We have a function to 'delete raw data' to lighten the RAM usage after finishing data reduction of each scan, but that has to be done manually (after users decide the data reduction is successful).
