The Sonos controller for Mac OS has a major memory leak. I first reported this to Sonos several years ago. Sent them all the data, etc. Others have done the same. This is not something new and not something they’re unaware of. Here’s an old closed thread on the topic.
Meanwhile, here we are, years later, and it still leaks huge amounts of memory. When first loaded, it uses a bit less than 150MB. After running for a long period of time, I’ve seen the memory footprint as high as more than 9GB! That’s absurd.
Why doesn’t Sonos address this? Probably because the average consumer doesn’t know (or care) what a memory leak is, as long as it doesn’t crash their machine. They don’t realize that the ever-increasing memory footprint gradually slows their machine down with more and more swapping.
C’mon, Sonos. Fix this.
