In the system info, it says: Real memory available to Lightroom: 65434.4 MB
However, My graphic ram is 6gb grtx 2060, my computer memory is 64GB, not sure how I can adjust the physical momory in 'performance' tab.
when i do any local adjustment, it just takes too much time. changing the size of brush will take 54-10 seconds. holding alt to use eraser takes 5-10 seconds too.
When i check my resource monitor, it shows the same thing: LrC uses 7gb of ram, and all graphic memory (about5-6gb), when I close the LrC, the graphic ram drops immidietly.

A common problem. Your CPU is not fast enought to do all the calculations and make the response appear instantaneous. Memory is not the problem. Your possible workarounds are:
1) Turn OFF the Graphics Processor use in Lightroom
2) Do all of the lens corrections and transforms in Lightroom as the last editing step, after you have done the local adjustments
3) Do the local adjustments in Photoshop
4) Get a faster CPU
thanks for your input.
my cpu usage is rarely at 100%, even when it was extremely slow, it was only using 10-20% of cpu capacity.
my memory on my graphic gard is however, full. when i turn off the gpu option, my performance is still limited. I have a lot of resources with ram and cpu that is not utilised by LrC and the program itself is still slow.
Since you have 1920x1080 (or 1920x1200) monitors, your GPU should be turned OFF in Lightroom. But if that doesn't help, then this is a common problem that lots of brushing and/or lot of spot healing on an image causes Lightroom to slow down. More memory will not help.
Could you elaborate why at this resolution I should turn off GPU?
Excuse me if I don't trust your answer, as the first answer you did was incorrect. You suggest me to buy a new cpu, yet not one core of my current one is at full capacity (6core i7 unlocked).
The bottleneck that I can see, is the memory on my graphic card, when i shut down LrC, that goes down immidietly. And when I check the LrC system info, it shows 6GB only (when I have a lot more system memory installed). this 6GB cap exist whether i turn on or off GPU processor on my LrC. And there is no way in LrC that I can make adjustment.
GPU turned has a trivially small impact on most operations with a 1920x1080 monitor, but a few operations, such as brushing and spot healing are slowed down when the GPU is on. So, no benefit, but definite drawback, to have GPU on with a 1920x1080 monitor.
Should have said "GPU turned ON has a trivially small ..."
