Lightroom using too much RAM

Hey there, my name is Ofek.

Lately, I have been using lightroom cc (not classic) a lot, and for no reason, lightroom went crazy with the RAM usage. I have a new and Stronge Computer that I specially bought for editing and adobe software.

- Amd Razor 9 3900x 12 core processor

-  Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super

- 32 GB of RAMS

 

Before a week, I had 16 GB RAM, which was supposed to be enough, but after some editing in lightroom, he started getting slow and sometimes stuck specialty when I exported photos. When I open the activity monitor, I saw that lightroom using like 80% of my Ram. So I went and bought another 16 GB RAMS (now I have 32GB RAM), and I thought I solve the problem.

 

Three days later, and the same problem starts to appear again. Lightroom starts to use more and more rams.
Today I edit some photos, and I felt it was slower than usual, so I checked again and saw that lightroom was using 15 GB of RAM.. 

 

Is there anything I can do to solve it?
Should I switch to Lightroom Classic?

I'm having this same problem.  I'm running MacOS Big Sur 11.2.3 the latest version of LR Classic 10.2.  Let me know if you find a solution.  I think mostly goes up when I use the Develop module, even if just sitting idle.

I'm having the same problem with 32Gb ram.

Lightroom uses more and more RAM until it goes into freeze / stuck, no matter what kind of task is doing; syncing folders, importing photos, actualizing metadata...

Is there any idea to solve this behavior.

Thanks
