Since a few days when I try to build Master or 2.9.3 branch it makes excessive use of RAM. It occupies my available 24GB in a moment and it quickly begins to fill the swap memory, so my system becomes almost unusable and I have to force the termination of the process.
I have installed CUDA 11 a week or two ago. Could the problem be related to it? But I remember having managed to compile with CUDA 11 without this problem of excessive RAM usage.
The problem begins to occur when there are 5 to 7 “ptxas” processes working simultaneously and each of them occupying around 4GB.
I am building with precompiled libraries, CUDA and OptiX enabled. “make -j8” for my 8 threads CPU
