Resource utilization with version >= 9.0 increased..Is it normal?


Recently I upgraded to v9.0 and then to v9.2. The one thing I noticed most is that Katalon is now consuimng more machine resources as compared to previous versions i,e < 9.0. Now new version making machine to respond slow whenever I even start the studio and If I try to run some tests during test development, the impact is more worse.

When no test is running through studio, machine memory consumption remains around 1500MB while with older versions, it was around 600~700MB.

When some tests are running with new version >= 9.0, the memory consumption reaches >2000MB in some cases while with older versions, it remained around ~1000MB.

Attached a screenshot with new & old version while no test is running.

For me it is quite irritating because with new version, machine response is not normal anymore.

Using same machine with older & new versions of Katalon which has specs

Processor      ---- Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8265U CPU @ 1.60GHz   1.80 GHz
RAM            ---- 16.0 GB (15.7 GB usable)
System Type    ---- 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

Any suggestions to improve this situation?
