Modern UI missing Memory status

I prefer the modern UI, it feels quite snappy and the improved view and annotation possibilities are nice. I am missing a few features from the classic UI for which I already saw some feedback.

One of the minor things I miss is the memory status and option to quickly clean garbage. I’d love to have that as an option again, just to be able to monitor memory usage and confirm I do not need additional cleaners in the workflow.

Hi @wnieuwstraten ,
Welcome to the KNIME forum!

I am glad to know that you are exploring the modern UI. To add memory status in KAP 5.2, you can see the option here Preferences > General > Show heap status

I hope this helps.

Thanks,

Hi @wnieuwstraten ,
After discussing this with our developers, @schramm found out that the memory status bar disappears after the AP restarts, and there’s a workaround to get it back, which is to
disable → apply → enable → apply.

To conclude, getting the memory status bar in modern UI is a workaround but is not “really supported.”

Thanks,
Sanket
