when SSH in and looking at htop seeing usage for RAM like 5.4G/7.68G avail and SWAP 4G full I wondering how will my RPi cope with necessity for 5G or RAM available for it according info in description:
“LlamaGPT consumes approximately 5GB of RAM. As a result, it is not suitable for users running umbrelOS on a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB RAM. For the best user experience, at least 8GB RAM is recommended.”
(The state or memory usage after restart is 3.75G RAM and 1.6G SWP and it’s getting bigger over time stopping at ± numbers above.)
Should be it done like SSH in and stopping mempool because that is like only installed app that using some meaningfull amount of RAM?
Cos there’s no stop button in Umbrel UI (for release from memory, pause will IMO keep it in mem.).
I’m asking because don’t want destroy my SD OS card by repeated W/R in btw RAM/SWP.
What community thinking about this?
For this moment you can just run this.
sudo ~/umbrel/scripts/app stop mempool
and then this when you need it again
sudo ~/umbrel/scripts/app start mempool
I personally made space on my spare Pi by removing unused apps. The above method could cause issues with apps like bitcoin, electrs, or lightning, so just be mindful
So it’s not really advised to use it unless one really check RAM otherwise it will wear down SD card?
Yuck for anyone who don’t think about it…

All other apps consume merely 0,3G RAM - so will not do that.

Meaning that is if mentioned apps are stopped, cos Mempool is just tool for working with what bitcoind provides.
Thats why only Mempool mentioned - or is (the app) it somehow used also after installing by Bitcoin,Elctrs,LN? Hope not.
Just asking if understood right.
Yep you got it.
