ProcessBook is Soooooo Sloooooooow

So, we're working on dashboards, and specifically we're trying to have some screens where there are about 4-6 SPC charts running. I've noticed that ProcessBook slows way down when loading those screens - which I suppose is to be expected as it's processing the data - but sometimes it just slows right down to the point where ProcessBook just crashes.


I've watched the ProcessBook process itself and noticed that depending on the number of SPC charts on the page, the application will consume a good chunk of memory (as is to be expected I suppose), but when I close that SPC screen, the memory is not released. ProcessBook holds on to the memory, and if I open subsequent pages with SPC charts, the problem just gets worse until PB crashes.


Is there anything I can do in script or PB setting that will force it to release memory used by trending when the screen is closed, or is this just a memory leak inherent with using SPC charts in ProcessBook?
