Lower memory usage: release network event actor objects from the server


(DevTools :: Netmonitor, defect, P3)



(Not tracked)


(Reporter: msucan, Unassigned)



The network monitor needs to release the network event actor objects from the server once it no longer needs them - see how the web console does this.

Do note that things get complicated: life time of network requests in the web console is longer - we keep them across page loads. If netmonitor releases a NEA needed by the console, links in the console will become broken. The web console does retrieve network request information only on demand.
Priority: -- → P3
This is easier to fix if we implement a NetworkEventClient, see bug 812613.
