v4.20.0 consumes noticeably more RAM than v4.19.12

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug

Using steam-user v4.19.12 my application consumes around 97MB RAM but after updating steam-user to v4.20.0 this RAM usage shoots up to around 190MB. Both values stay around the same during the lifetime of the application, so the Garbage Collector doesn’t seem to clean anything up that would bring both values closer together again.

I can reproduce this behavior back to back, just by installing the other version using npm. The code didn’t change during testing.
This issue isn’t really that noticeable on a desktop machine but annoying on a smaller machine (like a Raspberry Pi) with more limited resources.


Tested with node.js v16.10.0 (latest) and v14.17.6 (LTS)

OS: Arch Linux (Kernel: 5.14.8-zen1-1-zen)
