Our server has had some issues lately and we've been keeping our eye on the processes running.

One process taking up a lot of memory is using CUI.debug.js. I'm assuming it's used for debugging? What is this? Do we need it? How can I turn it off?

Thanks, Ninel

Which Process? Is this on a web front end? – James Love Feb 17 '12 at 16:49
This is our intranet and it is on SharePoint 2010. – ninel Feb 17 '12 at 18:42
What did you use to say that it was using a lot of memory, and what specifically is using the js file? – James Love Feb 17 '12 at 19:11

In the masterpage, look for the ScriptManager tag and set the ScriptMode attribute to Release to disable the loading of .debug.js files by the server to the clients.
