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?

  • What did you use to say that it was using a lot of memory, and what specifically is using the js file?

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.
