Infinity Loading of Execution

I’m use n8n in server with docker. Sometimes there is an error in the workflow, but when I want to open the execution, then I start an endless/infinity download. The computer on which I want loading the execution has 8GB of RAM. When I try to loading the execution, the browser tab uses up to 6GB of RAM. Chrome shows an “Out of memory” error after a minute and Firefox loading the execution indefinitely. This problem started after updating n8n to version 200 and older (now version 203.1), earlier, on version 198 and earlier, there was no such problem. What can be done to solve this problem?

Sorry to hear that you have problems.!

If you have large binary data you could try to setting:


It will then only send the binary data to the browser when you actually want to look at it, else it will just keep the reference to it in memory and will so require much less memory.

FYI, that will only change the behavior for new executions.
