This simple code makes app crash with out of memory:

 

var buf;
console.log(process.memoryUsage())
for(i=0; i<10000000; i++){
    buf = Buffer.alloc(1024)
    buf.clear
    delete buf
    buf = null
}
console.log(process.memoryUsage())

So how properly recycle the buffer so it can be reused? Not sure if clear or delete are appropriate methods but how then?

what's your interest
