A Native Collection has not been disposed, resulting in a memory leak. Enable Full StackTraces to get more details.

  1. What happened:
    I upgraded to Unity 2021.3.3f1 LTS and I had the error: “A Native Collection has not been disposed, resulting in a memory leak. Enable Full StackTraces to get more details.”
    Searching for the solution it seems that installing “com.jobs.entities” and than check from menu Jobs > Leak Detection > Ful Stack Traces (expensive), should solve the problem. But not for me. After installing entities (it took me hours!! it remained very long “waiting for package to install…”), I didn’t see the option “Leak Detection” in "Jobs. So, I restarted Unity and when I open I don’t see anymore not even “Jobs” this time. And this time show this error I reported here:

Library\PackageCache\com.unity.entities@0.50.1-preview.2\Unity.Entities\RetainBlobAssetSystem.cs(6,5): error SGICE002: Seeing this error indicates a bug in the dots compiler. We’d appreciate a bug report (About->Report a Bug…). Thnx! <3 System.IO.IOException: Cannot create ‘C:\Users\emili\My project\Library\Bee\artifacts\1900b0aE.dag\Unity.Entities.AdditionalFile.txt’ because a file or directory with the same name already exists.

  1. How can we reproduce it using the example you attached:
    I showed out of nothing, just by upgrading to 2021.3.3
    but then I changed my project to 2020, and it shows also there.
    After installing entities, I got a bunch of other errors.

PS: I removed Unity and Unity Hub completely from my pc, and installed it again. The error persists!

It happened the same to me and the solution was simpler that it seems, just call Dispose() at the end of your webRequest will fix it:

 private IEnumerator Login(string userId, string password)
                    string page = "login";
                    string apiPath = apiURL + page;
                    LoginAccount loginAccount = new LoginAccount(userId, password);
                    string jsonString = JsonUtility.ToJson(loginAccount);
                    byte[] bodyRaw = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(jsonString);
                    UnityWebRequest webRequest = new(apiPath, "POST");
                    webRequest.uploadHandler = new UploadHandlerRaw(bodyRaw);
                    webRequest.downloadHandler = new DownloadHandlerBuffer();
                    webRequest.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json");
                    yield return webRequest.SendWebRequest();
                    switch (webRequest.result)
                        case UnityWebRequest.Result.ConnectionError:
                        case UnityWebRequest.Result.DataProcessingError:
                            Debug.LogError(page + ":

Error: " + webRequest.error);
case UnityWebRequest.Result.ProtocolError:
Debug.LogError(page + ":
HTTP Error: " + webRequest.error);
case UnityWebRequest.Result.Success:
Debug.Log(page + ":
Received: " + webRequest.downloadHandler.text);
Debug.Log(page + ":
" + webRequest.result);


I found what is causing me the memory leak. It was WakaTime plugin. A plugin to monitor the time you spend on using Unity. This is the issue on GitHub: Native Collection has not been disposed, resulting in a memory leak. · Issue #29 · vladfaust/unity-wakatime · GitHub
