memory usage to high

Recommended Posts

Hi to All,     I first wanted to say if you truly want the power users to use your product first you must bring down memory usage just idle your 358 mb wow that is extremely high

also i have been going on your twitter and this site and it has not been updated in years especially twitter makes it seem like program is obsolete. i really like the program but you

need to update your communication with the user and please bring that memory down to high especially for a cloud program.

What Operating System & what version of Immunet are you currently using? I just checked my copy of Immunet and it shows about 52 megs of RAM being used at the moment.

Of course when Immunet is looking for updates or if you're running a scan that will cause the RAM usage to increase, that's to be expected. The increase should be temporary.

I have nothing to do with the Twitter account so I can't comment on that but "this site" has been updated. We now use the more secure HTTPS encryption protocols and the main theme for the site has also been changed from the older theme.

If you enable the ClamAV engine, your memory consumption will rise dramatically. I'm not currently logged in to a Windows machine, so I can't doublecheck my RAM consumption, but mine is never that high at idle - and I have the ClamAV engine enabled with numerous custom databases added manually to improve detection rates. The only time it rises that high (and higher) is when actually scanning lots of things (e.g. performing a scan, or installing a new program).

I had a quick look at task manager on my Windows PC a bit earlier. Immunet was using about 40-80MB - but it gradually rose to about 350MB while I was observing it. The PC was seemingly idle. However I looked at the "Windows update" dialogue, and it was performing an update in the background, so I think the memory spike was due to Immunet's realtime guard scanning lots of files.

The above was measured with blocking mode on and all scanning engines enabled. I suspect that if you disable ClamAV and rely solely on the cloud engines (Ethos and Spero), your memory and CPU usage will decrease significantly - probably down to the tens of megabytes range. I rely on the ClamAV engine as I have an extensive set of custom signatures, so I leave it enabled. If you are always online, then the cloud engines alone will probably provide you adequate protection.

Immunet's 7.0.0.11362's memory usage on my Win7 laptop is presently 59mb. I do not use Clam.  Instead I use HitmanPro (HMP), which is strictly on-demand, using zero RAM & CPU except when actually doing a scan. HMP's sigs & heuristics are totally cloud-based (zero RAM usage). I'm not plugging HMP -- there are several such on-demand scanners that are quite good. I am simply explaining why I disabled Clam. YMMV -- to each his (or her) own.
