ESET Endpoint Security eating all my RAM


Recommended Posts

I have a problem with ESET Endpoint Security v8.0.2028.0 memory consumption. Right after startup it uses around 2-3GB of RAM without any reason. I tried disabling startup scan, pausing Firewall and protection without any luck.


This is unacceptable behavior as system becomes unstable and unusable due to high memory consumption. Sometimes the process appears to kill itself and everything is back to normal (using only ~100MB)  just to reach few GBs in minutes.

What is interesting, the process is behaving normally once in a while (even for several hours) but I can't find the pattern there.

I was suspecting a clash with WSL2 so I added the Ubuntu app directory to exclusions but it did not help too.

Please generate an ekrn dump by navigating to adv. setup -> tools -> diagnostics and clicking Create when you notice that ekrn is consuming a lot of memory. When done, collect logs with ESET Log Collector, upload the generated archive to a safe location and drop me a personal message with a download link.
