ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Linux version consumes /dev/shm

Recommended Posts


I have installed ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Linux version and It seems to consume /dev/shm which makes any chrome/chromium based app malfunction when it tries to write to /dev/shm. Unfortunately restarting eea does not solve this only a reboot. When eea service is enabled it seems to consume shared memory until this is full, causing chrome apps malfunctions as they are using this type of memory.

This problem does not happens with the version.

SO Information:

5.10.0-6-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.28-1 (2021-04-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Thanks by your time.

This happens for me too, on kernel 5.11

/dev/shm memory that is consumed is never released.

No problem when I switch to kernel 5.8
