What is normal RAM usage of ESS


Recommended Posts

Another here who is concerned about high RAM usage, particularly ekrn.exe. For me anything above 140 MB is too high, and 200 MB is just ridiculous. My previous security suite totalled around 60MB for all processes. That's enough of Eset for me.

What is ~150-200 MB compared to 8-16 GB of RAM that are typically installed nowadays in machines? Do you really want to slow down the system by the AV continually writing to the disk instead of utilizing a few more MB of RAM ? Note that only the signature database itself has ~45 MB of data.

Hello ea01,

 

that is not much memory for an usual system and it has huge performance impact, but if you think that is too much, please try it with v.10, it has quite huge changes under the hood, which should affect memory consumption really significantly

Apologies for the hijacking but thanks for the replies. 7 year old x86 laptop that unfortunately takes a noticeable performance hit when using ESET SS9 so no choice but to look elsewhere.

You could create a new topic or better contact customer care that should be able to pinpoint the issue. I wonder if you're experiencing performance issues when copying files, browsing the web or doing something else. Knowing if temporarily disabling real-time protection and protocol filtering (in the advanced setup), one at a time, might give us some clues. If you notice performance hit while browsing, could you confirm you don't have too many tabs open?
