CLOSED EAM memory levels in taskmanager

Recommended Posts

Win 10 1809... EAM build 9188

After you do a malware scan for example, how long on average should it take before EAM Protection Service levels come down to the level they were before the scan?

For example this screenshot below is before a scan. During the scan it goes up to around 300MB  but takes quite a while to release the memory.

Are you sure you see only 300 MB - I'm running a custom scan at the moment (not looking inside ZIPS etc though) and Process Hacker shows a2service reaching 750 MB for its 'Private bytes' and about 120-150 MB less for its private working set.  (That's on a W8.1 64 bit machine.)

Not sure who you are talking to Frank, however I have it turned off.

you, stapp :P

as the 33MB is very weird. I can only image such low values are possible when that option is turned ON, as EAM will swap sigs to disk when idle, freeing RAM.

Now it is 233MB  (I blame GT500 and messing with surf protection for that ! )

It drops to low levels quite often.
