    Default High Memory Usage

    My memory usage jumped sometime today triggering warning emails. I have no idea why or what caused it. Is there a way to find out what is consuming the memory? It's at 83.2%. Thanks

    Are you using IDS?

    You may want to check the chart here: https://wiki.untangle.com/index.php/...#Configuration

    It's pretty accurate, RAM consumption varies based on load, and IDS in particular is very hard on it.

    That's a good one to check also because you can know exactly how much RAM IPS is using.

    I am not using IPS and haven't changed anything in about a year. It's still oretty much the default setup. I did notice both Virus Blocker and Virus Blocker Lite are active. Problem?

    It can be, a lot can change in a year. Configuration changes might be necessary given growth or changes in traffic patterns. You need more RAM for more throughput as well. For my part, I don't see a whole lot of value in Virus Blocker Lite. I use Web filter's malware category and back that up with Virus Blocker, they both contain cloud reactive elements, and are vastly more capable and efficient. So killing AV blocker Lite is a great way to free RAM quickly if that's what you'd like to do.

    Technically yes...

    Memory Technology DDR3L 1600 MHz non-ECC
    Memory Capacity Up to 8 GB

    But honestly, if you need more than 2gb on that device I'd be considering another device. I only use that thing in home environments.

    Thanks. Mine is at home. Plus, my son is getting his own place and I suspect his gaming is the load on my resources.

    Just turn off Virus Blocker Lite and move on then. The module provides little value if you have the home sub running everything else.

    I use 4G ram at home. Ram is a cheap solution.
