What is going on with the RAM usage?  Earlier builds were so lean.  Now it is using almost 40meg on my PC, with Defense+ off.

ALso, even though I asked that it only install only the basic firewall, it installed and enable defense +.

It is using 3.3MB for me, with Vista Ultimate, Avast!, etc.  Maybe a reinstall is in order?  What other security packages are you running?  I had installation problems, especially with the effects of some configuration options, but reinstallation and careful selection seems to have cured them.

Latest ver of NAV & Threatfire.  The last 2-3 builds have been heavy.

something wrong.. RAM usage should be a single digit...

pls tell us more about your system config etc. and apps u are using..especially other security apps..

thanks

WinXP 2gb Ram amd 4200 x2
Norton AV
Threatfire
Comodo BoClean

I would uninstall / reinstall, but I have had high memory usage on the last 3 builds.

Without knowing anything, I would guess you might be doomed by the dreaded Norton AV.  Even uninstalling that sucker when I  got it for free was quite a chore.  Are other NAV users having problems?-NAV plus Comodo actually seems like an odd combination.  ???

You're best using the removal tool on the Symantec website,it gets rid off all traces.

Surely Threatfire duplicates much of the protection within the Comodo firewall,a recipe for resource conflicts perhaps?

Does threatfire duplicate a lot of the basic firewall, or defense +?  I only run the basic firewall.

NAV is not leaving my PC.  Runs at about 4meg, and has very good detection.  If anything I will try to remove boclean or threatfire.  Boclean also has "grown" since the old days.

Ok, I closed some programs and waited  a while.  Now it has settled down to about 15meg.  Much better than where it was at before.  Maybe it grows the more you have open?

Memory Usage
« Reply #26 on: November 08, 2007, 11:38:54 PM »
I don't know if you're getting the memory usage data the way I am or if you have some special program to give it to you (please let me know). The way I'm checking is simply doing CTRL-ALT-DEL to bring up Windows Task Manager. The column called 'Mem Usage' shows 3,684 K for cfp.exe. (Of courrse this number is constantly changing, but not by much. In fact, it was 1920 K most of the time). Please correct me if I'm wrong, but does this mean Comodo is using just under 4MB of RAM? Is that good compared to Norton firewall and others? BTW, I like the new version so far--no repeat pop-ups!!!

Memory Usage Pt.II
« Reply #27 on: November 08, 2007, 11:57:51 PM »
I just looked up the process called cmdagent.exe and learned it stands for Comodo Agent Service. The Mem Usage column for that shows 8,304 K. So I guess my combined memory usage is 4MB for cfp.exe plus 8MB for cmdagent.exe = 12 MB. Once again, I don't know if this is high or low, but I don't feel any slow-down on my system. Oh, and just for a comparison, I have another computer right here running version 2.4 of Comodo, and the figure are: cfp.exe=15,764 K  cmdagent=8,424 K. So the cmdagent is approx. the same, but the new RC1 version is about 12,000 K less than v2.4. Sounds good to me.

In older builds it seems like the two modules usually totaled 6-8 meg.  It seems a bit larger now.

At the present time I am running RC1 Firewall only because I have SSM and there would be conflicts. RC1 seems to be great in comparison to 2.4. It seems to remember what you tell it much better. (:CLP)
