Cmdagent HD usage

I have a question regarding cmdagent and HD usage. I compared the amount that CMDagent reads and writes on my harddrive compared to for example my virusscanner nod32 and cmdagent uses the harddrive about 20% more than the system and my virus.

I cannot understand why that would be necessary especially since I turned off the component monitoring etc plus the logs.

Can I turn something else off? Since my bottleneck is my harddrive it does have a big impact on the overall performance and I will most likely go back to horrible windows firewall soon I’m afraid.

Ty though for an otherwise great firewall. Good job.

Hi brynjolf, welcome to the forums.

Task Manager’s I/O Read Bytes contains the following (according to MS)…

The number of bytes read in input/output operations generated by a process, including file, network, and device I/Os.
So, that includes your network devices, not just DIO (Disk I/O).

If you do decide to drop CFP, then please don’t go back to XP’s Firewall… its worse than useless.

Might try disabling Protocol Analysis in CFP. Sometimes that helps reduce the usage.

Thank you for your help and assistance.
I will give comodo another try and will do the suggestions you gave me, after trying another firewall which made it even worse :wink:

A tip, never get a RAID - Wikipedia all that shines ain’t gold.

Yet again, as one of the many internet users I would like to thank you yet again for having the courage of making the firewall free and earn money out of good will.
