Re: 4.0.3 has huge memory and CPU footprint in High Sierra

Network Monitor is independent of the filter. The network filter is installed in the kernel and filters all data packets sent or received according to your rules. Network Monitor, on the other hand, receives connection data and visualizes it. If you want to work without Network Monitor, turn it off...

Re: 4.0.3 has huge memory and CPU footprint in High Sierra

But the other issue, the hang in the graphics driver and the lost memory blocks -- no idea. Sorry. I'm just running out of ideas... In desperation, I turned off LSNM's Network Filter: menu > Stop Network Filter. ... and LSNM has grown to 923MB anyway. Does that usefully narrow the search scope?

Re: 4.0.3 has huge memory and CPU footprint in High Sierra

Do you experience hangs in other apps, especially after wake from sleep?


Chrome hangs while LSNM has it trapped in an alert loop, but nothing else has a noticeable delay when waking from sleep.

Re: 4.0.3 has huge memory and CPU footprint in High Sierra

It grew again, from ~80mb to ~800mb, after/during:
    computer sleep overnight
    external network connectivity outage


It grew again, to 1.72GB, under similar circumstances (not overnight, but several hours asleep).

Re: 4.0.3 has huge memory and CPU footprint in High Sierra

What would be helpful is if you can find out which action causes a sudden increase of memory usage. It grew again, from ~80mb to ~800mb, after/during: computer sleep overnight external network connectivity outage Observation: The following is a new symptom with 4.1, but maybe it's related: when my ...

vmmap again, same process, now grown to 11.99GB: https://pastebin.com/tifXk67b

After that snapshot, I killed the process.

Re: 4.0.3 has huge memory and CPU footprint in High Sierra

And we can try to figure out what could be different on your machine with respect to most others. So: Do you have unusual graphics drivers or graphics hardware? An unusual screen locker, other kernel modules or similar? graphics hardware: unmodified Mac Pro (Late 2013), with an "AMD FirePro D5...

Re: 4.0.3 has huge memory and CPU footprint in High Sierra

Do you keep the list expanded for an extended period of time?


I don't go out of my way to close it, but I also don't open it very often. I know this isn't a very helpful answer. :(

Re: 4.0.3 has huge memory and CPU footprint in High Sierra

As far as I can tell, there must be a problem with your graphics driver. This may not be directly related to your memory issue, but it's impacting responsiveness and performance of your computer. When you look at the file LittleSnitchDaemon.log from your diagnostics report, you'll notice that there...
