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

Sorry to correct myself: I just wanted to write down what we've found out. And I found a very similar bug description there. Network Monitor does not deallocate snapshot windows. If you make a snapshot of a window (or probably also if you load one), the window (and its memory) is not freed when you ...

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

Thanks a lot for the new vm statistics! I can see that the old block of 822M from last time is still allocated, but it moved a bit and has grown by ca. 1 MB. It's now allocated side-by-side with CG image blocks, so it must have been allocated by something which creates Core Graphics Images. The larg...

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

Don't know. Maybe let it grow even further and then compare the memory maps to see what was added.

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

Unfortunately, the diagnostics is not too informative. I can see that most of the memory (more than 800 MB) is allocated in one chunk. The chunk is from VM_ALLOCATE. This can be pretty much anything. Assuming that the memory is assigned in sequential order (which is somewhat reasonable), we can draw...

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

The objects we know of account for a couple of megabytes. That's definitely a few orders of magnitude less than the amount of memory reported by Activity Monitor. Can you please open Activity Monitor to find out the Process ID (PID) of Network Monitor and then open a Terminal window and typ vmmap PI...

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

When memory consumption is high, can you please first open Console.app, select your device under "Devices", enter "Snitch Network Monitor" as a search term to reduce the amount of log messages to the relevant ones. Then open a Network Monitor window and hit Cmd-Option-Ctrl-Shift-...

Re: Rules that disappear

Reinstalling the old version, rebooting, etc. is somewhat time consuming, so I understand if you rather want to avoid that. 4.0.6 is the current stable version available at m. You say that the configuration.xpl from the backup cannot be read? Now that's interesting. The file stores all your Little S...

Re: Rules that disappear

Do you have backups of "/Library/Application Support/Objective Development/Little Snitch/configuration.xpl"? If you have, and if you have some spare time, can you please go back to 4.0.6, restore the backup (using Little Snitch Configuration) and check whether the rules are actually there?...

Re: lsd uses 90% CPU all the time

When you encounter the issue the next time, can you please do a

sudo sample 'Little Snitch Daemon'

in a Terminal window (you'll need your admin password) and mail us the output to technical support?

Re: Stop recording browsing history!

I cannot guarantee a timeframe. We would like to see this feature before summer, but if something more important (e.g. reported vulnerabilities or relevant bugs) gets in between, we have to defer it. You'll see new versions in the software update and this particular feature will be listed as "h...

Re: Mac doesn't start after installing Little Snitch 4.0.5

And one more thing: If you booted in recovery mode, the path is not "/Library/Extensions", but rather "/Volumes/name-of-your-harddisk/Library/Extensions". Replace "name-of-your-harddisk" with the appropriate value, of course. If there are spaces in the name, you need to...

Re: Mac doesn't start after installing Little Snitch 4.0.5

@ronakjain90: The "rm -rf Library/Extensions/LittleSnitch.kext" did not do anything because you did not prefix it with "sudo". Only root can delete entries in "/Library/Extensions" and the "-f" option suppresses error messages. And note that you really need to...

Re: Unsigned apps in 4.0.5 and 4.0.6

You CAN configure it. When you double-click a rule in Little Snitch Configuration, you can edit its properties. One of the properties is whether a valid code signatures should be required.

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

We would be glad to fix this, but as long as we use Apple's MapKit, we must live with all of its features. The only workaround is to avoid using MapKit in the first place. You can do this by keeping the map closed (never opening it). The map is allocated the first time it's opened.
