ENS 10.6/10.5.4 - McShield - Average Memory Usage?

We've been told by McAfee Support that the expected memory usage for MCSHIELD.EXE in ENS 10.5.4 (HF1) and ENS 10.6 should be no more than 75MB. We're seeing around 200-250MB utilization on all of our machines running ENS.

 

VSE would typically take up around 100MB in our environment. We run a lot of virtual servers in our environment with annoyingly very low allocated RAM, so obviously with this expected increase of 150MB - we need to rule out a "fault" as being the cause.

 

I've assigned blank policies to some of the machines which are testing ENS, but the memory usage remains around the 200MB figure. We're running Agent 5.5.0.447 in our environment.

 

Could anybody else confirm the memory usage they're seeing in their environments?

Is the estimate of 75MB optimistic or realistic?

Hey,

around 250MB. I am on ENS 10.6 but I am giving quite a few AP rules to the clients (around 350).

Greetings,

Alex.

That is a lot of AP rules!  Have you thought about moving to Expert Rules?  I bet you could shrink that number and get a lot more valuable data.

I do see similar memory usage 250MB Memory used by the mcshield.exe. Only threat prevention module is enabled. Firewall/Web Component are disabled on the endpoint.
