fscxfenced - DeepGuard's background process eating too much RAM

66f2e490 Posts: 34 Enthusiast

Good day,

noticed that after upgrading to SAFE 18.4, when the uptime of the computer is more than one day, fscxfenced uses about 1GB of memory.

Is this a normal memory usage or a memory leak? Thanks in advance.

    Hi @66f2e490 @bobbyw

    Thank you for your post.

    We are aware of this issue. The issue will be fixed in the next version.

    However, a current workaround is to restart the machine or kill the fscxfenced.

    The fscxfenced will restart automatically after killing it.

    Thank you and stay safe.

    My Mac just updated to 18.4 last night. I noticed today fscxfenced is using 9.65 GB of ram.
