Can't see the link
I'm running 19.4 60628 on a Mac Pro (Intel), with Sonoma 14.1.
Since the update to 19.4, I've been getting frequent lag waiting for response when opening windows, browsing the web, etc. These periods of lag correspond with high CPU usage on the process wscscannermanagerd. This lag was not present on the prior version of F-secure.
If I disable scanning using the F-Secure settings, then normal functionality returns.
I'm not able to use my computer normally unless I disable F-Secure 19.4
Just wanted to add, the lag/beachballing I'm getting with 19.4 60628 on my Intel Mac Pro is NOT occuring on my M1 Macbook Pro. So this may be an issue only with Intel macs.
Release 19.4 beta 2 (build 60787)
We are pleased to announce the availability of a new release of FS Protection for Mac. This update is available for download from My FS Protection and delivery to existing installations will be started later today.
Thanks for the report! We just made a new release available which targets performance and improved handling of unstable network conditions.
Could you please monitor if there any improvements on your Intel machine once FS Protection upgrades to build 60787? We would appreciate if you could share the output of Support Tool app (fsdiag archive with diagnostics) if you are still encountering issues after upgrading to the latest FS Protection beta version.
Could you please share which link are you experiencing troubles with? Thanks.
