As workaround you might try to add memory monitor settings as per: https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article/170255/endpoint-protection-client-fails-to-upda.html

You might use different value

MemoryMonitor = 500 (default 350)
MemoryMonitorFreq = 1 (default 8)
MemoryMonitorRetry = 0 (default 60)

 

If the SepMasterService crashes so often, please use a Frequency of 1-2 hours instead of default 8. the Memory Monitor  of 500 instead of 350.

 

If the SepMasterService keeps crashing even with memory Monitor settings above, follow the workaround described below:
