Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint Standard (formerly Cb Defense)

Issue/Introduction

  • Sensor using more than 1GB of RAM.
  • Repmgr.exe dump file in the confer directory with "ElevatedMemoryUsage" in the filename.

Environment

  • Endpoint Standard Sensor:¬†All Versions
  • Microsoft Windows : All Supported Versions

Cause

  • System may be extremely busy and the amount of activity is causing the sensor to consume more memory.
  • Some applications may generate a lot of low priority traffic that gets queued to send, but sending is delayed due to the priority being given to more important traffic, causing the low priority queue to continue growing.

Resolution

Issue can be resolved by putting in a bypass rule for the offending application(s) that are inflating the sending queues.

Additional Information

A process dump file for repmgr.exe is created automatically when the process consumes more than 1GB of RAM
