Summary0003362: havp uses a lot of memory on 2.4.1 CE
DescriptionAfter running 2.4.1 CE several days on a fresh install, with content filtering enabled, havp memory usage is very high.

Numerous processes (around 40) are running for havp/clamav.

Restarting the HTTP proxy frees up around 200mb of memory.

I have not noticed this behaviour on 2.4 or previous versions.
Additional InformationScreenshots from 2.4.1 and 2.2 are added.

Hi Baldy,

it seems to me that this bug is related to the [^] bug.

What do you think?

Thanks a lot

Hi Lo,

It might be related, but I have no issues with the the proxy not returning anything.

The 2.4.1 systems that have this problem are currently running for more than 30 days with AV active in the contentfilter.

I have this problem with Endian Mini 2.4 too. At least I believe that there is something not as it should. Bevore installing this Mini a 2.3 Softappliance with old hardware did the same job with identical configuration and there have never been any performance problems.

Now, I had to disable HAVP cause masses of havp instances filled up the swap partition and caused unusable System and Networkperformance.

Hi Lorenzo,

Due to a different problem (amavis termination due to out of memory) with one of my customers I rechecked their firewall for excess memory usage.

top did not show anything until I sorted on %mem.
Screenshot is attached and shows that the update to havp 0.92 and clamav 0.97 actually fixed nothing.

After just 48 hours ( Friday 1700 to Sunday 1800 )the system is using 73% of its 1GB memory and 23% of the 511MB swap space.

I rebooted the system on Friday 1700 after fixing the swap issue and they are closed during the weekend, so there should be hardly any activity and thus memory usage on the system.

On this system it takes around 8 days for it to run out of memory to a point that amavis gets killed.

Do you want access to the system to check it further ?
