    Hello all ,

    i install LMD (Linux malware detect) on my dedicated , and when the maldet scan is launched it consume a lot of memory and even if the scan is finished , it still high memory usage until i reboot the server .


    After and during LMD scan :


    root@ete [/etc]# free -m
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 7618 6310 1307 0 803 4190
    -/+ buffers/cache: 1316 6302
    Swap: 9999 0 9999



    After reboot :


    root@ete [~]# free -m
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 7618 1117 6500 0 71 620
    -/+ buffers/cache: 426 7192

    Hello :)

    Please check with the developers or support for this application to determine if there are any settings you can adjust. It's possible the application simply uses excessive memory. It may be a good idea to consider an alternative application.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    For a suggestion on a different possible application, you might consider the following:

    ConfigServer eXploit Scanner (cxs)

    I cannot vouch either way if it will function more reliably than LMD, but ConfigServer is a relatively active company with a support forum you can utilize to ask questions if you run into issues.

    Thanks!
