Hello! I’m fairly new glasswire user and i have been wondering is glasswires memory usage on my system normal.
I have very few programs open that are using network and still it seems quite high. Atm 750mb when i have chrome open with 9 tabs and nothing else apart from google updater running in the background. If i leave only one tab open it drops to 680mb or so. Is this normal ?
Edit: Running Windows 7 Pro 64bit
Please try upgrading to our latest version we just released today and let me know if that helps.
Uninstalled previous version and installed new one and still it hovers around 600-700mb and i forgot to mention that sometimes when i tab from firewall to graph or so it jumps to 1400mb and stops responding for a 10 or so seconds.
Edit: Btw is there any way to perform completely clean install ? I noticed that glasswire kept my settings even when i uninstalled it first before installing new one .
If you’re not using your history a lot could you try clearing some of it and see if it helps by going to the settings?
Oh i didn’t even notice that “setting” thanks! It dropped down to 80-100mb. Which is still a bit more than i think it should use with only minimum network usage going on, but much much better.!
Edit and it doesn’t freeze on startup or changing tabs anymore
We’re currently rewriting parts of GlassWire to bring down the memory usage significantly but it’s not easy. We hope to have it done in around 30 days but I think I said that once before.
I have an 1250 MB memory usage by GlassWire. I think it’s not normal at
all. It starts after the last update to 1.1.21b. I use Windows 7 Maximum
64 bit. Here is screenshot -
