Glasswire seams to have massive memory leak problem when used in conjunction with a VPN. The issue persists even after closing the program, and can only be resolved by restarting the computer or uninstalling the program.
The issue has been happening for quite a while, and I noticed it was Glasswire which was using in excess of 10gb of nonpaged memory and it’s linked to how much is being downloaded. To test this, I tried downloading a game (26 GB). While downloading the game on VPN, the nonpaged pool kept gradually increasing until nearly all my ram was being utilized. (See pictures, the historical graph shows roughly the past 5 minutes, the second image is of poolmon.exe showing GWCD using 7 GB of non-paged memory. This number will continue to rise until my computer crashes). I paused the download, restarted my computer and resumed the download without the VPN running and there was no leak.
And without the VPN on, constant memory usage, no memory leak. GWCD isn’t anywhere near the top of poolmon.:
This is a huge issue and should be resolved. I paid for both Glasswire Elite and my VPN service, I shouldn’t have to decide between privacy and security.
