Thread: VSMON consumes more and more memory

    I have used WinMx and Warez p2p - both get to very high memory usage after a night online. Luckily system mechanic's memory optimizer releases the memory on the first pass

    Nonsense. If ZoneAlarm Pro is using more memory than the system can handle, then ZoneAlarm Pro is the one with the problem. I have to close ZAP to run Shareaza, or else I run the risk of having vsmon.exe use all my memory. I've used other firewalls with Shareaza, and they do not have the same problem (other problems, sometimes, but not the memory leak problem).

    Scott,

    I dont think we can totally blame ZA, it seems as if its only doing its job by logging activity. I hope you have read my threads above with Hoov, all my problems went away when Comcast changed its Servers, or whatever it was, at the time of the speed increase. I have not had the network activity that was present before and have not had a vsmon problem since.

    So it would seem that it is related to networks,P2P, or whatever else bombards our computers while online. It would seem that ZA needs to limit, or makeuser adjustable,its file size for the vsmon log.

    Just my thoughts, I am a computer hobbyist with moderate knowledge at best.

    Thank You

    i have had almost the same problem just start occurring...i have like 13,000 (THOUSAND) blocked "incoming" attempts in 3 days or something...the customer service guy at my ISP said that it looks like a cookie of some sort is sending out tons of info or emails or something to random sites and the blockage i am seeing is those sites bouncing the info back to me...and then ZA 4.5 blocks it...

    i tried all the scanners you listed in this post and still cant find anything...it is really bugging me...ZA worked fine for over a year for me and now this is really worrying me...

    here are some of the log file:

    now (as i am sure you know) the 217.211.127.252:33225 is where the "attack" is coming from and the 68.101.86.47:32656 is my IP address...so i removed internet access for EVERYTHING hoping i would see the program ask for permission in order to send anything...well the little icon saying a security event occurred keeps popping up yet nothing is asking for access...i really cant figure it out...

    i am running XP Pro and ZA Pro 4.5.538.001i also routinely (as in every 2 days or so) run Adaware, Spybot S&D, and Spyware Blaster...also run AVG daily...i run them all AFTER getting the current updates...another weird event that might or might not be related is that i cant get any of my "System Restores" to work...so when one of the online virus scanners found a worm i decided to turn off then turn back on System Restore to clear it out...but it didnt work after these "attacks" started anyway so i figured it wasnt a big deal...i even downloaded a packet sniffer and blocked the ip that it showed sending (outgoing from my computer)most of those but i still get these...i assume that it has something to do with it since my computer is sitting idle yet this one thing sent 130 or so packets in 5 seconds heh please help!!

    Try removing it. I found that the port you have that is getting hit is related to Kazzaa lite. Once its removed, then recycle your internet connection so you get a new IP address. Then see if this still happens. You may end up having to scrub it from your system.

    What a load of hooey.

    I'm seeing the same behavior from vsmon.exe. ZoneAlarm is consuming more memory as time goes on, seemingly without limit. In programming terms, that's called a resource leak, and it is a bug, plain and simple. There is no valid excuse for that behavior. (It would be different if the memory usage went back down as network usage was reduced, but that is not happening here.)

    I suggest that everyone who experiences this memory leak contact Zone Labs about it. There is a good chance that the leak is very slow on systems that don't use the net very much, so they might not be aware that it's a real problem for the rest of us.

    Helloz i'm new herei've been reading a lot of threads in many formus about the problem between ZA and p2p clients, yet i have no idea what's happening about this issue.from personal experience, i tested shareaza and emule, and both have the same problem with the memory usage, but when i used azureus for BT, it worked fine, no high memory usage, only the "normal" from the java vm, so i think that maybe is something with the gnutella1/2 and ed2k network the problemi'm using zapro beta 5.5.035, and i have configured the firewall properly (well at leastshareaza works perfect with my config:P:P:P)OS: w2k sp4and roughly my pc is a barton 3200 with 512mb ddr400pd: i'll try mldonkey for win32, because it uses so many networks that i can try to test zapro in one of them at time without having to download a client for each type of network :Pif anyone knows or someone wants to help me with the tests, any mails are welcome =)byez
