Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11 for Linux

Appendix 1. Resource consumption optimization

July 3, 2024

ID 206054

When scanning objects, Kaspersky Endpoint Security uses the processor resources, disk subsystem input/output, and operating system.

To view the resource consumption by the application, execute the following command:

top -bn1|grep kesl

The command must be executed when the system is loaded.

The command output shows the amount of used memory and processor time:

651 root 20 0 3014172 2.302g 154360 S 120.0 30.0 0:32.80 kesl

Column 6 displays the amount of resident memory – 2.302g.

Column 9 displays the percentage of the processor cores usage – 120.0, where each core is represented by 100 percent. Thus, 120% means that one core is fully used, and the other is used at 20%.

If Kaspersky Endpoint Security operation while scanning objects critically slows down the system, the application must be configured to optimize consumption of system resources.
