Appendix 1. Resource consumption optimization
Oct 22, 2023
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 –
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.
