Cortex XDR Local Analysis Worker high memory usage.

L3 Networker


After upgrading Cortex XDR agent to version , one of our servers suffer massive memory usage by multiple Cortex XDR Local Analysis Worker processes (8x2GB=16GB RAM).  After restarting the Cortex agent, memory is freed for a while, but the problem comes back again. The server is Windows Server 2016 (10.0.14393) – could you help me with this please?

Hi @Piotr_Kowalczyk ,

I haven't heard yet that this version has this issue. May be some executables are running due to which you are seeing it.For further verification, I would recommend opening a case with Support.
