    EtwB Utilizing ~2GB of RAM


    Hello,

    I am experiencing an issue on my laptop where the Event Tracking for Windows (EtwB) is utilizing an excessive amount of memory. I have attached screenshots of both task manager's memory usage, task manager's list of running programming sorted by working memory, and a list from poolmon.exe showing the excessive memory usage.

    Running the machine in Safe Mode, this does not occur. I have also disabled all startup programs and restarted, and the problem still exists. I tried disabling my network devices and closing all open programs, and it still shows over 4GB no matter what, with EtwB always being around that amount in poolmon.

    Here are my system specifications:
    MSI GS65 Stealth
    GTX 1070 Max-Q
    Intel Core i7-8750H
    Intel UHD Graphics 630
    16GB DDR4 SODIMM RAM (2x8GB) @ 2667MHz

    Let me know if I can provide anything else to help in figuring this issue out.

    32bit vs 64bit with 2GB of ram


    Also, 64bit Windows runs very slow on 2GB of RAM, we suggest 4GB or better to install 64bit Windows.

    Memory Usage (non-paged pool) etwB

    Hi Thomaz

    etwB is basically the logging that is going on in Windows in the background

    Open the Settings App

    Go to Privacy

    In there you will find a multitude of different logging options that you can turn ofr like:

    'Feedback & Diagnostics' tab and set 'Feedback frequency' as 'Never'

    another is 'Send your device data to Microsoft'

    And many others

    By disabling some of those you should reduce the RAM being used by etwB

    is 2GB RAM enough?


    That old of a PC might not run Windows 10 at all, so you'd better try it first, and worry about ram later.*

    * I too have an old PC here, that accepted Windows 7, x86, but all later OS's refuse to install.

    But on my test PC's, the most ram I have on any of them is 2GB. So YES, Windows 10 will run with just 2GB of RAM.

    Happy Testing!

    *Cool
