Sophos Firewall: v19.0 MR1: Feedback and experiences

Parents
  • It seems to be using a lot less RAM. Been running 3.5 hours and averaging 67% RAM usage. Usage goes up over time, so it may settle in at a higher average, but v18.5 was using about 75% on average and v19 GA was using about 80% on average, for me.

    Had a crash of v19 GA this afternoon where the blue (storage) light blinks like crazy and I slowly lose capabilities until the AP goes orange, etc and have to reboot. (This has happened maybe once a month for me, maybe once every two months.) Hopefully fixed in v19 MR1.

  • Just checked my machine. Before upgrading memory was stable around 70%, since the upgrade it climbed to now being 78%

    I'll keep monitoring this.
