Process Monitor very slow to apply filter RRS feed

  • Question

  • procmon v3.53 

    64 bit OS W10 latest 

    Lightly loaded laptop ... Process Monitor "exclude RunTimebroker"  takes 7 minutes ( procmon been running less than 2 minutes ) 

    One core fully busy doing the filter.   Core i7 processor not busy ( laptop essentially idle).   SSDs so not a storage issue "Backed by Virtual Memory" ..... 

    In earlier procmons I seem to recall this only taking a second or two...

    doesnt matter what I filter on it all seems to slow down to this time to apply a filter. 

    any ideas?

  • Update :  Switching to "Backed by File"   on c:\ 

    fixes it back to normal fast behaviour i.e. filters are almost immediate 

    this laptop has 16G ram with 8g ram showing as available in task manager ...
