High CPU Utilization
I am seeing an extremely high usage on my CPU in burpsuite. I am also seeing the RAM consumption go up to 16-17GB in a session. I am in the middle of a test of an API for a client. I can kill burp and then reload it. Then it is okay for about 15-20 minutes before returning to high usage. Let me know what you need to determine what might be causing this issue.
Extensions in Use:
Error Message Checks
NGINX Alias Traversal
Scan Check Builder
JSON Web Tokens
Freddy, Deserialization Bug Finder
Backslash Powered Scanner
I have noticed that if I disable the the default live passive crawl and live audit, then I am not seeing the same issues with high CPU and RAM usage.
Nate, do you have performance feedback enabled (User options > Misc > Performance feedback)? If so, could you provide us with your diagnostics (Help > Diagnostics)?
Thanks Nate. We’ll investigate and let you know when we’ve made some progress.
Nate, could you check whether you are still experiencing issues with the latest version of Burp (2.0.25beta)?
It would also be really useful for us if you could disable all your Extensions when you’re trying this.
