2.4.5 consume a lot more RAM comparing with 2.4.4
I have upgrade pfsense from 2.4.4 to 2.4.5 today.
I noticed that 2.4.5 consume a lot more RAM than 2.4.4
The following image is the dashboard of 2.4.4
And the following is 2.4.5 on the same VM.
On that installation, i only use site to site OpenVPN, and a LAN, a WAN interface.
Is that normal or not?

@quangnd412 I wouldn't sweat it. After all, you paid for 100%. Things change.
Mmm, that does not seem like a problem.
Also, since it had not rebooted for >300 days, there might have been some other change that applied there that might have increased usage in 2.4.4p3 anyway had you rebooted first.
That is one of the reasons why rebooting before upgrading is recommended:
A lot of users will assume an issue was caused by an upgrade that may in fact have been caused simply by rebooting.
@stephenw10 in other installation, i rebooted a week before upgrading, problem is the same.
Ok. And a similar increase in apparent consumption?
Why only 4 GB ? Seems pretty small to me...
I calculate RAM consumption and discover that the previous versions show wrong RAM used percentage. This version add /tmp and /var that I configured to use RAM.
@Kartoff I only use basic firewall function and OpenVPN. That's all :)
Ah, so if you include that the reported values are correct?
@stephenw10 yeap, it is seem to be corrected. All the previous versions may be wrong
