Why the Local Categories service take so much memory ?
It designed to load in memory 30.000.000 categorized websites in order to quickly answers to the proxy about a category from a website.
This why we suggest to use a Statistics Appliance that is in charge of handle this service and store Statistics remotely on a second server.
If i disable this service, does the Web-filtering is still available ?
Yes, again this service is only designed for statistics purpose and for ACLs. If you not use Artica Categories in ACLs, you can safely disable it.
I cannot disable this service to safe memory, why ?
Because you have defined Proxy performances to all features in the Installation Wizard.
- To disable it, Click on “Your Proxy” on the top menu.
- Choose “Performance” under Support & debug section.
- On the Performance level, down to “No category” option and click on “Apply” button.
