NIS v21 high hd I/O

I have windows 7 x64 and did a fresh install..installed norton internet security from trial from symantec website trial download and installed...did 3 live updates and 2 patches it installed...

Getting high IO disk thrashing with these two:


c:\programdata\norton\0C55C096-0F1D-4F28-AAA2-85EF91126E7\NIS_21.0.2.1\symnetdrv\TrustDB.dat
c:\programdata\norton\0C55C096-0F1D-4F28-AAA2-85EF91126E7\NIS_21.0.2.1\symnetdrv\TrustDB.dat.log

Norton Internet Security 21.0.2.1

3+ million bytes read/write per second

Resource monitor this freezes the computer activities for 10 or more minutes while the hard drive thrashes with these two above files...will little cpu... but high read/writes per second continuously.

Didn't do this with version 20 of NIS with same machine. Thought it was my hard drives, replaced those and installed NIS and same thing...high disk thrashing... I did turn off automatic programs and manually approve or block each program that tries to access the Internet.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

After a fresh install, there can be a lot of disc fragmentation. It is possible that your system is being defragged.

See if this goes away after a day or so.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

No.. this is a continous problem .... defragmention is not an issue... I use 2x1gb drives in RAID 0... and they are brand new... last 2 drives I had had hardware ecc error and unrecoverable sector error...so I swapped them out for new ones... It happend after I updated the 2 patches from liveupdate......

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

If you have the Firewall Advanced Event monitoring on, try disabling it.  you can do so from:

Settings, Network, Smart Firewall, Advanced Settings (configure), Automatic Program Control (configure), then set 'Advanced Event Monitoring to OFF.

Please let us know if that eliminates the excessive disk activity.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

I turned AUTOMATIC PROGRAM CONTROLL off.... then clicked on CONFIGURE in the Advanced Settings under Smart Firewall options. I then clicked on ADVANCED EVENTS MONITORING is ON... 

I want to be able to know what program is accessing the Internet and choice to say yes or no....

I reverted to version 20.4.0.40 .. but know that I will have to update when I do liveupdate....Seems like there is a bug in the patches.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

Hi,

Automatic Program Control and Advanced Events Monitoring are two independent features.

The automatic program control determines whether firewall decisions are made automatically (when enabled) or the user is prompted for the answer (disabled).

Advanced Events Monitoring is a collection of features that monitor and report additional events such as module loads and program launches. these features can be enabled only when Automatic Program control is disabled because they require manual decisions by the user. 

If you wish to control which apps can access the network, you just need to disable Automatic Program Control and leave Advanced Events Monitoring Off (which is the default setting).

Hope this helps, let me know if this fixes the excessive I/O issue.

Upgraded from NIS 20.4.0.40 to 21.1.0.18 and now NIS doing high HDD I/O
Its frezzing up the whole PC.

The offending process is the same other users

Please pass this issue to NIS developers

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

I can confirm this issue if advanced monitoring is enabled. It occurs on all my systems (Windows Vista, Windows 7 x64 and Windows 8.1 x64). The previous Norton Internet Security Version works fine.

I use Norton for many year but this is really disappointing.

Is it planned to fix this issue?

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

Folks, my Lenovo IdeaCenter w/ Intel core i3-2100; 3.1 GHz CPU; 8GB memory and lots of HDD space. This machine has experienced the same reported disk thrashing since October 2013. I have read most all post on this forum relative to the subject of “NIS v21 high HD I/O”.

 

My machine runs Win7 64bit w/ SP1 and latest patches; Internet Explorer version 11.0.9600.16428 w/ update KB2841134. My current Norton Internet Security (NIS) version is 21.1.0.18. I have already run the Microsoft deep virus malware check, MalwareBytes, and Norton Power Eraser along with multiple NIS full scans of all connected disks. The HDD does not need defragmentation since it does auto check weekly. Just to be sure, I ran the check manually on 11/13/2013 and defrag wasn’t needed.  NIS 'Advanced Event Monitoring' is set to OFF.

 

This machine ran without freezing up prior to October. It would be good if Norton Support and their Development Team would create a case/ticket #, do a low-level code deep dive into NIS, and work with us to monitor this issue. Hopefully, it would be resolved and/or Symantec and Norton Internet Security app would be cleared.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

The same problem here. I've had high HD I/O since couple of weeks for no apparent reason.

Interesting thing is that it looks like high HD I/O starts when my PC is idle although Idle Time Optimizer is set to OFF and no scanning schedule is set.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

Hi jcrisler / Viscon:

The high I/O problems being observed by post originator slee2 and others in this thread are caused by an apparent bug in NIS 21.x when users turn ON the Advanced Events Monitoring setting of their Smart Firewall (Settings | Network | Smart Firewall | Advanced Settings | Configure | Automatic Program Control | Configure | Advanced Events Monitoring) .

If your firewall's Advanced Events Monitoring is turned OFF you might want to start a new message so this thread doesn't go off-topic.  I've posted commments here about how you can monitor system idles with the Norton Performance graph and Sysinternal's Process Explorer that might help you identify the process responsible for the high I/O.  The Norton Tasks window (Performance | Norton Tasks) will show you the Last Run time of each of your automated background Norton Tasks (e.g., the Insight Optimizer disk defragmenter) that could be responsible for this high I/O.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

UPDATE

This hdd high activity started even while I was working.

However, when I turned a silent mode on it stopped but after about 20 minutes started again.

Eventually I decided to let it be this way to see what happens.

After about 2 hours of doing nothing on my PC there was no hdd activity and everything has become normal since.

Now no more problems.

Looks like there was some background task NIS decided to run for some reason although I didn't schedule anything in the options.

Anyway the issue is gone for now.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

Hi Viscon,

Just a hunch, could you please flip your Performance and then select Norton Tasks - do any of the taks show time completed close to the time your hdd quit thrashing? I'm really interested in Fully System Scan.

Thanks for checking.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

Hi,

None of the tasks have been reported as ran or completed during abnormal hdd activity.

I set everything to manual and I have no idea what NIS was running on background.

Apparently it "completed" something however....

I'm wondering, as far as I remember hdd trashing occured when I switched from one OS to another in my dual-boot configuration. So something like "external volume modification" could have happened, and NIS got somehow confused about drives volumes. This however is just an assumption...

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

Thanks - I know nothing about dual booting - but I was thnking perhaps it was the auto full system scan, as it has been known to start and stop a few times when the system is coming in and out of idle and then decides it needs to complete and takes over the system (so to speak) running until it finishes, Normally if this occurs we recommend to just let the system sit idle until it does it's thing - whichis what you did to let it work again.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

Hi Basil,

I have two copies of Win 7 Ultimate SP1 64bit on two separate hdd's.

The second one is just for trying updates, hotfixes, new drivers etc. or experimenting with various configurations.

Both have the same NIS2014.

Lately I was trying IE11 + new MS hotfixes on the second hdd (checking if they might cause some issues).

That's when hdd trashing started on both drives when I was switching operating systems.

Hi Basil:

Regarding the original problem posted by slee2 that occurs when Advanced Events Monitoring is turned ON in the NIS 21.x (NIS 2014) Smart Firewall settings, do you know if Symantec is working on a bug fix?  Forum administrator Mohan_G requested diagnostic logs in October 2013 from the following three users who reported a similar problem but there haven't been any updates in those threads since then.

The only workaround I've seen is for users to downgrade to NIS 20.x (NIS 2013) and then set Automatic Download of New Version to OFF (Settings | Computer Updates) to prevent NIS from automatically upgrading back to NIS 21.x .

Hi lmacri,

I'm not sure about the status of this issue, but as an alternative to downgrading the product, you could leave Automatic Program Control disabled so you can continue to manually control network access for applications, but disable Advanced Events Monitoring, as it appears to be the cause of the excessive hd i/o.

Hope this helps in the meantime,

Hi Norton team,

Please also have a look at this topic  NIS.exe continuously writes to disk

Please see the comment from me (abhawasinka) on the second page which contains a image.

I think the issue is not yet resolved completely. The application should use a buffer and write it periodically (longer than 1 seconds) to avoid continous disk I/O.

Re: NIS v21 high hd I/O

What's the status on the patch for this issue?

I was able to successfully reproduce the issue unintentionally with NIS 21.1.0.18. After investigating the disk thrashing using Process Monitor from SysInternals, (and stumbling across this thread) I observed that it was continuously trying to write to C:\ProgramData\Norton\{0C55C096-OF1D-4F28-AAA2-85EF591126E7}\NS_21.1.0.18\symnetdrv\TrustDB.dat

This issue is occurring on a fully patched version of Win 7 x64. After multiple minutes of fighting the machine, I was able to turn off Advanced Events Monitoring in the settings and excessive disk I/O appears to have subsided.

The products are tested thoroughly. Unfortunately, with Windows computers, there are millions of combinations of hardware and software that all have to work together. You could have a unique combination that could be causing your problems.

You say you are still seeing the issue with advanced event monitoring. This could be an issue with some software or hardware driver you have installed that the others here do not. That is why we ask many questions about your system and installed software.

Quite awhile ago I was sure that NIS was causing my PC to BSOD (blue screen of death). After quite a bit of help from Tony_W and online chat support. It was determined my RAM was bad. No problem, I just returned the RAM and got a new set and problem solved. Just had to temporarily use substitute RAM. Everything in my PC was new too. So that made me more adamant that it was NIS.

Actually, the very basic antivirus and firewall is still active.

My underpowered PC is not useable with all that file I/O. I might try slowly turning each of those on in turn to figure out which service precisely is causing that massive file i/o.

Maybe Symantec will fix it, and I can turn everything back on again...

I had a dream that I bought a new Intel Core i7 desktop PC with 16GB RAM and SATA 6 and SSD drives with 64-bit Windows that could handle all this software abuse.

Hi natey2:

Welcome to the Norton forum.

I have an older machine running 32-bit Vista and posted some comments here in Patrick McCabe's thread titled Is Norton Slowing Down My Computer? that might be helpful.  Since you're using NIS v. 21.x the first suggestion (i.e., turn ON Smart Definitions) is not relevant since Smart Definitions are now the only definition set availble in newer versions of NIS.

You confirmed in message # 43 that the Advanced Event Monitoring of your firewall has always been turned OFF, so you might want to start a new thread about your high I/O.  That will give your own problem better exposure and prevent slee2's thread from going off topic.  If you go that route, be sure to post information about your CPU processor speed, amount of RAM, and Internet connection speed so we have a better idea about your system configuration.
