I am running Kaspersky Internet Security 188.8.131.524b on Big Sur 11.2.1 (m1) and have noticed that process kavd appears to consume more memory over a short period of time in one day. Attached are a few Activity Monitor screenshots, 255mb at startup. Note, I attempted to trigger this problem faster by issuing database update requests multiple times and performing a full file scan. The process reached over 800mb when scan started, reached well over 1gb, then freed up some memory when complete, to 964mb. Is 1gb of memory consumption considered normal?
