McAfee 100% utilization on processor 0
We have a Netware 6.5 server with SP5 applied running on a HP Proliant ML
530 dual Xeon P4 2.8GHz with 5Gb RAM.
The server is running OK until MacAfee virus scan is running. Then the
processor 0 continually stays on 100% utilization. Processor 1 stays very
low on 1 to 10 % utilization. The high utilization is also caused by
afptcp, but without McAfee running, afptcp causes almost no trouble but
does also takes 100% from the first processor. In combination with MacAfee
the server is responding very slow.
The questions are:
1) Is it possible to load MacAfee on the second processor or to balance
the load on the two processors? The configuration of MacAfee suggests that
it is possible, but it doesn’t work.
2) Is it possible to load afpcp on the second processor or to balance the
load on the two processors?
3) Is there a better antivirus tool for a netwareserver? We tried Norton,
but that one was also slowing down the server to much.
