One of our NetWare 6.5 SP5+ servers has been seeing inconsistent high utilization. I cannot see any leaking, or bully modules, via seg, Monitor/Busiest threads or within NRM/modules. There are no backups or restores running. It was happening every Tues/Thurs morning; processor utilization would shoot up to like 95% and stay there, and clients would stop working. The server had to be rebooted to alleviate the high utilization. The utilization issue stopped for a few weeks, and now it's back.

I had asked the LAN Admin to verify that hyperthreading had been disabled within the BIOS. He said he's checked twice, and it is. Does the following screenshot from NRM seem to contradict that? The server is a Proliant ML350 G3 with 4 Gig RAM.

They did just purchase a new ML350 G5/4 Gig ram, which will replace this one using an a-t-w migration in the next month or so.

Thanks - April
