Since installing sp6 on one of our branch NW6.5 servers we have been having
problems with high CPU utilization and sluggish perfomance. The server is
used for file and print services and has ZENworks for Desktops installed.
The server will run normally (low cpu utilization) for 2 to 3 days, then I
will get a report from the users that all interaction with the server is
sluggish. When I check on the server it has high cpu utilization, it spends
long stretches at 100% cpu utilization occasionally dropping down to 40 to
50%. A reboot of the server resolves the issue for another 2 to 3 days. I
have tried disabling the McAfee antivirus, and not starting the ZENworks for
Desktop components, but neither of these changes had any affect. How do I
diagnose the cause of the high cpu utilization?

Thank You,

Brad Johnson
