I installed 3 SLES 10 SP1 servers with OES 2 add-on. Two of the servers are For GroupWise Web Access and third is a File server with NSS volume. They are VMWare guests on three different blades
It seems about every twenty minutes they ALL have a three minute peak of 100% utilization then it drops to 2% or so. It cycles like this roughly every 20 minutes. I run the top command and sure enough it is the smdrd process causing all of the problems. This is problematic because it causes Web Access to run out of threads and I have to reload Groupwise. Has anyone else seen this behavior?Right now I have smdr unloaded (./novell-smdrd stop) to prevent the problem but I believe it is needed for backups and SLP services
