We are running ZCM 10.1 on W2k3 with XP SP2 PCs all running the 10.1
agent. Some machines are extremely slow to logon (5 - 10 minutes) and
are also slow in operation. I have noticed on these machines that there
are a huge number (867,000 on one machine) of log files in the \program
files\novell\zenworks\logs\externalstore directory. It appears the
machines are constantly writing log files to this directory. An example
of the log file is below. Also the ZenWorksWindowsService seems to
gobble up memory as well.

Any ideas on what nmay be causing this. A re-image fixes it but I'd
rather know the root cause and fix that.

TIA
