Troubleshoot High CPU (Processor) RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a web server that has a processor that runs away (98-100% utilization) about once a week. The server has 20 processors and only one of them does this. When the processor runs away web site performance becomes degraded and monitoring tools show response times increasing.

    If we move the load away the processor drops but when we return the load the processor runs away again. The only solution we have currently is to move the load, reboot the server and move the load back. If we do this we will be good for about a week before the process needs to be done again.

    Does anyone have an idea how we can troubleshoot this issue to see what is causing the processor to run away?

    Thank you,
