NTPerf causing high CPU utilization

  • 1.  NTPerf causing high CPU utilization

    We are running the Nimbus robot on over a hundred servers and on one server the NTPerf process is using about 20% CPU.  Every other server has this process at 1-3%. 

    We can uninstall the Nimbus probe and see it go away, but reinstalling it brings it right back up.  Has anyone else seen anything like this?

    A couple of questions:
    1. Does the probe use a lot of CPU time when all profiles are disabled in the config?
    2. Have you tried adjusting the loglevel to 2 and watching the log?
    3. Have you tried running the Windows Perfmon application on that server to make sure the Perfmon counters are working?  (It could be a problem with a particular counter, which might be hard to find, but you can at least make sure counters in general work.)
