SEP Server grinds to a holt every morning

Created: 01 Nov 2011 | 1 comment


So I have notticed between 10:30am - 11:00am recently since upgrading to 12.1 that my SEP server grinds to a holt and because of that my SEPM window on my computer grinds to a holt as well.

I have noticed the 2 proccesses that are causing this issue.

At first its httpd.exe hogging all the CPU then after a while it switches to xdelta3.exe hogging all the CPU

From what I can gather its the SEP Server downloading new difinitions from the Symantec live update server and then applying it to the SEPM.

Now this never used to happen until I upgraded to 12.1 (not that I noticed anyway)

Any thoughts as to why this has just started to happen?

httpd is apache webservice and xdelta is  process for delta creation.

Can you change the LU time and check if it happens?

What is memory consumed?
