SLP processing gone super slow
My SLP processing between two MSDP units has gone slow and I cannot find a cause.
It seemed to start the weekend before last; I noticed my priority SLP processing was still running on Sunday when normally it completes Saturday evening. Since then I've struggled to get SLP processing completed in a timely manner. Even the twice daily tlog processing seems slow.
Both servers look normal from a CPU, IO and memory perspective. There appears to be no hardware errors that I can see and network paths look good. I have checked (and ensured disabled) any form of anti-virus and disk indexing.
I have looked at memory usage; I see in both spoold logs "Current Memory usage exceeds the Info threshold value (current value: 73, allowed value: 70)." I also see on the target node entries in storaged.log "WARNING [0000000006385AF0]: -1: Can not preallocate 2372 cache nodes, will try to replace existing cache nodes."
Even "cancelling" an SLP duplication job takes time (read hours!).
Symantec are looking at this now but I thought I'd throw it out to the community.
Any assistance greatly appreciated.
