I am currently looking at an issue where the Enterprise Vault converters take a high percentage of CPU. On my run of the mill reproduction box, which is a single processor VMWare image, EVConverterSandbox runs at 100% CPU, when I observe it in :
* Task Manager
* Performance Monitor
Now here is the interesting thing. On a dual processor machine, it is different :
In Task Manager I see 50% CPU for EVConverterSandbox
In Perfmon I see 100% CPU for EVConverterSandbox.
Pushing this out further, on a 4x4 server (4 quad core processors), the maximum for any process is just 6.25% CPU. Something to watch out for, especially when you’re browsing for “high” CPU usage processes…
I’m not sure this is common across all machines, or just my virtual machines – but it’s definitely something to watch out for !
