Altiris Express service (AXENGINE.EXE) stops followed by application crash or high CPU load. Axengine.log has no record off it. Altiris Express database management service (dbmanager.exe) keeps running. Sometimes there is a socket error before the application crashes in log (when in debug mode).
From AeXEngine.log (Debug)

Since this was an upgrade from old versions & also and upgrade from old database to new, the previous database held some information with the table [eXpress].[dbo].[riloe].
Clear the information present in this table [eXpress].[dbo].[riloe]. After this changes there were no more crashes seen.
