CPU monitor showing high CPU in Policy on ProxySG running SGOS 6.5 after installing a policy


Article ID: 168610

Asset Management Solution ProxySG Software - SGOS


After installing a central policy on a ProxySG running SGOS 6.5, the CPU monitor is showing CPU utilization up to 90% in the policy evaluation.


This issue occurs when there are one or more syntax errors in the policy.  This results in the policy ticket becoming invalid and resulting in a lot of policy re-evaluation causing high CPU utilization. In high-traffic ProxySG deployments, it will stay in this state until the error has been corrected.


This issue has been resolved in SGOS


Correcting the syntax error in the policy will avoid the issue.
