VMWare probe consumines almost 100% of CPU


Article ID: 187883

DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)


The vmware probe is consuming almost 100% of CPU at the system it is deployed to. 
If the probe is stopped, the CPU usage is less than 5%. When the probe re-starts, it becomes about 98%.


The memory allocation for the probe is too low forcing it to use more CPU resources. 


Release : 8.51, 9.x, 20.x

Component : UIM - VMWARE


Increase the memory allocation.
This can be done via Raw Configure.
If it is still at the default which is:
    options = -Xms128m -Xmx2048m -Duser.language=en
then double it to:
    options = -Xms256m -Xmx4096m -Duser.language=en
