Issue/Introduction

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%.
 
 

Cause

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

Environment

Release : 8.51, 9.x, 20.x

Component : UIM - VMWARE

Resolution

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