After the hard drive filled up on the server where the Automation Engine and AWI components were located, there is a sever system performance degradation. After freeing up disk space, opening a workflow monitor from Process Monitoring with a filter took 2-4 minutes or timed out completely. There is no noticeable delay in any other area of the AWI.
Search is not impacted, nor any other part of Process Monitoring
Release : 12.2
Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE
A reboot of the server where the automation engine and tomcat server reside resolved this issue.
