The process ECSLOGD.exe is the logging daemon for eCS (eTrust/Enterprise Common Services). This process relies on certain files which can become corrupted, causing the ECSLOGD.exe process to consume an inordinate amount of system resources.
There are two files that can become corrupted. Their names are ecslog.dat and ecslog.idx. They are located in:
C:\Program Files\CA\SharedComponents\eTrust Common Services\Log
Along with becoming corrupted, these data files can also grow to extremely large sizes. It is safe to delete them, however since the system might have these in use, you may need to stop their service. To do so:
You should then be able to delete the files in the eCS log folder.
***During this process, the Enterprise Common Services Log Daemon service might not have started up correctly. In this case, you will need to disable it from starting. To do so:
When your system restarts, you should now be able to delete the files in the eCS log folder.
Ensure that you are running the latest version of the eCS available from the Manual Updates folder in the latest CR.
