Summary

The processor utilization has increased to 95 percent over three hours. If you have multiple processors, the total utilization of all processors has exceeded the threshold. This is calculated by measuring the time that the idle thread is active in the sample interval and subtracting that time from the interval duration. Any sustained activity over 80 percent should be investigated. This condition increases unless it is resolved or until the amount of activity on the computer decreases. If this threshold is consistently exceeded, overall performance of the computer suffers.

Causes

The percent processor time can exceed the threshold because of insufficient processing capacity for the current load.

Resolutions

To resolve this problem and lower the percentage of processor utilization:

  • Add an additional processor.

  • Upgrade to a faster processor.

  • Reduce the server load by moving processes to another computer. Offload server roles, such as distribution points and management points to dedicated servers. If SQL Server and Configuration Manager 2007 are on the same computer, consider moving the Configuration Manager site database to a remote server.

  • Verify that it is not a multiprocessor computer. On multiprocessor computers, the percent CPU utilization is the sum of processing on all processors. If either processor individually is utilized less than 95 percent, no further action is required.
