high cpu dbsrv10

I have SLES 11 with an External Sybase DB

I see each 5 minutes , a high cpu usage of dbsrv10 for about 30 seconds.

There are 2 zcm 11 primaries talking to this external sybase.
All is vmware esXi , 8GB memory/1vCPU

Is this a normal behavior or not?

Re: high cpu dbsrv10

Sounds normal to me. Sounds like the servers are handling role-ups. YOu
could look in the service-messages.log or loader-messages and try to
coorilate any events.

Re: high cpu dbsrv10

I don't see recurring tasks on the log files (on primary servers) at the moment the cpu of the dbsrv10 hit the 99-100%.
So i can't explain it.

Re: high cpu dbsrv10

How Many Devices?
How Large is the DB?
Are you using Patch? ZRS? or ZAM?

DB: 1,2 GB
devices: 250
Patch management activated (not patching machines yet)
no ZRS or ZAM!

The 1,2 GB is the .db file and the .log file

Re: high cpu dbsrv10

The DB Size looks about right.
I'm aware of an issue where ZRS might cause blips like that but I don't
think patch should do that.


Maybe checking the server logs may show some repeated activity.
No real good ideas, unless maybe something is just not completing and
the logs may show that.

Re: high cpu dbsrv10

Craig,

Is there a log file on the sybase server that i can check?
Because the default log files on the primaries doesn't show anything usefull.
It's all running within ESXi so i see often a red icon , that tell me high cpu on the VM.

Re: high cpu dbsrv10

Just went through something similar. Server was slowing up and more than the occasional 100% figures showing up. Could ping/dns resolve OK and network card looked good. Reboot ZCM/server but things got worse. No agent coms and server at 100%, 80% of the time. ZCM web page OK. Server was going about its business OK but agents were not getting any responses so they were getting very upset.

Contacted VM Supervisor and from the other side and both network cards were reporting 'dead'! Rebooted the VMware environment and all came good - really fast now. Time to change those 'u p' again.
Cheers

Re: high cpu dbsrv10

On Friday i'm going to upgrade our SLES 11 to SLES 11 SP1 for the zcm db's and primaries.
Also the vmware ESXi will be upgraded, so everything will be restarted. Hopefully it will get better.

Regards,

Tristan
