It took me a little time to see what was happening but on both of my laptops there were two cavwp processes and one of them was eating up CPU - over 40% - and a lot of disc activity - very high. On closer inspection I found that this was the scheduled scan which appears to have started two days ago and has been slugging both machines for the last two days. I don’t particularly want to disable the scheduled scan but if it continues to eat up resources like this I won’t have much choice.
Can anyone shed any light on why this is happening. So far as I can see cavwp has had problems using too much resource for years.
This problem has occurred again. I have taken three dumps as requested and currently have them on a Google drive. Please advise the e-mail address to share them with or let me know where I can drop them for you to get at.
In addition, I have just noticed that in procexp there are two processes, one started as monitor the other as scanner and it is the scanner one which is using the CPU. I was about to take a set of dumps through procexp when the CPU usage dropped to only about 20% and then kept dropping to lower still. I’ve taken three dumps through procexp as well, although I could see that it was progressing through files and I’m not sure if the CPU was high at the point I took the dumps.
