I'm running a terminal server with around 50-60 users,and every so often the server will go from > 40% usage to 100%. I took a closer look an it seems every time this happens, a different user or two seem to be caught in a loop and end up using < 30% where the rest of the users only use a maximum of 5%.
The company behind the software we use clame it's due to the servers inadequate hardware (It's a VM system running on a dual - quad core setup) which to me sounds like BS!
I'm fairly new to this level of IT so if I misspoke I apologize. I have no way to prove it but I believe adding more raw hardware power wont do me any good as this to me seems like a bug in their software, and it will suck up as much ( or little) CPU as it's given.
The VM in question has 4 vCPU cores and 12 GB RAM available, and is running Windows Server 2008, 64-bit
Thanks in advance for your help!
