We have a Windows server 2012 R2 running web-based Sybase SQL & JBoss application. We have experienced very poor response time of the application. We found that the svchost.exe DHCPServer was creating many many files consuming 50-100MB/s. All files under dhcp directory consume 24GB. It seemed to max out the all available disk bandwidth causing the poor performance of the SQL query. It was none of any workstation requesting DHCP request in the LAN segment.
What is the cause? Can it be fixed? Any suggestion?
Thanks in advance, Thomason
