CPU Utilization


D

Dave Newaj

I am rnning W2K Adv Server with Oracle. Occasionally, the
server will bog down. When I check the CPU usage in Task
Manager, it shows 1 CPU running consistently at 90%+ and
the other 5 CPU at no more than 10%. Is there anything in
Advanced Server that can force a more balanced CPU
utilization?

Look at 'Processes' under Task Manager to see which process or processes
is/are sucking up CPU. If it is one or more of the Oracle processes, then
you should check with the Oracle DBA. The topic of discussion is "Oracle
performance tuning" It was covered in his DBA exam.

The key is what is running in your machine! I can envision a mix that would
produce you stats, and it would be expected. Can a server force a program
that is not written for multi cpu processing to balance its use of cpu?
What types of work can a server distribute to different cpu's? Does MS have
test programs to run to load test a server? Monitoring a known quantity.

You can balance the load with software like Aurema Armtech, you ca
find a demo on the website, www.aurema.com, works fine with oracle,sql
citrix and terminal server. Armtech is bundled with Data senter serve
as a load balancing tool
