  1. Guys,

    1 of my 4 servers seems to be going nuts with high cpu usage for no apparent reason, between 55% and 75%.

    Its only really used for data now, but it does run MS SQL.
    Windows Server 2003 - standard edition, SP1
    Xeon 3.2Ghz, 4Gb Ram

    Please check the attached gif, to see the task manager processes tab.
    SLSSASvc.exe seems to be a big culprit. But a google search returns nothing.

    Please help if you can.

    sounds like sombody zombied your server... can you "end process"? does that help? take it off the list of start up programs and restart.

    Sorted! me being an ***** forgot that i installed File System Auditor a while back across the network. Never actually realised that it hammered the resources so much though.
    I just uninstalled it and all is fine, thanks! :)
