    I see two processes wmiprvse#1 ( with avg 1590793 pages/sec ) and smsapm32 (with avg. 265125 pages/sec) in my Performance counters.

    What are these Services? Can I stop these services ?

    They are affecting my SQL server performance.

    Are you running SMS services on teh SQL Server?
    Then you tend to see these counters and it is advised to keep the SQL on a dedicated server and avoid any sharing of resources if the performance is degraded drastically.

    Yes, SMS service is running. The server is a dedicated one.
    I think that sms is a part of Windows component and should be running

    The server is in cluster env. Stopping this service will impact anything ?
