Hello all, We have several SQL Server boxes in our environment. Some clusters, some stand-alone. We recently noticed that the clusters which have been up for a while (a few months) are seeing an unusually high amount of CPU being used by one of the wmiprvse processes. When I say relatively high, I'm saying about 50-60% of one CPU... total CPU usage depends (of course) on how many total CPUs in the system. We are not seeing this on stand alone machines. With the performance data we've been collecting, we can see this value increasing over the past few months. All systems are Windows 2003 Ent x64 R2 SP2 with SQL Server 2005 Ent x64 SP2. Has anyone heard of this before? Any ideas what the problem could be? Thanks.
