I have 4 message stores on my system with each being about 30 gigs in size. I take one message store offline at at a time to do compaction on it which minimizes having my whole organization offline. We run 7 days a week 24 hours a day.
Problem I am having is that the eseutil is really processor intensive and causes other mailboxes to occasionally not respond and other problems related to eseutil hogging all the time or hard drive or something. When I look at the task manager performance chart I see all 4 of my cpus and it usually shows the last one as having more processing going on while eseutil is running while the others are thier normal minimal usage. So I don't think it is processor problem but not sure of anything.
What can I do to be able to run eseutil and still have my other applications/stores run ?
