Occasionly having Problems with my Sharepoint Server 2003 and SQL 2000. Frequently I'm having problems with high CPU load that reduces the access to the "My Sites"- areas. It's obvious that it's mostly mssearch.exe causing the trouble (but sometimes I see a high sqlserv.exe as well).
I'm running SPS 2003 with SP2 and SQL2000 with SP4. I have applied all patches according to microsoft articles.
Should I rebuild indexes ?

Other solutions ?

Hi,

Have you got the latest Sharepoint Services update applied (January 2007)? This included a fix for a problem relating to higher than expected CPU usage during crawls of the site (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927878/).
The update is described here : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/924881.

If you are still having problems then you can reduce the priority of the search process within the Administration pages. (Are you using Portal Server or just WSS?)
