naPrdMgr.exe - High CPU

Am running Mcafee on Win server 2003 with group shield and protection pilot for approx 25 users, am consistently experiencing high CPU usage, around 40-50% from naPrdMgr.exe,  P4 2.8Ghz with 1Gig Ram, Group shied is version 6.0.616.102, any thought on why this is happening?

Thanks

What happens if you restart McAfee service? Otherwise, check the virus logs to see if your network is infected or not. If it did remove (clean) the virus restart service and monitor it again.

Hi,

I have run a google search
http://www.google.co.il/search?q=naPrdMgr.exe+100%25+CPU&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

One result seems to be the answer to your problem which you can find here:
http://www.duxcw.com/yabbse/index.php?board=7;action=display;threadid=13951

I don't think you are going to like the answer he received (though i didn't read more than this):
As it is a McAfee process, it will consume 100% CPU for the purpose of scanning files.

You may remove the Orchestrator, to reduce the CPU usage.
Or else, look out for some options that stops "Scanning-Checking the files instantly as they are accessed."


If you ask me, there is no antivirus like NOD32. Recently it has been declared the best antivirus of the year 2006. It is the fastest one - which answer your problem

phil456,

You need to upgrade groupshield to the latest version and patch level.

To download and install the latest GroupShield Upgrade:
Go to the following website: https://secure.nai.com/us/forms/downloads/upgrades/login.asp.
Log in using a valid grant number.
Locate the McAfee GroupShield for Mail Servers section.
Click View available downloads.
Click GroupShield 6.0.2 for Microsoft Exchange 2000/2003.
Click I Agree to accept the license agreement.
Click GSE602L_en.zip and save it to the desired location.
Follow the instructions provided in the README file that is included.

This worked for 3 servers that I had the same issues on.

Dave
