Processes using high amounts of CPU and RAM
Posted on 2007-08-07
So we have McAfee AntiVirus Enterprise 8.5 managed by EPO on our network. It's really a great product. The only thing that seems to present a problem is that the Virus Scan Task Manager (VsTskMgr.exe) seems to constantly hover between using 5% and 17% of the CPU and can use upwards to 250MB of RAM. The On-Acess Scanner (McShield.exe) varies widely but can spike using the CPU and RAM as well. The On-Access Scanner acts somewhat like I would expect it to, however it does seem abnormaly CPU intensive at times. However, the Task Manager seems unordinarily active using CPU constantly. Does anyone else have the same problems and does anyone have any advice on tweaking anything to make these processes behave in what I believe should be a more stable manner?
