Symantec Endpoint 11.4 CPU and Memory Issues
Posted on 2009-02-20
I purchased and installed Endpoint 11.0 last year. I am running the admin console on my dev machine which is running WIN 2003 until we set up our new server. I have to say EndPoint 11 flat out sucks. About every 30-60 mintues my new QX9650 4G RAM comes to a complete hault for 5 mintues. Non responsive at all. I am lucky to get process to come up thru task manager. I see SemSvc.exe and dbsrv9.exe, and multiple LU~Proxy processes at the top of Mem list and CPU usage is getting pegged 40-50%. What the heck? I am tired of calling Symantec. Has anyone had this problem before and is there a solution or is uninstall the only solution. Sorry for my tirade but this is REALLY BECOMING ANNOYING! I am scared to keep this software and put it on my new SBS server to free up my sanity but then crush our new server.
Only 5 clients
Server and clients ver 11.0.4000.2295
I am fairly sure these issues are dealing with the server running definition updates, Is this type CPU utilization normal?
For what its worth Symantec keeps telling me the reason it is doing this is the virus defintions must be corrupt. OK why are constnatly corrupt every hour? Nice internal db system I guess.
Would running on SQL Server db any better or worse?
Any help while I still have hair would be great!
