I'm running a Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition Server with 2 quad core processors and 16 gp ram. The core function of this server is running sql 2005. This is a relatively new server and while benchmarking I noticed that the interrupts/sec on processor 0 are consistently over 1000/sec. Processors 1-7 average less than 100/sec.
How can I tell if this is normal or if there is a problem with a hardware device? Also, is there some way to spread interrupts over multiple processors if it is normal to see this behavior. Any guidance would be appreciated.
