VMWAre Server 2 High CPU Utilization in Guests
Posted on 2009-07-02
I have 2 VMWare guests (Both Server 2003, 32 bit) that I migrated from VMWare Server Ver 1.0. to VMWare Server 2. These are the only guests running in this server. While host CPU utilization is in single digits (good!) the guests are running 40-70 percent utilization all the time. Even when nothing is running. Worse, when I try to add up all the proccesses' CPU percentages in a VM, I don't come close to what the overall total for that VM. This is with "show processes from all users". I saw an article on the VMWare site about high utilization in inactive machines but it referred to ESX. I'm not running that. Please help.
