high page faults/sec and high context switches/sec on CITRIX server SERVER 2003
Posted on 2010-09-21
We have performanc issues on our CITRIX servers witch run IFIX application.
The symptoms i have are:
It is a SERVER 2003 BARE METAL on a HS21 blade with CITRIX 4.5 installed.
1) very high context switches/sec (209287) on AVG
2) high page faults/sec: +-4000
3) high CPU +80% on AVG.
4) more than 30% CPU is in Privileged Mode CPU
=> I found what to measure but what is the cause? (is it a lack of memory, is it a bug in the application, ..)
