RDS hangs once and a while
Posted on 2011-10-21
We've been running a server for months. Hyper-V R2 SP1 is enabled. The server WIndows 2008 R2 SP1 has 32GB RAM, 2x E5530 2.4GHz (2 processors - 16 cores)
Two VM have been installed, a small XP and a RDS WIndows 2008 R2 SP1 server.
16GB are assigned to the RDS VM. 2vCPU, For a reason or another, the process IEXPLORE,EXE *32 seems to take a lot of ressources (CPU) for some users, not all of them. After a certain period of time the server is hanging.
About 20 users are connected to this RDS. THey're using light applications such as Words.
If you have an advice please let me know. I could add another RDS (farm) but I need to make sure the problem is all about ressources (vCPU)
I assigned 4vCPU during the initial configuration of this RDS VM. But it was hanging more often. So I decreased the number of vCPU to two vCPU. For a month it didn't hang at all (it was hanging every 5 tp 7 days with 4vCPU)
