CPU 100 % usaged by VPXD process

Recently we have observed that vpxd is causing cpu hike @100 % after starting web management services ?

how can we dig more into this identify the culprit ?

What if we do not start management web services ?

Please advise best practice to be followed  to resolve this issue...

It's a bug, discuss with VMware Support.

Task Manager, Performance Monitor in the OS, will show you the CPU and Memory metrics.

Looks like you will need to do daily re boots, or update the vCenter Server software.

We are currently having issues with this, I assume this is a Windows Server...

It occurs, after many hours of uptime for us, and we have to kill all the services and restart the services.

We suspect a memory leak or bug, as we've seen very high CPU and Memory usage also.

Restart your vCenter Server for WIndows daily or weekly, or I would recommend, applying the latest update for vCenter Server.

 and  for Reboot we already scheduled in each weekend.but still having the same issue due to cpu hike caused by vpxd..and

it comes to 100% after we start management web services ?

What could be impact if we do not start Management Web Service on VC?
