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.

Thanks.. what we can do to check for memory leak here..if this is the case ?
 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?

FYI..I have my DB and VC with all services on same Win 2008 VM

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.
