High Memory usage for Windows Internal Database with WSUS on server 2012

Dwci asked
Last Modified: 2016-05-27
I have recently configured a 2012 Vmware instance to be my WSUS server.  I am noticing that it is not running properly and the CPU and the Memory for the Windows Internal Database are spiking.  Is there some tuning I need to do with the windows internal database to make this function better?  Is there a recommended minimum vCPUs and vMemory for this product?
