First... I have always been under the impression that if CPU Utilization is running a constant 20-30% or higher that you have a problem. I have been told that processes could spike to 80 or even 90% but as long as they drop back to zero really quick it isn't a problem. So what have others heard about when a constant CPU utilization is a problem as far as percent?
We are having some Excel problems and all the spreadsheets are on the server. It is like some sort of speed issue. On the Server the System (NT Kernel & System) process is always bouncing between 5 and 20%. The average being maybe 10%. This is constant. Never goes to zero. Isn't that a problem?
