We are currently looking at the new Cockpit monitoring utility in 184.108.40.2063 and it seems like it could be quite useful. The documentation says "it is designed to run continuously in the background so that you can connect to it when needed." However, we are finding that whilst it is running it is causing excessively high CPU usage, spiking at above 85% for short periods of time and triggering it's own alerts. Stopping the Cockpit, causes the processor usage to drop right back down to nearly zero. There is nothing else that can be causing this as the Cockpit is the only connection to dbsrv17.exe and it is this process that is using all the CPU time. Is there something that needs to be changed to allow this to run without maxing out the CPU, or is this just not ready for prime time yet?
Could you tell me the configuration of the machine you are using. How many cores does it have and how much memory? Did you change any of the configuration settings in the cockpit? A clear description of exactly what you are doing to run it would be helpful. Did using a temporary database change anything?
