CPU and Memory Usage alert in SCOM 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    We have an alerting system for high CPU and Memory in SCOM 2012 R2. Whenever the CPU hit 95% and memory hits 90% we get the alerts.

    Is there a way I can find out what causing high usage and get the details of it in those alerts for all versions of Windows OS?

    If anyone can tell me the process of it I would really appreciate it.

    Regards,

    SamiKhanwwk

  • Hello,

    Checkout the past trend and see if the spikes are periodic on a specific time, may be you can logon to the server on the said timings and check which process is causing this issue

    You can also try this MP which gives top 5 processes in alert description

  • Hello,

    In addition, total CPU Utilization Percentage monitor in the Windows Server 2012 management pack automatically runs a diagnostic which lists the top CPU consuming processes which occurred to cause the threshold to be crossed.
