DPM 2019 crashes almost every night with 100% cpu RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have two DPM 2019 servers with sql on another server. Backups are running without problems on both servers. But one of the servers crashes almost every night and I cannot connect to windows too because the server uses 100% cpu.

    I have dpm error logs with .crash extension after each crash.

    Can someone help with that issue and read the .crash files.

  • Hi,

    How much resources you have assigned to your DPM server? To me it sounds like a resource crunch issue on the DPM server. Since it is crashing every night, it might be related to the pruning job (runs at midnight daily) where it prunes the recovery points and purge other information in the DPMDB. Hence it makes me think that DPM resources are not enough to carry out this operation. 

    Try to disable the pruning job for 2-3 days and check if it helps. Afterwards you can enable it back to make sure RPs are pruned as per the retention range.

    Run below sql query against the DPMDB and it will give you the SQL Schedule ID. Open SSMS and enumerate SQL Agent and find the same schedule figured from below query and disable it. 

    SELECT SCH.ScheduleId, SCH.JobDefinitionId, jd.CreationTime
    FROM tbl_JM_JobDefinition JD
    JOIN tbl_SCH_ScheduleDefinition SCH
        ON JD.JobDefinitionId = SCH.JobDefinitionId
    WHERE JD.Type = '282faac6-e3cb-4015-8c6d-4276fcca11d4'
    AND JD.IsDeleted = 0
    AND SCH.IsDeleted = 0

    Try this step and let me know the outcome. Thanks.
