SharePoint Crawl causing 100%CPU usage for one content source RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have a cross publishing site set up, the authoring site is continuously crawled and works fine.

    But whenever publishing site is crawled, the CPU usage shoots up to 100% and the crawl takes a very long time (both full & incremental.)

    I have looked at different possibilities of this cause.

    What is see is that in the crawl log, there are around 13000 success and 3000 warnings. The errors are very minimal.

    The warnings are about broken urls etc.

    Can this be the reason for 100% CPU usage and longer crawl time, just want to check if I am thinking in the right direction, before I go about fixing the warnings.

    Thank you!
