MsMpEng.exe utilizing more CPU when am triying to establish manny connections with particular ports on server. RRS feed

  • Question

  • A very strange behavior observed, and i am not able to understand the reason for this at this point

    I have a service installed on win 20016 Server, this service listens on particular port. To check the performance of this service i am making Manny connections remotely to this service (TCP connection), after connection there is continuous data exchanged on this remote connection . Its observed that as number of connections goes on increasing, the CPU utilization of MsMpEng.exe goes on increasing. 

    Please help me with knowing the reason for this.
