windows 2012 R2 wmiprvse.exe high CPU usage -- URGENT RRS feed

  • Frage

  • We have two Windows 2012 R2 domain controllers hosted on HYPER-V host. However one of the domain controller continuously running with 100% cpu utilization. WMIPRVSE.EXE is consuming more than 50% CPU. I have checked forums and other resources for exact causes and fixes for WMIPRVSE.EXE issue in Windows 2012 R2, but could not find anything.

    Would you please guide me to troubleshoot and fix the issue?

  • wmiprvse is a host process for WMI providers. High CPU usage can be caused by faulty providermodules, applications that use WMI extensively, or combination of both. You can see a list of modules running in the provider host process by starting Resource Monitor, selecting WmiPrvSe process with high utilization, and looking at the modules list. It will show all provider DLLs. There is no simple way of identifying which provider causes high CPU usage. Basically you need to dump WmiPrvSe process' memory and state, and analyze the dump data. Take a look at this article for more info.
