2415865 - 100% CPU usage and performance is very slow shortly after starting ASE


  • There are 4 different ASE servers running on the same machine.
  • 3 of the ASE servers are running with no issues.
  • The configuration is exactly the same as what is running fine on another machine with no issues.
  • The server starts up with no errors.
  • The server does not get any ASE errors once the server is up and all databases are online.
  • The server starts out just fine - sp_who commands return fine.
  • But after no more than 10 minutes, the performance on just an sp_who can take 10 minutes to return.
  • Storage and unix have checked from OS level and they cannot identify any issue from OS - It all looks good.
  • The top command shows the server ramping up to 100% within 10 minutes of the server being up.
  • There are only a couple items running - (Not from users, seem to be automated processes.).
