fsgk32 eating CPU

I have a server that's running IBM UniVerse for its backend and I'm expieriencing high CPU ultisation from the fsgk32.exe module.


Killing this process, restores the server back to nomal.


I've put exclusions in for F-S to ignore those folders where the data is being stored but still noghting has changed.


The users also use a web frontend to access the system which is also hosted on this box.


Any ideas?

    Just to clarify, is this an issue for server 9.2 as well?


    I've managed to get the fix from your support team for server 9.0, which is where I've had the issue.

    So far we have received sporadic reports about high CPU consumption from customers using FSAV for Windows Servers version 9.0. Currently all available information seems to indicate that the issue affects mostly customers where multiple file exclusions are defined and the relevant excluded files are accessed frequently by 3rd party software or the underlying operating system itself. We will verify whether the problem manifests in Server Security 9.20 or not. In any case, the fix will be delivered via update channel and I'll post update to this discussion when the update is out.

    I am pleased to report that upgrading the server which was running v9 to 9.2 seems to have resolved the issue as that process is no longer running high.


    I may try removing those exclusions to see whether that's still an issue as Dmitriy is quite correct in my case, as on our server, we did indeed have multiple exclusions on certain folders as this was recommnded by the 3rd-party software supplier that we use for that particular system.


    From what I can see, the FSFix is only for v9 as it's still to be confirmed if this is an issue in v9.2 but as I stated above, so far the upgrade to v9.2 on our server seems to have resolved the problem, even with those exclusions.
