Slow performance and windows services wont load

  • 1.  Slow performance and windows services wont load

    Posted 7 days ago
    I have a fresh install of zenoss core 6.1.2. I used the ova template to install it. It is running in our datacenter with 4 cores and 32 gb Ram.

    The server is performing very slow. I am monitoring a windows server 2012, but if i click on windows services to view them it keeps loading and after a few minutes I cant acces the gui.

    Is this a bug in de latest version?

    Thank you in advance

    It likely isn't an issue with Zenoss itself but with the underlying virtualization infrastructure. There's a lot going on under the hood and Zenoss is sensitive to latency. Is the virtual machine running in an environment shared with other VMs? What's the VM density on the host? Have you checked the VMware metrics for the virtual machine; the host VM Ready stats, host scheduling stats, I/O stats? If you run top in the virtual machine do you see high CPU wait times?

    Also, you should be using the latest release 6.2.1, not 6.1.2. There's been some serious improvements made since that release.
