KACE Agent high memory usage
I noticed today that on one my virtual 2003 servers the kagent service , KBOXSMMPService.exe, was rockin 71mb of memory in the task list. My personal windows 7 computer is only using a 10th of that as is most other computers on my network. Whats with this 70mb thing? This server is hardly doing anything.
Perhaps what my real question is, is this a random, isolated occurance or should I expect to see this kinda of thing happen all the time?
I would look into upgrading your box - as the newest Agent 5.3.53177 the process is AMPagent.exe and runs under the Dell Kace Agent/AMP Agent service name . So you def have an older version. I've noticed an extremely high increase in performance and reliability with the latest agent. Machines will inventory as fast as 15-20 seconds most of the time. Sweet!
What version of the agent are you running? Is the 2003 server a replication share? Is the memory usage high all the time? If it is only at certain points in time is the kbox running any jobs on the server for example scripts, managed installs, Kbox inventory, Software metering, etc. Is the memory usage still high after a reboot of the server?
