Eset server security using 100% CPU

Recommended Posts



I have a problem, that sometimes Eset services start using up all CPU. I look at the Eset logs and there is nothing written about anything blocked or scanned. Such occurances happen on randoms days. How do I stop, or find out, what is making eset use all the CPU?

Please install the Windows ADK (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/get-started/adk-install).

When you notice a high CPU utilization by ekrn.exe, enable logging by running the following as an administrator:

wpr -start GeneralProfile -start Minifilter -filemode

After not more than 5 minutes, stop logging by running:
wpr stop EsetPerf.etl


Next collect logs with ESET Log Collector and add EsetPerf.etl to to the generated archive. Then upload the archive to a safe location and drop me a private message with a download link.

Ok, will do.

Also, I don't know if this helps, but once I saw that Eset was using all the CPU, I tried to pause protection, but it gave me a message, that it will not pause, because a threat has just been neutralized.
