Issue with vmwareV1.exe in Windows 7 VM - taking up 99% of CPU - All the time...
I have a very strange issues. I run various VMs on a exsi 6.7 server - but one in particular is giving me grief.
All my other VMs (Win 7, Win 10, Linux, etc. - run fine) - but this one has one process (vmwareV1.exe) that is chewing up CPU at a pace I have never seen.
The VM is running a program called TSPlus - which is sort of both an Enhanced RDP server - and gives that machine the ability to run Windows apps in a browser like Chrome. It has its own webserver built in to it.
When I run this VM - give it 5 min - and there is a process that chews up 99% of the CPU constantly - and that process is VMWareV1.exe.
I realize that it has to be something with what is going on with the TSPlus app - but I am trying to find out what this EXE (VMWareV1.exe) is actually doing before I continue trying to pursue the other vendor.
Attached are two screen shots - showing the high cpu utilization on both the VM itself - and on the exsi server (??). There is very little going on this server ( I have 12 VMs running on it - but they are dormant for most of the time) - and it is good sized - 2 x 12 Core Xeon processor (24 CPUs) - and 128 GB of memory... So - it should barely feel this one VM running high on CPU...
Does anyone have any thoughts at to what might be going on? Has anyone else ever encountered anything like this?
