i just noticed, that the CPU load from around 30% jumps to around 70%. And this for the complete time since i installed the update.
Even after a reboot i have the same problem.
I found two hints:
The vAPI Endpoint shows a warning:
Failed to connect to 1da6ff8a-0bfd-4605-b4cc-c18ba520e95b\com.vmware.vcenter.nsxd.vapi vAPI provider.
And when using "top" on the vCenter CLI i have one process with high CPU:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES %CPU %MEM TIME+ S COMMAND
22892 root 20 0 753.5m 85.6m 98.7 0.5 30:11.56 S /usr/lib/vmware-wcp/wcpsvc --port 8920 --logfile /var/log/vmware/wcp/wcpsvc.log --configfile /etc/vmware/wcp/wcpsvc.yaml --audit-+
When i'm searching google for that service i found "Workload Management" this is for "Kubernetis", this i havn't licensed and i havn't NSX-D installed.
I stopped the serivce "Workload Control Plane" and the CPU load goes down.
Has somebody seen this behavior too?
Looks like a bug to me...
I made some additional research, because when the service is stopped some other tasks don't work, like putting a host in maintenance mode.
I noticed only one thing:
Since the update there are no new log entrys written to this file:
Currently i don't want to open a support case and waste one of our "5" free cases for this problem...
I have stored my last successful backup of the VCSA, to revert to 7.0b and skip 7.0c, but i will wait a few days, perhaps someone can help here...
I'm seeing very high CPU now after patching yesterday to 18.104.22.16800 and am investigating but top is showing /usr/lib/vmware-wcp/wcpsvc as being consistently using 90%+ CPU.
But I still have a high CPU python process after stopping the Workload Control Plane service - https://twitter.com/guyrleech/status/1290320296625537024?s=20
I did put a proper internal cert on my vCenter server last week which the web interface and PowerCLI are ok with. This is from /var/log/vmware/pod/pod-console.log.* where there are in excess of 271K log files.
It will be available via the patch portal however I would encourage all with this issue to create an SR so that GSS can keep you up to date on development.
Fair enough, once it's released I will try and remember to post an update here, but also keep an eye on the patch portal. I can't see it being much longer now.
From my end, I did a vCenter rollback to 7.0b (and I regretted not to have taken snapshots for once at that time - too much trust!)
The high CPU and/or the impossibility to use maintenance mode by disabling the service was not practicable.
Waiting the patch, like the others!
I'm searching too, but in the product download, product patches download page i don't find a version "d".
And the server management told me that thare is no new versin too. The update planner the same...
