since last week we experience that vpxd.exe is consuming lot of memory (actualy 58GB). Restart of vcenter service solved it for few days, but here it is again:
Any similar experience? We are going to update it to 5.5u3a to see if it persist...
I had a similar experience that turned out to be a third party solution (EMC Networker VBA) that was logging in and out of vCenter multiple times a second. You may need to open a support case to see if something like that is going on.
We are seeing vpxd.exe grow to 54Gb in less than 12 hours - (vCenter 5.5 2183111) - was there a VMware doc / release note for Update3 documenting the issue and how its fixed in Update 3?
We are looking to upgrade to the latest 5.5 Update 3 to resolve this - especially if it is documented.
(I have an open VMware support case 16193809707 on this)
I found this reference:
Refresh of tenant certificates and credentials might result in memory leak
During periodic refresh of the tenant certificates and credentials, the vmdird opens handles to the registry keyHKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\VMwareDirectoryService but these handles are never closed thereby resulting in a memory leak.
This issue is resolved in this release.
Will be recommending we apply latest 5.5 Update3 and report back
