Hi All,


i am running the DFM 5.1 version and the dfmmonitor service utilizes 100% cpu usage and which causing VM to be slow. even after adding more cpu resource, it is still the same.


can anyone help me how bring down dfmmonitor service utilization? what is the reason it is causing to be? any help will be appreciated.





we noticed the same behaviour with 40+ filers in the DFM.

After a month, the DFM processes where using all available cpu ressources.


Restarting the service fixed it for a while.


Try to update it to the latest version (5.2.2)
