Hi, I have received a query from a system admin about the resources that the ir_agent process is taking being higher than expected. There have been some issues on this machine with connections timing out so the finger is being pointed at the ir_agent process as being a possible contributing factor.
The agent updated to the latest version on the 22nd April and has been running OK as far as I can tell since last July when it was first installed. I would be interested if anyone has received similar concerns within your organisations and specifically relating to agent usage on SQL servers? I would expect the agent might take up slightly more CPU % on such an active server but not to the point of causing any overall impact to system performance? I don’t think there are any settings to control the priority of the agent process?
