Update on WUA Srvhost.exe, high CPU consumption and memory consumption issue

Update on WUA Srvhost.exe, high CPU consumption and memory consumption issue

  • Comments 45
  • Likes

Wanted to let you all know there is a revised fix now available for the issue related to the srvhost.exe and 100% CPU utilization.    This issue is described in KB916089 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916089/en-us), and the revised fix is currently only available from Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS).  To obtain this revised hotfix contact Microsoft Product Support Services. For a complete list of Microsoft Product Support Services telephone numbers, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support.

 

In addition to this fix, there is also a hotfix available for the issue where the Automatic Updates service may increase memory consumption over time and may eventually become unresponsive. The memory consumption increases quickly if the Automatic Updates detection cycle policy is set to do detection frequently, such as every 2 hours.  This issue is documented in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914810/en-us and the associated hotfix is available from PSS.  This hotfix was not revised.

 

These updates will be available via MU/WU after a complete general-distribution-update package test cycle is completed.  More information on the future availability of these critical updates on the WU/MU sites will posted next week.  

Thanks - Bobbie

  • GIVE US AN UPDATE ON THIS PROBLEM. YOU'VE BEEN ENTIRELY UNRESPONSIVE TO A CRITICAL PATCH MANAGEMENT PROBLEM

  • this is absolutly unprofessional from MS, they shold really give us an Update directliy aprovable in WSUS, for exactly this we use this Tool

    I don't hope that this is the beginning of planned MS-Bugs in WinXP to bring Customers on Vista!

  • Hi,

    any news regarding this case? It's almost half a year that help was promised...

  • Just searching for fixes to svchost running at 100%...

    if you lot aren't aware, more than 12 months later, folk are still having major problems with this - yes, I do hav all the latest updates - inc WSUS3 SP1...

    vista doesn't have problems, but i ain't upgrading my machines to that bag of rubbish.

  • Hello All,

    I was still experiencing this issue as well as of Feb. '08. I was at ver 2.0 SP1 during my last deployment. It seems to have happened only when I approved an unusually high number of patches.

    Has anyone found that this issue occurs when approving a lot of patches, and if so, is there a fix? I have also deployed the latest updates.

    In an attempt to resolve this issue I have just upgraded to WSUS 3.0 SP1 for my March patch deployment.

  • Yes we rolled out WSUS 3.0 and pushed out all available updates at the same time and our workstations are having high cpu issues however ours cycle up to 100% for 2secs and then back to zero. Seems have the group policy setting less than 2hrs also produces this error however we have set it back to 22 hours the max allowed. I have installed all updates and cleared the Software Distribution folder with no luck. Will keep working on it and post back should i find a fix.
