There are few reasons why cuagent.exe can show high resource consumption:
1. Determine if those agent are used as a dedicated data collectors – if so, you'll might need to add more resources or another data collector (each data collector usually can support 2-3 hosts).
2. Test if the Logon Duration is the cause:
1. Navigate to the key: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Smart-X\ControlUp\Agent”
2. Create the DWORD "EnableLogonDuration" and set it to 0.
3. Restart the agent service.
3. Test if cuagent is not releasing the handle properly:
1. Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Smart-X\ControlUp\Agent\ExclusionRules
2. Add reg key (REG_DWORD) HandleFreeAll = 1.
3.Restart the agent service.
4.Disable AppLoadTime feature from the console and set the following registry key:
try the following: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Smart-X\ControlUp\Agent\AppLoadTime\EnableMeasurement
(REG_DWORD = 0)
5. Try running a "lodctr /r" command on the problematic server and then restart the ControlUp agent.
6. Try to salvage the WMI repository by opening CMD and running the “winmgmt /salvagerepository” command. Then restart the server.
