vadx mp-main process consume 100% cpu

I am evaluating VADX with trial version.

Virtual ADX>show license
Index Package Name         Serial Number   License Type Status     Licens Period   Bandwidth
0     VADX-LIC-DEV                         normal       active     unlimited       1 Mbps   
1     VADX-LIC-3G                          trial       active     60 days              3 Gbps

The problem is high CPU usage mp-main process (99% - 100%)
  PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+COMMAND

 2218 root       5 -15  778m 248m  75m S 99.6 12.3  83:18.33 mp-main

Could anyone help me to solve this problem?

Re: vadx mp-main process consume 100% cpu

Dear

I would like to add some more informtion.

I am using VirtualADX trial version (SSR03000ESX.ova) and allocated 4 cores CPU and 2G Memory.

No matter how many vCPU allocated to the VADX virtual server, only CPU0 is used and got 100% CPU usage and remaining CPUs are almost idle.

Cpu0  :100.0%us,  0.0%sy,  0.0%ni,  0.0%id,  0.0%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.0%si,  0.0%st
Cpu1  :  0.0%us,  0.0%sy,  0.0%ni,100.0%id,  0.0%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.0%si,  0.0%st
Cpu2  :  0.0%us,  0.0%sy,  0.0%ni,100.0%id,  0.0%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.0%si,  0.0%st
Cpu3  :  0.0%us,  0.0%sy,  0.0%ni,100.0%id,  0.0%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.0%si,  0.0%st

And the CPU is mostly consumed by mp-main process of VADX.

PID USER PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM  TIME+   COMMAND
2231 root     5  -15  778m 248m  75m S   100.1      12.3     15:39.51  mp-main 

 The cpu usage in host itself is very much fluctuating from 0 to 4,000 Mhrz

Is it normal or am I missing some configuration?

Please help me.

Hi,

This behavior is expected as vADX uses one CPU to poll continously to check if any packets are ready for rx or tx.
