Does anyone know what this executable is and why it is maxing out my CPU on my server? In task manager it is taking up 99% of my CPU if I kill it the server will run fine again until geventmgr.exe starts up again. I have been searching the web trying to find out what this is and I am not having any luck.

Thanks in advance,

Check whether few of your webagents.exe processes are hung. You can take the action by stopping the hung process. This can severely slow down the server. However,theres a possibility that an agent poll overwhelmed the server.

Thanks for your response. Sorry mine is delayed. We have traced the issue to the process geventmgr.exe (global event manager?) If we kill that process, CPU returns to normal until it automatically restarts.
