Collect Server Performance Data is taking a long time

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Jan-Olov Eriksson, Mar 15, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    Does anyone know why the "Collect Server Performance Data"-task would
    take extremely long time to finnish?

    It seems that it's almost always running on my SBS-server. Like as if it
    didn't have time to finnish up before it's scheduled to run the next time.

    Would large eventlogs make it slow to finish up for instance?

    Regards,
    J-O

  2. Hi Jan-Olov,

    Thank you for posting in the SBS newsgroup.

    Please check the Scheduled Tasks log for more info.

    1. Open Scheduled Tasks.
    2. Click Advanced menu and click View Log.
    3. Please check whether all mssbsssr.exe terminated abnormally.

    You can also open the properties of the "Collect Server Performance Data"
    task, change it to a longer time:

    1. Open Collect Server Performance Data Properties.
    2. Click Schedule tab and click Advanced.
    3. Change to "Repeat task every 2 hours" and click OK.
    4. Click Settings tab and change to "Stop the task if it runs for 2 hours 0
    minutes."
    5. Test the issue again.

    Based on my knowledge, the mssbsssr.exe will not only check the Event Logs,
    but also modify the SBS monitoring database. If the result of the
    monitoring is not correct and the mssbsssr.exe took high CPU or Memory
    usage, I recommend you to reinstall SBS Monitoring component. If the
    scheduled task always terminated unexpectedly, I also recommend you to try
    these steps.

    To do so:

    - Uninstall the SBS Monitoring component

    1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
    2. Select Windows Small Business Server 2003 and then click Change/Remove.
    The Setup Wizard appears.
    3. Click Next to start the wizard.
    4. On the Windows Configuration page, click Next.
    5. On the Component Selection page, in the Action column, change Server
    Tools to Maintenance, change Monitoring component to Remove, and then click
    Next.
    6. On the Component Summary page, click Next.
    7. Click Finish.

    - Uninstall Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (SBSMONITORING)

    In Add or Remove Programs, select Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine
    (SBSMONITORING) and then click Remove. A dialog box appears. To confirm
    that you want to remove, click Yes.

    - Delete Registry Keys

    1. Delete
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\Monitoring
    2. Delete
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\SBSMONITORING

    - Delete IIS Virtual Directory

    1. Open IIS, expand servername, Web Sites, Default Web Site
    2. Delete Monitoring

    - Rename Folders

    1. Rename C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$SBSMONITORING to
    MSSQL$SBSMONITORING.OLD
    2. Rename c:\inetpub\monitoring to monitoring.old

    - Install the Monitoring component

    1. In Add or Remove Programs, select Windows Small Business Server 2003 and
    then click Change/Remove. The Setup Wizard appears.
    2. Click Next.
    3. On the Windows Configuration page, click Next.
    4. On the Component Selection page, in the Action column, change Server
    Tools to Maintenance, change Monitoring component to Install, and then
    click Next.
    5. On the Logon Information page, click Next.
    6. On the Component Summary page, click Next.
    7. Click Finish.

    I hope the above info helps.
