I have similar case where patrol agent is opening up Powershell instances and consuming 95% of memory. Have you had any luck diagnosing?
Unfortunately no , Customer disabled the agent on the server and did not gave the opportunity to troubleshoot further .
We had faced similar type of issue in our environment on a Windows server. We troubleshooted a lot but it didn't work. Below is the workaround to resolve this issue:
- Stop Patrol Agent service and keep it on disable mode.
- Delete the Patrol Agent installation directory.
- Open the regedit and delete the BMC Software or Patrol Agent related folder under KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE.
- Install the Patrol Agent on the other drive.
Hope it helps..
