We have two servers running Windows Server 2008 R2. When we turn on the WMI monitoring the wmi services on the servers shoots up and remains high, slowing the servers down. The servers have a large number of disks (the only thing that different from our other servers). The wmi service is running normally. I have this tested by running wmimgmt.msc on the servers as well as remotely. Also ran winmgmt /verifyrepository command and the result returned was : WMI repository is consistent. The same result on both servers. What can be causing this? This is not happening on any other servers.
