  • lsass is using too much memory and cpu

    hello

    i have a problem that in my terminal services servers and other servers as well i see that the lsass process is using a lot of memory and cpu for example: 30 and more Mb of memory and up to 18% cpu.

    why does it happens and what can i do to make this process use less of my recourses?

    LSASS has a bad reputation on this point.
    It could be a minor issue, which can be solved by killing the process.
    It will restart automatic after you kill it.

    What is lsass.exe?
    A Microsoft Windows file stored in the c:\windows\system32 or c:\winnt\system32 directory that is short for Local Security Authority Subsystem Service and has the file description: "LSA shell". This file is responsible for how Microsoft Windows handles security and security related policies, authority domain authentication, and Active Directory management on your computer.

          you can't stop this process through Taskmanager:
          "This is a critical system process. task manager cannot end this process."

          when you kill this process forcefully the system shuts down

            You are right about that, sorry.

            We had some issue's with that an a domain controller and solved it applying SP2.
