Server 2012R2, VMware WRSA.exe is spiking my clients CPU usage to 100% at random times of the day.  This has been an ongoing battle and eventually we have to reboot the server.
Not sure where to start on this.

Thanks for the reply.
I worked with WR support a few months ago, nothing was resolved, but the issue seemed to clear up on its own, but now it is back again, i reopened the ticket i had opened.  They've got 11 VMWare servers and this is the only one that is affected.
