High CPU Utilization of w3wp.exe and Event ID 5000 caused by Search

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

Hello, I am trying to trouble shoot an issue related to my SharePoint server having the CPU pinned down by w3wp.exe.  The only exception I was able to identify has been related to Search.

Event ID 5000 Office SharePoint Server


EventType ulsexception12, P1 w3wp.exe, P2 6.0.3790.1830, P3 42435e74, P4 microsoft.office.server.search, P5 12.0.6245.0, P6 4bbd6526, P7 3012, P8 191, P9 deletedconcurrencyexception, P10 837s.

I am having no luck with any of the codes as part of this error message.  Could any one point me in the right direction related to Event ID 5000 ulsexception12.  To my knowledge there have been no changes made to Search or SSP.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  thank you

Windows SharePoint Services 3 Search Event ID 2424


This error started on 29 April and I cannot get rid of it...  My search works fine, both site and people.  AD profile import works fine.  Full and incremantal crawls work as scheduled.  Just that this error keeps showing up every five minutes in one of two WFE's.  The other WFE does not receive this error


I have verified all Security Configuration/Service Accounts, verified all Services on Server/Search accounts, Stopped/Restarted all search, and verified SSP accounts.  The last thing I did was verify there was an indexer attached to the SSP...

I set the diagnostic logging to verbose and the only thing that stood out around the time of the error was

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Invalid object name 'AR_CacheCounters'.

SqlError: 'Invalid object name 'AR_CacheCounters'.'    Source: '.Net SqlClient Data Provider' Number: 208 State: 1 Class: 16 Procedure: 'proc_ar_GetCacheInvalidationCountersWithCount' LineNumber: 3 Server: 'SERVER'


Any suggestions?

We are getting the following error what would be the root cause.


Our application is divided into 2 projects.


1- C# assembly.

What could be the reason for this.

Is it null pointer exception or some other related to Interoperability assembly mscorlib.dll


This is the event viewer log:

sqlservr.exe high memory utilization


We have a new SQL Server 2008 R2 implementation running on a Windows 2008 R2 64-bit virtual server w/ 12GB RAM.

We've moved only 1 database to this system so far and although it is a highly accessed DB, it ran quite nicely on a Windows 2003 32bit system w/ 3 GB RAM and SQL 2000.

After a fresh boot, the memory utilization is practically nil, however it slowly grows over a week until it is nearly maxed out.  The process eating up the memory is sqlservr.exe.

So, why would the memory be so high and why would it grow slowly over time.  (I've been reading a bit on the Address Windowing Extension (AWE) though I'm not sure this is or isn't what we're experiencing.)

Thanks for your help!

Kind Regards,


Very Low Procedure Cache Hit Ratio and High CPU Utilization


I have a SQL Server 2005 32 bit instance that occassionally has issues with the Procedure Cache.  This instances 200+ databases and is configured with 4 processors and 12 GB of memory.

The Procedure Cache Hit Ratio drops to 25% for an extended period of time.  The size of the procedure cache during this time is very small.  I am able to tell this by quering the DMVs.  Also, DBCC Memory status shows a small procedure cache area.

Using tools such as vmstat.exe or sqbmemory (from Red-Gate) I see that the Commited memory value drops from around 1900 MB to 600 MB and the Reserved memory value increases from 50 MB to 1350 MB.  The memory is being stolen from the Committed bucket and is being reserved by some other SQL process such as XML or CLR.

After we restart the instance, the memory pressure issues go away.

Do any of you know if there is a DMV or a tool that I

SQL Server timeout caused by W3wp.exe crashing




I have a ongoing issue with my website, where it appears the W3wp.exe crashes and in turn anyone attempting to connect to the site will receive a SQL server timeout error.


The error is this...


System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.


What actually happens is when this occurs, the CPU usage on the server maxes out to 100% and stays there. During this time if I try and connect to the homepage the site will appear to be loading and then timeout. This is also the case when i try and connect to the database through management studio.
I get the above SQL timeout error from ELMAH when it emails me exceptions. When I do a iisreset I can once again connect to SQL server and the CPU usage drops immediately.


Now I have already posted a few questions oh here about the issue in regards to the SQL time out exception. So ill list what I have done and what im using...


  • Im using Linq to SQL.
  • SQLCacheDependancy.
  • IIS 7.5 & SQL Server 2008 R2.
  • Disposing of all objects.
  • The call to the Linq to SQL dataContext is always wrapped in a USING Keyword.

Windows Sharepoint Services 3 search not working getting event ids 2424 and 2436.


I can login with the accounts for content and the search service on the local server.

I have the loopback reg fix.

But the crawler will not crawl.

I have deleted all search databases in sql and it I have created one from scratch and setup different accounts for the content and search service.

I downloaded and installed windows sharepoint services 3 with service pack 2 on another server and when I used the same accounts that I had on the non working sharepoint install the search worked.

Windows Sharepoint Services 3 search not working getting event ids 2424 and 2436


This the default install running on Windows 2008 64 bit.

Our content database is located on the d drive and the Sharepoint services 3 install located on the c drive.

We constantly get event ids 2424 and 2436 when the index tries to run. Which is every five minutes.

I have the loopback fix in place.

This was working fine and then it stopped working. When doing a search on sharepoint we were able to pull up some data but not the newest data.

I  deleted the search database and created a new one with a new name.

I also downloaded and installed a new install of sharepoing services 3 and used the same domain accounts for the search service and the content and the index worked when I uploaded something. I was able to do a search.

I tried running a repair on the sharepoint services 3 install and it didn't work.

I hope it is not necessary to re-install everything from scratch.


Not exactly sure why I don't get id 2424 anymore but it is not there.

SQL Server CPU utilization high when idle



I'm running SQL Server 2008 on an 8 CPU machine with 32 gigs of RAM.  When the SQL Server instance is idle, no client requests, the sqlservr.exe process consumes about 10-18% of the CPU on the machine.  I can't seem to figure out why it is consuming this much.  

I found another post here suggesting a user run a script which gets the processor utilization history.  I ran this command and it returns SQLProcessUtilization as 12-13% for the last 30 minutes of usage.  

I ran the profiler and captured the SQL and there was very little being run, all I saw was a query for the DBVersion every 10 seconds or so, and the Duration was 1 with the SQLBatch::Completed in 20 ms.

I'm not as familiar with SQL Server as I am with Oracle, so any help would be appreciated.

ASP.NET Best Practices for High Performance Applications

This article lists the techniques that you can use to maximize the performance of your ASP.NET applications. It provides common issues, design guidelines, and coding tips to build optimal and robust solutions.

MS SQL Server: Search All Tables, Columns & Rows For Data or Keyword Query

If you need to search your entire database for specific data, this query will come in handy.

So when a client needs a custom report or some sort of custom development using Great Plains, most of the time I will have to track down the data in the system by running this query and find the table(s) it is in.

High-Performance .NET Application Development & Architecture

It has always been a goal of project architects to plan an effective strategy from the ground up in regards to an new application. All relevant factors are taken into consideration with respect to the application, from its design and layout to a functional website infrastructure. Pre-.NET strategies and design guidelines still effective now were developed with Microsoft's DNA (Distributed interNet Application) platform. This model successfully served the purpose of architecting N(any number of)-Tier (levels) applications. In its basic sense, as in most robust, distributed applications, you'll architect 3 main layers or Tiers: presentation, business rules and data access.
