High CPU Utilization of the Local Probe Device



I am installing the PRTG (18.4.45) on the windows server 2016 which consist of 4 processor and 16GB memory. Also adding the network devices detail for the monitoring. But the cpu utilization of the local probe device is always high (greater than 70%). I am not able to understand why these cpu utilization is always high?? Is these happening due to OS ???

We need some more information (log files) from your PRTG to give you a precise answer. Please open a support ticket and we will continue troubleshooting there. Please refer to this KB article in the ticket.

Thank you
