When Qualys scan (www.qualys.com - scan network for security threats) is run on zLinux server with OEM 12c Agent, causes agent to consume excessive CPU and stops server.
There were several instances of zLinux OEM agent on main production servers consuming upwards of 400% CPU,
and this brings the database to a halt and eventually the agent has to be restarted to release CPU resources.
EM 126.96.36.199.0 Agent patched to EM Bundle Patch 188.8.131.52.10 (21168025) running on zlinux (IBM: Linux on System z).
This CPU resource shortage issue will bring main production system to a halt, and can not process overnight batch work and will breach customer SLAs.
