Last updated on SEPTEMBER 14, 2017

Applies to:

Private Cloud Appliance - Version 2.1.1 and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

The Hardware Management daemon, which runs as the process named hwmgmtd, can sometimes consume a large amount of CPU capacity.
This tends to become worse over time and eventually reach 100 percent. As a direct result, the system becomes less responsive over time.
