Question

Hi guys, just out of curiosity I ran a performance diagnosis (the Windows system tool) of my computer and one thing caught my eye...
Warning: High average interrupts / processor. This machine has 4 processors and 4 network cards. Total Interrupts/sec on the machine is 53676. The average interrupts per processor per sec is 13419.This is one of the warnings that popped up in the report, but I have no idea what it means, whether it's normal and whether it can be fixed or not??

Sorry that the information is extremely vague, but I do not know what information would be needed in order to diagnose a problem/explain what it means.

Could someone please help me find out what is going on?
If you need any information at all just ask and I'll update the post with the relevant information.
Thanks in advance!

(I am running Windows 7 x64, Service Pack 1)

While I'm not real knowledgeable about this issue, I do believe that it means that there may be either a hardware or a driver problem (from this topic: High CPU - Hardware Interrupts - Sysinternals Forums - Page 1 )

I'd suggest looking through your event viewer for recurring errors that may give you a clue as to what's misbehaving. I've researched this issue once before, and the large number of network cards (this is actually normal) caused me to investigate the network drivers and devices.

Check in Device Manager for any issues with Network Adapters. Then obtain the latest network device drivers from the device manufacturer's website.

If that doesn't fix things, we'll have to ask for further assistance from those who know more about this than I do.

Follow the instructions on this page - DPC Latency Checker

Disable various drivers one by one until the test shows mostly green bars (low latency).

Ahhh haha, this may be my issue then... I have noticed that under network adapters I have several driver issues, and I don't even know what half of the adapters are for.

Thanks for the tool very useful!

I am still getting a few hits in the 7-8k microseconds though...
The majority of the bars are green with a couple yellow and a couple red every now and then.
I just went and disabled all of the devices that weren't working properly, but yeah, still getting a few issues.

My event log only shows issues where I haven't closed programs before I shutdown so I had to force shutdown so I'm assuming that's what those logs are (Category: Shutdown Performance Monitoring).

I just ran another performance test and it still says I'm getting 45.5k interruptions... 8/
Any other ideas about what it could be?

What issues are you having in Device Manager under Network Adapters.

Most commonly there are issues with these devices:
- 6to4 Adapter
- Teredo
- ISATAP
- Unknown

The Fix for these is to uninstall each one (right click and select "Uninstall"), then reboot. If needed the devices will reinstall - but in most cases they aren't needed and don't reinstall

Yes, these are the exact ones that I'm having issues with, haha.
At the moment they are disabled (I was apprehensive to uninstall in case something went wrong) but I will try that right now, and post the results.

Thank you to everyone for the replies and advice, much appreciated!

Ok, so I've uninstalled those and the issues have disappeared!
They did not re-install on reboot, either.
Thanks very much for the help!

Sorry, now going off-topic but this is another thing that has been bugging me.
Do you know anything about memory usage and processes though?
I'm sitting and idling at the moment (just Firefox and Skype open and my system is using 1.88GB or RAM... I have 4GB in total on my machine.
Somehow I don't think this is normal...

Sorry, but I can't use HJT logs as I don't have a clue about what to do with them!


Please do this to figure out what's eating up the RAM (in this case you just need to sort the RAM column to see what's going on):
Quote:
Task Manager:
Also, you can monitor the system for excessive resource consumption. To do this, open up Task Manager by right clicking on the Task Bar.
Then select the Processes tab.
Then select the "Show processes from all users" button (in the lower left)
Then select the View menu item, then select "Select columns"
In the Select columns window, place checkmarks next to I/O Reads and I/O Other.
Click OK to accept the changes.
Resize the Task Manager window so you can see the most of the columns.
Wait for the system to freeze/take up the resources.
Look at all of the columns to see if there's anything that looks excessively high - if so, let us know the Image name of the process.
NOTE: If the image name is svchost.exe - right click on it and select "Go to Service(s)" and let us know the Services that it highlights
FWIW - System Idle Process is supposed to have high CPU readings - anything else with high CPU readings is an issue.

Hahaha oops, not a problem! 8P
Hmmm... I did as you said aaaaaand I see the Spybot Search and Destroy process called TeaTimer.exe clocking 12.5million I/O other?
The next highest is my Western Digital HDD service which is clocking 1.5mil...
I've read that some viruses disguise themselves as TeaTimer.exe and they are located in System32, but there isn't a copy located there, so I'm assuming this is legit?

I've also just looked it up (on the Spybot website) and apparently it does use a lot of RAM/CPU, but 12.5mil sounds like a lot...

It is a lot. Uninstall the SpyBot program, reboot the system and see if it goes away.
There's no need to run a W-D HDD service all the time either. Uninstall that also.
