High CPU usage while browsing Octopus web pages

I’m seeing 100% CPU usage (single core VM) from the w3wp.exe process as users simply browse the Octopus web site. This has likely been a problem for some time but has continued to grow as our usage of Octopus has grown. In order to begin diagnosing this I’ve used NewRelic to gather some traces from the web application which I have attached. Of note, I have several hundred individual projects in this Octopus install. I can gather some additional traces if needed but in most I’m seeing slowness that is a result of 100% CPU usage and likely not the cause of it so a pointed search towards suspect transactions would work best.


Hi Adam,

Thanks for letting me know, I’ll try to trace into it and find ways to
reduce the CPU usage. What version of Octopus are you using?
