Now there's a plan!  Of course, I've now gone 36 hours without a spike, so 
maybe (probably?) it wasn't something on my server at all (because I've 
changed nothing) and was fixed elsewhere.  I was beginning to suspect 
something on the network, but we never had the right personnel available 
to look at the network when things were acting up.

And thanks for sharing that link -- that's a very interesting utility, 
being installed posthaste.

Re: CPU Spiking






You could try dumping the call stacks a few times during a spike and a few 

times during normal operation to see what the task is doing with all that 
CPU.
