I'm troubleshooting a problem on a hardware node with 5 virtual servers. I came across a forum post elsewhere that seemed to describe my problem. The troubleshooting process had me then looking for processes with a lot of handles. I added the column to the hardware node's task manager and saw immediately that two different virtual servers running smarter stats had nearly and over 20,000 handles each. I restarted the services on their respective servers and they both dropped back down to about a thousand.
Is this normal operation? If not, how do I prevent it from happening, or get an alert when it goes wrong?
