When we initiate a Nessus scan on our server, the ColdFusion Application Server consumes 80-90% of the CPU and continues to do so even after the scan is terminated. Only restarting the service brings the usage back to normal, but starting the scan repeats the high CPU usage. No errors are thrown, just high CPU.
IIS 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, ColdFusion 2016.0.04.302561
Any ideas where to start troubleshooting?
Could you please try this step and then run the scanner once and share the details.
Go to \ColdFusion2016\cfusion\lib\ open "jetty.xml" and search for port "5500". Host shows "0.0.0.0", please replace it with 127.0.0.1. Save the changes and restart ColdFusions service.
Will do, but will need to wait for our maintenance window to restart the service. I'll report back when we can.
Having the same issue. CPU getting maxed out and won't release after scans unless services are restarted. Was this ever solved??
