Every 61 minutes or close to it, the Altiris Service and the Altiris Client Message Dispatcher Service stop and start again for apparently no reason. This had been going on unnoticed for several weeks, with the exception that the stopping and starting process was interrupting and often wiping out changes and work being performed at that moment; but it was unknown as to what was causing the console hiccups.
In the Application > Event Log, there were many of the following "Information" entries reoccurring almost every hour (61 minutes):
Source: AltirisClientMsgDispatche Description: Service Stopped Successfully
Source: AltirisClientMsgDispatche Description: Service Started Successfully
Source: AeXSvc Description: Service Stopped Successfully
Source: AeXSvc Description: Service Started Successfully
Possibly caused by the known memory leak in Notification Server 6.0.6470.
The problem stopped after applying Notification Server update "Altiris NS 6.0 SP3 Update (KB23784)," also known as R2, and restarting the server.
Applies To Notification Server 6.0.6074
