Aex-swscan-bin consumes 100% of Central Processing Unit(CPU)
Last Updated April 30, 2019
Aex-swscan-bin consumes almost 100% of CPU when inventory is run on Mac or Linux computer
This is normal behavior on Mac and Linux operating systems (OS's); when no other process is using much CPU the OS will not limit a process that can use the rest of the CPU. This will occur even if the System resource usage setting in the Advanced Options of an inventory policy/task is set to Very Low. The System resource usage setting only affects the priority of the aex-swscan-bin process on Linux and Mac OS's.
