hpkassvc.exe causing memory issue?

We have a DL185 G5 NAS with windows storage server 2003 R2 with 4 GB memory, about every 2 hours it seems to freeze for about 3 minutes. During this time we can’t RDP into it, if we already are then it becomes unresponsive, we monitor SNMP and during this time they are unable to connect to the server. Fortunately NFS and windows file share seems unaffected by this.

The best I can come up with is that the memory usage keeps increasing then drops after these incidents so something is taking the memory I think it is the hpkassvc.exe process cause it keeps climbing in memory but I been unable to determine what this is. I ran a Microsoft Performance analysis of Logs (PAL) tool and it also indicates this process to be an issue “Memory: an increasing trend of 10MB's per hour detected” & “This process is using more than 1000 other I/O's per second” with average 1,431.

Does anyone know what hpkassvc.exe is or what this issue could be?

Thanks.
