SFMProviderModule process is taking too much memory

Hi

I have a blade server BL860c i2 running HP-UX 11.31, that has the above process consuming a lot of memory:

UNIX95=1 ps -ef -o vsz= -o pid= | sort -rnk1 |awk '{ print $1/1024" MB "$2" "$3; }' | more

1645.28 MB 1744
503.598 MB 19499
86.9414 MB 19502
86.0039 MB 19501

ps -ef | grep 1744
    root  1744  1722  0  Dec  8  ?        72:19 /opt/wbem/lbin/cimprovagt 0 4 9 root SFMProviderModule

Would it be possible to stop this process without causing any issues on the server?

Re: SFMProviderModule process is taking too much memory

SFM (System Fault Management) is the core subsystem for handling and reporting system faults. Here are the reference manuals:

Killing the provider module cause problems with all the other diagnostic modules.
I would first update the WBEM bundle using this link:
