The WMI service on this computer is using too much memory.
This monitor periodically checks the total memory usage of WMI on the computer by checking the Private Bytes counter for all process instances starting with WmiPrv and comparing that with 2 thresholds. By default this monitor will go into a warning state if any WMI related process consumes more than 500MB of memory. It will go into an error state if any WMI related process consumes more than 600MB of memory.
A possible cause is a WMI memory leak, causing WMI to consume more and more memory over time.
If you see a pattern of WMI memory issues, this monitor has a disabled recovery that will automatically restart WMI when the warning or error threshold is exceeded. If you see that this resolves the issue, you can enable one of those recoveries.
