I have an unusual problem. I ran a non-credentialed scan on two Windows Servers, both running Qlogic HBA software, on Oct 7, 2014. The sunrpc service for Qlogic listens on port 111. A NetStat indicated that this sunrpc service had 104 ESTABLISHED connections to our two Qualys appliances causing a serious performance issue. When the servers were rebooted the connections were cleared and performance was restored to normal. I do not think it was a Qualys problem but an issue with the servers. Has anyone seen anything like this? Is there a recent document of known Qualys issues that I can refer to? I am getting all kinds of heat from this from upper mgmt. and need to respond asap. Any help or direction is appreciated. If needed I can supply more details.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
