I have been working on this issue for quite a few weeks now with no resolution yet. We have upgraded to SCCM Version 1702 with a fresh install of on Server 2016. As you can see from the attached Vsphere screenshot since installing WSUS the CPU maxes every 10 minutes or so. SCCM console is unusable during this period. The high CPU is stemming from the WSUS pool, which I have set to throttle to 50%, but that does not appear to be working. I also set the private memory limit to 4GB, which did not make any difference in cpu usage. I believe another issue related to this is the 0x80072EE2 error when automatically deploying Windows updates. Clients can talk to SCCM and deploy applications normally, but windows updates all error out. Any help would be greatly appreciated as our team is at our wits end between these two issues.
