Via Windows Task Manager, I frequently notice that instances of mscorsvw.exe are consuming 100% of one Core and as much as 2GB RAM for many minutes.  From my understanding this process is spawned from the NET Runtime Optimization Service, and should only be active when the machine is idle.  This behaviour occurs whether the machine is idle or not. 

Obviously such intense resource use has a significant impact on the performance of the machine.

Thank you for your feedback. Since the scheduling policy of .NET Runtime Optimization Service is different depending on the type of the OS and .NET Framework, could you please provide the following information: What is the version of the .NET Framework, and the version of the Windows? Is this a client or server SKU of OS? What are the parent processes of mscorsvw.exe?

Generally speaking, .NET Runtime Optimization Service runs more proactively on server systems than on client systems. In particular, on Windows Server 2012, it no longer waits for idle, in order to bring the server more quickly to a stable state. In Windows 7 and below, the scheduling is handled by .NET Framework, while on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the scheduling is controlled by Windows. Regardless of the version, the Optimization Service should always be running at low prioriy, to minimize impact to other applications.
