Process sucking all cpu resource!! please help..
 
Can someone help me on this?

When i start my linux (SuSE 9.1 AMD64) my cpu goes berserk working always on 100%
I caught the process who was working fulltime (100%) it was the process "find" UID nobody
Does anybody know what this is?

Thanks.

open a console, and type "top" hit enter

That will tell you what is happening, what is the name of the process using it all up?

btw, there's something about the statement "process sucking" that's just funny :nanahump:

sorry, I didn't see that you caught the process

what happens when you run as root and try to kill the pid for it?

The process is called find and run by user nobody.
I killed the process and now everything is normal again. i tried to reboot and the process was up again.

How do i do that?

i already did an 'killall find' with root. my cpu is working normal again.
The thing i want to know is can this be an trojan or a hacked binary that someone put in here?

no, I think it's todo with updatedb, depending on your config the cron job uses find in conjunction with updatedb. You should be able to edit that out of your crontab.

And that uses a 100% on cpu? it doesnt stop on reboot until i kill it..

yeah it's launched by your cron on boot

updatedb is using find to help update the journal. It should go away after a while, but you can edit that out of your crontab.

On my machine it doesn't use %100 of my CPU...what kinda hw you got?

hmm, just have to take it off the cron list then, that's odd must be a suse-problem.
