    Stuck process named "processess" on ubuntu 10.04

    Details

    Ubuntu 10.04 on Amazon EC2 using Community Image from ubuntu

    Just happened few hours ago.

    there is a process called "processes" using 100% CPU , stucked, and caused one core of my CPU always 100%.

    Load average also jumped to 4.x from usual 0.x

    What is this process?
    How to solve?

    Hi!

    Let's find out the executable for this process

    Can you do the following, and post the output
    ls -l /proc/5466/exe

    Also, run the following and please make the file available on any file sharing website
    sudo strace -o /tmp/processes-strace.log -f -p 5466
    kill the above command after 60 seconds or so



    I think this process belongs to "byobu" the modified GNU/Screen. If you're running that, could you try exiting and see if that fixes the problem

    The server crashed in the morning and after a restart and a day, everything is normal so far.

    Thanks for the reply. I will keep it until the next incident.
