Hello Friends,

I need some help in analyzing the a high CPU problem.

My system was extremely slow and when i did a top command i can see only one process is running and its occupying 100% CPU. I tried seeing some error message using dmesg and in /var/log/messages/ but no help. :-(

I want to know why it was occupying 100% and what did the process doing. Please help.
