Not sure what "console-kit-daemon --no-daemon" means


When I run htop, I see the following repeated several times:
Code:
/usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon --no-daemon
What does this mean? Is there something wrong that's causing this to be repeated several times? Is this an unnecessary process that I can get rid of?

hi

google suggests this is the answer
http://serverfault.com/questions/160...-it-be-stopped

2) so as htop is showing multithreads the real question is how much is it using?

my example as run by local user

Code:
ps wwu -C console-kit-daemon
USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
root      1215  0.0  0.1  27684  3264 ?        Sl   19:04   0:00 /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon --no-daemon 

or

ps axuw | grep console
root      1215  0.0  0.1  27684  3264 ?        Sl   19:04   0:00 /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon --no-daemon
good luck

Thanks. I guess the display of the repeating process is more a quirk with htop than with anything else.
