Unhappy GAMSERVER Problem


I am running AMDx2 processor and a high speed
DSL line.

The problem is this -- Sometimes I get to me
computer in the morning and it's totally bogged
down.

The process 'gamserver' is using 98% of the CPU,
Deleting the process does no good, it simply
restarts! Loggin out is the only option.

As why it stays logged in, I work at home and as
a programmer I have multiple dual-screens filled
with data. To shut down and restart costs me a
hour at least -- and I have lost my place somewhat.

I assume that gamserver is being taken over by
an outside user on the web..

What is gamserver Function??

How can I protect myselft without shutting everthing
down all the time.

Helps to know what the game is and your distro of choice may also affect advice.

Also, why does the game server restart itself? It really shouldn't...

The gameserver should not restart if you killed it (unless it has a parent process that is respawning it). Try using kill -9 "PID". Where PID is the Process ID. You can get it from top or ps (assuming you know how to do this).

Global Array Manager (called GAM hereafter) is a client/server application used to configure, Disk array system consisting of Fibre Channel Disk Array Unit. You may use following steps.

1)Stop GAM Server.
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/gam stop
2)Make sure that GAM Server processes are not existing.
# ps –ef | grep gam
3)If some GAM Server processes are still existing after the preceding command, kill them.
# kill –9 <process ID>

You might find some help here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ght=gam_server

You are not being hacked. The gam_server is a legit, although buggy by the look of it, program. If you run KDE you need it because the kde libs are compiled against it. If you are not running KDE you might get away with killing it and renaming/mv'ing it.
