trying to find a process that is creating log files everyday
I got this Fedora release 14 server running. And it has a process somewhere that creates a very large log file every day at 2:30am on the dot.
Let's call it application A. It will create the log file names with following format: A.time_stamp.cfg
and it's always in the same directory: home/userB/appA/
I would like to find this process and shut it off. ps -tree doesn't really help because there are too many unknown processes for me to rule out.
Lsof doesn't help, it shows me nothing for some reason. Even when I vi'ed the file and afterwards I ran lsof I get nothing back.
I would also like to find out where it is running from so I can see the execution script.
Does any have any clues about how I should proceed with this?
