top command, being hacked?


My hard disk was going crazy, so I typed top, to see what it would show. The three top cpu users were all vi, all run by root. Is that normal?

Not unless you have vi running elsewhere that you've started.

I was using vi earlier, but I thought I closed all of my terminals(using vi). If I closed them by clicking the x in the corner instead of shiftzz, would that still leave them open.

In some cases it can leave some instances open. I always prefer to close programs properly by usually clicking close in the menu options.
