udevd consuming lot of CPU

I am running Fedora Core 4 on a Dell PowerEdge 1750. Recently, I have noticed (from running the top command) that the udevd process is consuming a lot of CPU - approximately 30%. I have never seen this process taking so much of CPU before.

- Kernel version: 2.6.11
- udev version: 058-1

- What could be causing this?
- Is this an hardware issue?
- How do I resolve it?

Thanks for your time.

Have a look at your /var/log/messages file and see if something is causing the problem.

I checked the /var/log/messages file and I don't see anything that is related to udev or any hardware error messages. Anything specific, other than the obvious error messages, that I need to look for in the /var/log/messages file that could be related to udev?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
