Quick Question

root 5493 0.0 0.1 3636 644 ? SN 13:13 0:00 find . -name * -print
root 5494 54.1 0.2 4340 1388 ? RN 13:13 0:21 /usr/bin/awk
root 9612 0.0 0.1 4104 940 ? RN 13:14 0:00 sh -c zcat "./QDomEntity.3qt.gz"

I noticed my CPU usage spike and saw this. I've seen it before too and I have no idea what it is and what it is doing. Anyone know?

I'm running RH9 if it matters.
