Hi,

The process /usr/local/frontpage/version5.0/exes/_vti_bin/shtml.exe is using high memory on the server. This process is owned by one domain. I have tried to kill the process but it starts again.

Can anybody give me more info regarding this process?

Thanks,

Kailash

Have you checked the access logs to see if someone is trying to use a frontpage hack?

I would uninstall frontpage extensions for that customer and reinstall them if it's not a hack.

You may find that happening if the customer in question has a large frontpage site with many pages / subwebs / etc and they are Recalculating Hyperlinks.

This can go extraordinarily high if the customer is using a frontpage guestbook (notorious spamtraps) - the resultant file generated often gets up into the 100s of megabytes. And when Frontpage processes that to add to its search data during a Recalculate Hyperlinks, CPU usage can soar.
