hi,
i am experiencing a problem with very high Load Average, and do not get much wiser from looking under Process Manager.
It is only one command, called "id" which takes approx. 500 - 600% of CPU.


PidOwnerPriorityCPU %Memory %Command
20556 (Trace) (Kill)root0
606.86
0.01ls

Each time i Kill it, it just pops right back up.

Any clue what this could be?

This is implying that there is a process owned by root that is running an ls command - if you log in via the CLI and run the following what do you see?
Code:
ps faux |grep 20556
You might also look at what has it open by running lsof -p 20556
