    Hello,

    I have a few servers which are with me for a few months, never had problems with them. I always Automatic update to the (RELEASE tree).

    Now i hired a few new servers and configged them the same as me others..since a few weeks tho i see the following with all server:




    PID USER PRI NI SIZE RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM TIME CPU COMMAND
    25177 root 20 0 780 776 580 R 33.1 0.0 0:09 0 grep
    25054 root 20 0 780 776 580 R 32.1 0.0 0:16 0 grep
    25086 root 19 0 780 776 580 R 30.2 0.0 0:10 0 grep


    Constantly there is a command GREP on all servers causing 100% cpu usage if 1 process or its split up like above.

    I do now know what this process is or what is causing it..i only know that it has a different PID every few seconds..its like eating up my system performance.

    Anyone knows what this can be?

    could this be the dns clustering??

    i've seen a thread here http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=28115

    and i have checked my /var/cpanel/cluster/root/config

    I got a few ips there and some have -dnsrole after the ip..

    Not sure of this is related to the cluster probs..
