    I keep getting all of these killing all of the cpu; would it be safe to kill the process

    32051 nobody 15 0 2224 1868 640 R 16.7 0.1 17244m 0 perl

    What could be causing this? Thanks!

    Go on, have a guess
    When you use top press c to find out which perl script is being executed, or use the following using the PID:

    lsof -p PID
