    i noticed this too. this seems something related to fantastico but i don't know why it takes so much load. i think the issue should be raised with the netenberg developers of fantastico.

    I had this many times lately but not on many servers. I just killed the process and removed the auto update / cron Ill just update it manually once in a while.
