I've got a server on which I keep finding these perl processes running by nobody that are using 100% CPU. I'm trying to find out where they are coming from. I am using mod_perl with httpd running as nobody. "cat /proc/27713/cmdline" gives "/usr/sbin/httpd," which isn't really very helpful. How can I find out what perl script this process is executing?
