    I just checked the cpu usage and this...

    /usr/sbin/rcd

    is using up 100% of the cpu which is a p4 2.0 GHZ

    Anyone know what /usr/sbin/rcd
    is? Should I kill it?

    Phantom, I am not familiar with rcd and don't want to say anythig scary about it. But, I have checked both our servers and neither has it listed in /usr/sbin nor does it appear on either's process list. The fact that it is consuming 100% of CPU, would make me kill it...

    red carpet daemon from ximian http://developer.ximian.com/projects/rcd/

    that's the red carpet daemon from ximian (they mak an outlook clone for GNOME, inf act, that's teh udpate tool for it)
    GNOME is a Windowing environment for the X wndows system used by most *NIXes for a GUI

    1) it means it's doing something and 2) it means someone has installed Evolution, and there's no sane reason for that to be installed unless you like buggy programs that emulate even buggier programs

    on your box did you install a workstation instead server??

    I would have to agree, who ever installed that (probably a user) is a bit confused. ANyways, if its using 100% of your cpu, I would just kill it. Set a cron job to run the kill process every hour or half hour or something if its something that runs at all times.
