    Hello,

    The process below is running at a random interval on my server and causing very high server load.


    And the server load doesn't come back to normal until I kill the process manually.

    Output of ps aux|grep yum


    Can anyone please tell me why it's running and how to fix the problem?

    Hello :)

    Check for any hanging YUM and RPM processes via:

    Code:
    ps aux|grep rpm
    ps aux|grep yum
    Kill any of these processes that are no longer active, and then rebuild the RPM database via:

    Code:
    mkdir /root/old_rpm_dbs/
    mv /var/lib/rpm/__db* /root/old_rpm_dbs/
    rpm --rebuilddb
    Then, run "yum update" to see if it completes successfully.

    Thank you.
