I'm working on a linux box and the output of
top reveals that the command
nscd) is using 100% of CPU.
I'm uploading a flat file to MySQL from this box, and it is taking a long time (albeit it is a very large file)... I am curious whether
nscd could be slowing it down by hogging all the CPU.
That said, I'm puzzled as to why anything could be working with a process taking 100% of CPU... because, after all, I am running bash scripts, perl scripts, and bash commands fine notwithstanding.
Is this a known problem with
nscd? Is it actually hogging 100% of
CPU as top reports?
