After hitting some performance issues with one of our servers, I observed a Tomcat8 process called "Silence" using 100% continuously. I tried to find information about it on Google, but searching for Tomcat and Silence doesn't show any meaningful results.
Here is what I've got in
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND 7362 tomcat8 20 0 239956 6688 1344 S 99.7 0.2 1679:33 Silence
Can someone help me understand what this "Silence" process is and how to fix this problem? Of course there is nothing called "Silence" in our project, so I guess it is something Tomcat related.
