I installed Redhat 6.1 about 2 weeks ago, I have noticed that if I leave the computer on for more than a day my CPU meter is maxed and I have to reboot to get it to go back to normal. What is going on? Are there processes running that I don't know about, also Last night about every 5 seconds the cpu would hit 80 percent for about a second then go back to normal.
Basically I think my system is not stable, and I would like to leave it on forever without having to reboot.
Is it possible to alter a config to help with this problem?
