tcpd using 90% of CPU
Posted on 2001-07-18
tcpd is using up 90% of my resources on a redhat 7.1 machine.
when I examine /var/log/messages I see the following messages:
tcpd: warning: can't get client address: Socket operation on non-socket
tcpd: connect from unknown
I saw a post on groups.google.com that said it might be a misconfiguration in my hosts file...
my boxes hostname is : mail
but when I type : host mail
I get : Host mail. not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
which makes me think that I have messed up someplace....
here are the lines in my host file:
127.0.0.1 mydomain.com mydomain localhost.localdomain localhost
I know I've goofed somewhere, but I just don't know where, any help at this point would be great.. as this log file grows by a MB every 5 minutes :/
