Xsun proc taking 49% of processor 5.8 V240 sparc

Hey!

My Xsun process is constantly taking up 49% of a processor on a SUN V240.

Anyone have any idea why this might be happening and the best way to troubleshoot it?

Sol 5.8 Generic_117000-03 Sun4u

Thanks!

Any one running screen saver at the time?

and user use "XDMCP" remote login to the box?

You should also apply the lastest Solaris patch cluster (which incuding the Xsun
patchs).

has this been a problem since install?
if not then what changed?

looks like you are a long way behind in patching......
put on the latest patch cluster from sun and see if that helps.

Thanks for the help.  here's some info.

has this been a problem since install?
>>> I don't know.  I have inherited these boxes.  they have been running for some time.

if not then what changed?
>>> Unknown.  I only just noticed the problem, however.  I don't believe it has been happening since I took them over.

Any one running screen saver at the time?
>>> Unknown.  How could I check, without going from machine to machine (I.E. what are the different processes I should look for?)  
The fact that it is still doing it makes me think no.

and user use "XDMCP" remote login to the box?
Yes.  Most people are using Exceed 8 or 9.

>>> I can look into patching...unfortunately, due to the client of these systems, getting them patched would be a 3-6 month process (3-5.9 months for paperwork....1 month for patching :-)

P.S. What would happen if I just kill the process.  Would init restart it?  Would all the users connected lose their X-Sessions?

Thanks!

You will lost the GUI login screen.

It'll not restart automatically, and you need to run:
/etc/rc2.d/S99dtlogin start

to restart it.

Have a nice weekend to all of you, cheers!

Hi rightmirem,
   Sorry, I didn't read yout comment http:#17775297

   To get back to your question:

>To check if the screen save is runing, you need to check if dtscreen or xlock, you can type in:
   ps -ef | egrep -i "dtscreen|xlock"

>Yes.  Most people are using Exceed 8 or 9.
   You need to check when how many XDMCP connetion (logins) at the time, you have
problem.

Sorry.  Point became moot...as a bad motherboard crashed the system and took out the hard drives.  MBD has been replaced, hard drives restored...and life is good again.

Thanks for the help though!
