Process inv_conf  is taking high CPU. This is not an Oracle process. It is owned by root.

Any guess what this process is all about, google suggest something related to Tivoli.

I recommend using "lsof" to find out the full path of the executable, which should provide a clue as to what it is a part of.

It is tivoli inventory/configuration manager
All the information, including maintenance patches to reduce CPU consumption of inventory collection is available via IBM PassportAdvantage to yout local Tivoli contact.
Some bits here: http://www-01.ibm.com/software/sysmgmt/products/support/IBMTivoliConfigurationManager.html
You can use "smitty lvm" to guarantee resources for production applications while it is running.
