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.

You can use "smitty lvm" to guarantee resources for production applications while it is running.
