I am using RHEL 6.2, and get the following:

top - 06:36:48 up 13:43,  4 users,  load average: 1.89, 1.69, 1.72
Tasks: 433 total,   4 running, 421 sleeping,   0 stopped,   8 zombie
Cpu(s):  0.0%us,  6.2%sy,  0.0%ni, 93.7%id,  0.0%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.0%si,  0.0%st

Swap: 68005880k total,        0k used, 68005880k free,  7727056k cached

  PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND
  123 root      20   0     0    0    0 R 100.0  0.0 473:46.80 kacpi_notify

Open in new window


I looked up kacpi_notify, and saw several threads that siad this process took extra cycles when the machine was hot.

I checked the system status, but the temparatures were normal

How can I further track this down

(I had previously performed several reboots with the same problem reoccuring.

Thinking the machine must have been hop, even though the system status showed otherwise, I turned the machine off for an hour

I booted up after an hour, and the problem went away.
