"find" processes

"find" processes

"find" processes

(OP)
Hi Guys,

I'm having performance issues on a server (AIX 7.1). And I found there're some "find" processes using lot CPU. But I couldn't find where the processes from.

root 35651682 1 15 04:15:18 - 11:24 find / -fstype nfs -prune -o ( -nouser -o -nogroup ) -ls

Anyway I can find out where it is from?

Thanks,

RE: "find" processes

Check cronjobs for root.

RE: "find" processes

Pick a day when the system is quite inactive and (as root) change the permissions on find to 700 (make a note of what they are before you chmod the file). Watch for any jobs that fail. If that doesn't work, it's root that is using it. Change the permissions back to what they were before. Next non-busy day (Sun afternoons?) change the permissions to 000. Watch for "root" processes that fail. Very dirty way to do things, but it works.

That's an easy and almost painless way to get fired.

@iggsterman: Ummm, don't you have a test environment? Or is production all there is?

@johnherman I am not the OP so I have no idea.

RE: "find" processes

Most IT shops have a test environment. Very risky not to have one. Some also have a development environment. ALWAYS test first in the test environment. Sorry for not being clear. Do not modify anything that is untested in a production environment. No matter how much pressure you are under to get the system "back up and running".
