dm_memory hogging CPU

re: an L2000 running HPUX 11.00. It's dm_memory process has just started hogging CPU.
I used monconfig to stop monitoring. Because of its problem dm_memory would not stop so I had to kill it! ( About a minute later I found that dm_memory had restarted itself somehow! )
I then used monconfig to restart ALL the monitors again. dm_memory was still running after that so I then did "(C)heck detailed monitoring status" from monconfig and it claimed:
">/system/events/memory ... NOT MONITORING."
" (Possibly there is no hardware to monitor.)"

dm_memory is still hogging CPU. ( 90 odd % )
In /etc/opt/resmon/log 3 files are being written to. They are api.log, client.log and registrar.log. api.log is being over-written every few seconds!!! e.g.'s of the logs are attached.

I have also run stm and tested most things ( including memory! ) and it doesn't show any problems.

I have also download and run HP's SHC (System Health Check). This showed no memory related problems.

Any thought would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks, Garry

As you probabyl know, 11.00 is unsupported since end of 2006.

Anyway, make sure you have the latest diagnostics version installed:

HP-UX 11.00 (March 04 release)
ID: B.11.00.27.xx, STM version: A.44.00

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
