Re: CPU Usage for egsagent

These processes are part of the EMC Control Center product, used to manage Symmetrix disk storage. Talk to your disk storage administrator about the product. The behavior of the product depends entirely on how it was setup and how many Symmetrix arrays it is managing. You may find that a dedicated high end PC is more appropriate for running this product, especially if your HP-UX box is running other applications and database engines.
