FSADM process showing eating CPU

Hello everyone,

Running top this fsadm process showed eating up CPU. I did a ps -ef on the PID and got these details. Any thoughts?

root 12607 12606 253 06:58:18 ? 161:54 fsadm -e -E -d -D -p50 -t 28800 -sv /opt/rex/src


Thanks,

Shalom,

This is a process in progress that might take some time to finish.

Its best to let it takes its course and complete. fsadm works on file systems and interrupting it is not recommended most of the time.

Re: FSADM process showing eating CPU

This process fsadm with -e -E -d -D option will re-oragine your file system and will optimize it.

It is time consuming and depends from file system size.

A perusal of the fsadm_vxfs (fsadm for vxfs file systems) man page will yield information about the options used here.
