SD Process

Hello,

I have /usr/sbin/sd running on an HP-UX 11.0 server .It is taking up 100% of one of my 6 CPUS. I don't see this running on a similar server. Can I kill this proc ID without creating any issues?

CPU TTY PID USERNAME PRI NI SIZE RES STATE TIME %WCPU %CPU COMMAND
2 ? 15582 root 241 20 11440K 1340K run 290:01 100.09 99.92 sd

root 15582 1 239 09:17:15 ? 293:14 /usr/sbin/sd

Thanks,
PG

Re: SD Process

Yes, you should be able to kill this.

If you do a 'man sd', you will see the sd is "...an interactive interface to the same functionality that swjob provides."

It sounds like someone invoked sd and then somehow broke out of it leaving the process running.

+ The sd command invokes an interactive interface to the same functionality that swjob provides.

# ps -ef| grep swjob
# swagentd -r
