Hi,
Start/stop cim_server:
# /sbin/init.d/cim_server stop

If not all the "cimprovagt" processes died, you can kill them. Then start again:

# /sbin/init.d/cim_server start

If you SFM/wbem components are old you should consider to upgrade new versions.

It's most likely a bug. Yes.

>What impact will it have if I don't start it?

Why do you care? If you restart it, it won't be taking all that time. (You would have to watch out for it.)

If you don't have it running, the hardware diagnostics won't be running.

>I am not using CIM server/ services.

Perhaps you don't need it??

Re: cimprovagent in top

Saying that the WBEM provider agents are of low release quality would be an understatement.

I've had my fair share of trouble with them over the last 4 years (memory leaks, CPU loops, etc), the type of problems that should make HP ashamed of including them by default in an enterprise operating system.

Most of these providers let you monitor hardware and benefit from other management functions when you integrate HP-UX in SIM. If you don't do this, it could be a good idea to just turn them off.

Or if you really need them, as I do, keep up to date with your patches and try to update the providers and WBEM Services regularly.

Good luck
