Try stop and restart


Restart the dmisp daemon, utilization will come down to normal.

Re: dmisp consuming more CPU on HP-UX 11.

Hi Santhosh,

To answer your first question:

"'dmisp' part of Desktop Management Interface - DMI is used by inventory management softwares like Insight manager, Service control manager. If you don't have them installed, then you don't need to have it running. "

http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?admit=109447626+1251120920299+28353475&threadId=733081

To answer the second question, if you are running Systems Insight Manager or other management software like the one listed above, it´s likely that this software collect informaiton about managed nodes, so it is likely that they will store information as their ip address.

Jaime.

Shalom,

A bi-annual patch installation may help.

PPID being 1 may indicate the process is orphaned and can not be killed.

If that is the case, reboot may be required to fix it?

Re: dmisp consuming more CPU on HP-UX 11.

For the benefit of anybody else searching for /usr/dmi/bin/dmisp looping at 100% CPU on HP-UX 11.11 (aka HP-UX 11i).

Mine did this again after the server had been up for exactly one year.

Restarting the application in a root "at" job cleared the problem.

at now
/sbin/init.d/Dmisp stop
/sbin/init.d/Dmisp start
