I've an Olinuxino Mini Wifi Board. I've just installed the latest ArchLinux ARM image from Archlinux's website. I have some issues about CPU load affecting to overall performance. After a ps -aux command, I can see this:
USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND
root 1179 47.6 2.3 4804 1252 ? Rs 20:39 2:56 /usr/sbin/crond -n
The cron daemon loads about 40~50% of the CPU (and there is not any cron job in crontab). This makes the system very slow, even using terminal is exasperating... Anyone have the same problem? I understand that maybe a proccess started by cron could load the CPU, but not the crond itself.
Thanks in advance
Yes i have that problem too. Cron is using 99% processor time. After a few minutes it stops though!
Hi, I have the same problem. crond is using 40% - 45% cpu and bogging down the system..
Did anyone find a fix to this ? running stock 2.6 kernel.
