Occassionally my harddisk goes wild with activity and top reports:

 263 root      14   0  992  368  256 R    91.4  0.5  0:27 find / ( -fstype
nfs -o -fstype

Any ideas what's going on?

Is this the result of some previously useful cron job?  What is
in
the cron log.  It would be helpful to have your top line for
the top printout.  0:27 is that the time and how long was the
fine going ?? was it 27 seconds?  If someone has such a process
started for a good reason then its priority may be scaled back or
nice'd into obscurity.

Hi,

David Kirkpatrick spoke these words of wisdom:
: Is this the result of some previously useful cron job?  What is
: in

Well, I think you got the solution there. I believe Joe stumbled
over an 'updatedb' run by cron. This updates the databes needed
when you do a 'locate <filename>', so that you do not have
to run a long 'find / <filename>'!

Bye,
Michael

1. NFS BW-NFS and PC-NFS

I am having trouble mounting a file system on my linux box.  I have tried
to use either BW-NFS or PC-NFS on several PC's to mount a machine running
Linux (1.1.18).  I have portmapper running along with mountd , and either
PC-NFS or BW-NFS daemons.  

I try to map d: to a file system that is in my exports file and the PC hangs.
Has anyone seen this problem.  I am able to use telnet and ping from these
machines but NFS is not working.
