I have a Linux process that is consuming 100% cpu, and "kill -9 pid" doesn't work.
This is somewhat similar to: http://serverfault.com/questions/43534/how-to-kill-processes-unresponsive-to-kill-9
But I'm sure that the pid is not changing, and this is the parent processes. I don't think it is waiting on NFS.
Could excessive network traffic cause such behavior? Any other ideas what could cause the process to get stuck like this, and what I can do about it except rebooting?
