Is there a way to start a process so that memory and CPU usage can be
tracked closely enough to determine what the cause of 100% CPU use would
be? I've got a box, recently installed 6.2 RELEASE with xorg 7.3
installed, and when X is started, CPU goes to 100% and stays there.
Here's the bad machine
1510 pauls 1 0 0 277M 7076K rdnrel 0 13:41 100.05% Xorg
Here's my desktop
868 root 1 96 0 202M 134M select 119:09 0.00% Xorg
As you can see, memory and CPU use is sky high on the "bad" box. Rather
than blow it away and reinstall, I'd like to try to figure out what's
wrong and fix it. What utilities could I use to do that?
