Subject SS 1.0 on Solaris SPARC
Author robert_difalco
Very occasionally, we find that our server (when seemingly doing
nothing -- maybe sweeping?) will peg the CPU at near 100%. It will not
relinquish its grip on the CPU until we restart FB. Doing so returns
the system back to normal with no ill effects. What is odd is that
there are no operations in progress when this happens. Odd, hu?

Am I alone in this or has this ever been experienced by anyone before?

It seems very much like what happens when I inadvertantly write some C
code that infinitely recurses. :)
