Hi, i have found that the ./policy process is using to much CPU and i am unable to stop it.

  PID  PPID USER     STAT   RSS %MEM CPU %CPU COMMAND
 2100     1 root     S     9512  0.9   1 47.1 ./policy
its is imposible for me to restart or terminate this process with the command "restart process"  since i cannot choose the policy process from the given options.

I wounder how can i restart this process without restarting the switch, also i would like to know if this behaviour is expected for this process as i have seen on other switches that i manage that the cpu usage is very low for this process.

Thank you.

Are you still having problems with high CPU usage?
Hi, Sorry for my late reply. I rebooted the switch and everything went back to normal. i have no idea why that process was using to much CPU.
