I've seen this issue has been common in this forum and the advice always seems to relate to patch levels. However, I am using SLES10SP3/OES2SP2 and have it fairly current on patches. I tend to wonder if there might be something else going on here if I can be that current and still suffer from the same issue people have been complaining about for several years and versions.

To be clear, my NRM is flatlined at 99% with absolutely no dips. TOP has plenty of ups and downs but mostly stays in the single digits of CPU utilization. I have restarted novell-httpstkd but the flatline resumes immediately afterward.

Does anyone know what the solution to this problem is?
