[Techtalk] klogd using 99% CPU

I rebooted the machine and it still had the problem. But a friend of mine
had me restart syslog something, and I haven't had the problem since (that I
know of).

When it was having the problem, it didn't appear to be writing to any logs
that I could find.

I'll have to wait and see if it happens again.

What state does it show it's in when you do a ps auxww? Does it happen
every time? Do the logs say anything about it? What else is running that
could be causing it to use a lot of CPU?

What would cause klogd to suddenly start using all my CPU cycles?

A search on google suggest I should just update to a newer version, and
other links points to some problem with the 3c59x ethernet driver (which
is what I think I have).

But this machine has been running for a year or more without this
problem, and I have another machine with the same hardware and Linux
distribution that doesn't have this problem.

Where do I start looking for the apparent sudden cause?
