For some strange reason your Open Arena keeps spawning new processes such as one called AS. It's using excessive CPU.

It's still spawning this "as" process. Is it OpenArena doing this? If so, we may have to drop support for it.


anyone know?

Umm, are you using 64bit CPU?

Quad core Intel CPUs should be 64bit AFAIK. What's your operating system?

Intel stopped making ia32 CPUs, however, it doesn't matter if those chips are x86_64 or not if the admins did something silly like install an ia32 OS on top of them.

The only process that should be spawned by the servers is ioq3ded.

Yes, but 64bit version of ioq3 uses as for QVM processing.

It's a 64 bit OS -- CentOS 4.5.

For some reason this "AS" process keeps spawning and than leaving but it spikes with a high CPU.

This is the line used to run the server:

"ioq3ded.x86_64" )
serverpid=`ps auxw | grep $server_exec-$username | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}'`
if [ -z "$serverpid" ]; then
cd /home/$username/$game_directory/$server_mod_directory
cp *console*.log `date +%m%d%Y`_console.log
cd /home/$username/$game_directory
crontab /usr/bin/serverchk
rm -f nohup.out
rm -f $server_exec-$username
chmod 755 $server_exec
chmod 755 /home/$username/$game_directory/pb
cp $server_exec $server_exec-$username
nohup ./$server_exec-$username +set dedicated $server_dedicated +set ttycon 0 +set net_ip $server_ip +set net_port $server_port +set com_hunkmegs 256 +set sv_maxclients $server_sv_maxclients +set logfile $server_logfile +set fs_basepath /home/$username/$game_directory +set fs_homepath /home/$username/$game_directory +set sv_pure $server_sv_pure +set sv_punkbuster $server_sv_punkbuster +set fs_game $server_mod_directory +set $server_vm $misc +exec $server_config1 +exec $server_config2 & > /dev/null 2>&1

It uses: ioq3ded.x86_64

Do they recommend the 32 bit version instead?

If nothing else works, 32bit version is the best option. Could you post here console output from server startup? Don't forget to start some map or the log will be useless.

[root@gs1 home]# ps aux | grep 23045
817 23045 24.0 0.3 88936 85244 ? R 20:40 0:07 as -o /tmp/qagame.o_wfG3cM /tmp/qagame.s_tOCzZn
root 24152 0.0 0.0 51168 716 pts/0 R+ 20:41 0:00 grep 23045
[root@gs1 home]#

Finally caught it running. See that?
