The System User Monitor detection policy has reported hogging an AIX system.
100% of the CPU used for 5 min.
Due to the size of the AIX groups and user file, computer resources, etc., multiple instances of the user_monitor.sh exist at a given time.
However, the script is not designed to handle that condition. Please note that when there are multiple instances of the user_monitor.sh
process running at the same time, every user in the passwd file is considered as a new entry.
The user_monitor.sh script was modified to resolve this issue. All versions at 5.2.4 and above, contain this fix.
