Unknown process wasting resources - "eventdaemon"

Hello Together,

I'm asking if anybody knows anything about a process named "eventdaemon". This daemon wastes a lot of resources of this system. I also checked some other systems and on every machine this daemon exists, but with processor time of 0:00. After searching a couple of hours I couldn't find any answers. So I would be glad if anybody could open my eyes :-)

Thanks in advance,
Jörg

Re: Unknown process wasting resources - "eventdaemon"

eventdaemon is a kernel process. It it is using that much resources, something must be wrong?
