I'm running an HP Pavillion dv5000 series notebook with FC9.
Every night at various times I notice that my CPU is working its ass off, and I top to see "perl" listed about 10 times. When I "ps -ef | grep perl" I get a bunch of output pertaining to logwatch. Usually its stuff ending in onlyservice or removeservice. I've looked around a bit and know what logwatch is, but I don't really understand why it's necessary for me on my laptop. Where can I see the logs it generates? Does it actually produce something that might be helpful? Is there some way to turn it off if I don't want it raping my CPU at random times? When I login as root there are no crontabs, not sure if that is what I should be looking under, but I pretty much just don't know what the hell it's doing.
Would appreciate any insight.
