We have a really weird thing where by a particular file occasionally wont stop processing.
This process chews up RAM and then load spikes and brings the server to it's knees.
We simply can't work out what the issue is.
Is there something we can run that periodically check to see if any processes have been going for > N minutes and then kills them?
We have set timeouts etc but they don't affect this random issue for some weird reason.
Thanks in advance.
