I bring up a PPP connection to school to transfer a few files. U of T wraps
all login and FTP requests with an identd probe.
I notice that login and FTP requests take ~20 seconds to connect. Also:
PID TT STAT TIME COMMAND
157 ?? R 2:39.36 identd -w -t60 -l -o -e -N
163 ?? R 1:39.40 identd -w -t60 -l -o -e -N
Is it normal for identd to consume over a minute of CPU time? Only two identd
probes were made as far as I know. I can turn on logging in my firewall to
make sure. And why two processes?
