If we stop dcserver and tomcat, the cpu usage goes down to normal.
How we solve this problem ?
I thougt it depends on an java error with ntp (leap second),
but stopping ntp brings no solution.
We deleted all the audit logs on the extra partition.
Then the cpu usage was going down to normal.
We check our export audit settings, maybe they are more than once in our firewall systems...
