checkpoint gateways is R77.30 with JHFA 216 in ClusterXL H/A mode. Just today, both gateways have high CPU and monitord is the root cause. the /var/log/db file on both gateways is about 130MB.

I went ahead and apply the fix as mentioned in sk93587 as follows:

tellpm process:monitord
rm -f /var/log/db
tellpm process:monitord t

CPU has returned to normal; however, I notice that the /var/log/db file is empty for the past 10 hours.

I repeated the following commands without much success:

tellpm process:monitord
tellpm process:monitord t

the file is still 0 byte:

ls -l /var/log/db
-rw-rw---- 1 admin root 0 Mar 13 23:21 /var/log/db

I can clearly see the monitord in running:

admin 21894 5707 0 23:27 ? 00:00:00 /bin/monitord

I am at lost here. Thoughts?
