I installed oracle Java 7 on Ubuntu 12.04 32bit. when i check my Internet bandwidth while do nothing on the Internet in system monitor->resource data is sent and received.

When i look in process tab only Java process is using CPU and increase its size. Why this process uploading and downloading data and how it can be solved.


Java is probably getting updated/upgraded. You can stop this process if you don't want java to be updated. By right-clicking on the process when in System Monitor and clicking on "Kill process".

If this does not stop java, open a terminal Ctrl+Alt+t and type the following:

sudo killall oracle-java*

This will kill all oracle-java processes on your system.

  • Thanks Jobin, i kill the process but it appears again after killing and start the same behavior. Is there any configuration to stop Java updates in Ubuntu. – Bahadar Ali Mar 25 '14 at 13:37
