I'm ICT coordinator at a high school and I'm running a Plex server on an Ubuntu 16.04 machine in VMware. This one runs flawlessly.
However, we're moving our servers to a data center, so I'm setting up a Plex server there. I have installed everything on a HyperV machine in the data center. This is my set-up:
I'm testing the server and I noticed some strange things. While I'm doing nothing at the Ubuntu Machine, only accessing it via xrdp/RDP:
There's a file in
/tmpthat grows at a rate of about 10GB per hour. I have no idea which process is responsible for this. (it's the big one: dup-e7e7...)
KSysGuard shows an almost constant CPU usage of over 30%
KSysGuard also shows a constant stream of incoming network traffic at a rate of about 5MiB/s
I'm currently running an identical Plex server on a VmWare setup and I don't have any of these problems there; this one has been running flawlessly for over 4 months now.
Any thoughts on what could be the problem or on how I could find what's causing this?
auditctl, no results...
Thanks in advance!
