Just got an email from one of servers warning me about excessive resource usage:
Time: Wed Sep 24 05:21:12 2014 -0500 Account: val Resource: Process Time Exceeded: 1844 > 1800 (seconds) Executable: /bin/bash Command Line: -bash PID: 21234 (Parent PID:21233) Killed: No
I was confused, because everything I was doing there ran smoothly and quickly – no scripts hanging or something like that.
Then I realized I could run `top` to see whether the process (I had its PID) is still there.
It was. It was my bash session. Server was notifying me that my terminal session was using resources excessively – by simply staying connected to the server.
