Hi, guys

I have a problem with that process

Right now for droplet in Memory tab it looks like:

fider 156.58 %

postgres 6.35 %

php 5.80 %

mysqld 4.22 %

php-fpm5.6 2.69 %

dockerd 2.56 %

docker-containe 2.52 %

and it constantly growing.

When I trying top command in cli I can't find this process.

I found something similar but it consume not 156% of memory

15051 root 20 0 14712 5160 3556 S 0.3 0.1 0:00.11 ./fider ping

29884 root 20 0 15608 5252 3696 S 0.3 0.1 0:00.04 ./fider ping

31218 root 20 0 15608 5360 3820 S 0.3 0.1 0:00.09 ./fider ping

Does anybody know what doing this process and why it is growing?

I found something, and there is a plenty of this processes of this three types and I think It is growing for some reasons.

999 5768 0.0 0.1 288288 9248 ? Ss Sep12 0:00 postgres: fider fider 172.18.0.2(37632) idle in transaction
root 842 0.0 0.1 16120 9120 ? Sl 07:44 0:00 ./fider ping
root 32743 0.0 0.0 1532 4 ? Ss 07:40 0:00 /bin/sh -c ./fider ping

I found the problem. It was one of the docker container that generate ping to another container. It happened after the server reload docker just run it's containers. And 'fider' process was a container named after Fider service.
