'gs' command at 100% CPU

Question asked by sistemi@yacme.com on Jul 25, 2016
Hi everybody, I am noticing in my Alfresco 4.2.e installed on Ubuntu Server 12.04 that I have 3 processes "gs" launched by "alfresco" user that load CPU at 100%. Here is the complete line of one of these from "top":

8020 alfresco  20   0 65604  20m  852 R   73  0.3 506:51.42 gs


and from "ps auxw":


alfresco  8020 99.7  0.2  65604 21024 ?        R    09:43 507:01 gs -q -dQUIET -dSAFER -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -dNOPROMPT -dMaxBitmap=500000000 -dAlignToPixels=0 -dGridFitTT=2 -sDEVICE=pngalpha -dTextAlphaBits=4 -dGraphicsAlphaBits=4 -r72x72 -dFirstPage=1 -dLastPage=1 -sOutputFile=/tmp/magick-8015-XrwxVBGVCsP%d -f/tmp/magick-8015-HCk6ynUfxaP -f/tmp/magick-8015CuZMgtntOxSO


If I try to manually kill that process, it respawns automatically.
As user alfresco I tried to launch "gs" command, but I receive "command not found": do I have to install gs for Alfresco user?
