I've got this process called 'onlyservice' that is using

this is one of the perl scripts used by logwatch to help parse logs
based on a set of configuration files in /etc/log.d/conf/services/.
If i understand the magic correctly, onlyservice will be called a
number of times as logwatch loops through the several individual
service config files. So i don't think its a big shock to see this
process reappear after you kill it since i think it gets run multiple
times. Why its chewing lots of cpu that i don't know. I'm seldom awake
when logwatch runs as part of the cron.daily scripts.
onlyservice is located in /etc/log.d/scripts/shared
and is owned by the logwatch package
