Well,mine was a combination.
I have a little box with a 1.5Ghz C-7 processor that runs as my NAT
box and fileserver. I had to dump some files to it recently from a USB
drive, and noticed that it was pinging. I discovered that it was
running "hot" with around 98% CPU utilization.
In addition to my normal running processes, the excess was mainly
rsync, ntfs-3g, and probably the software MD syncing up all that new
data too. The NTFS part was noticable though, between 20-30%
utilization at times.
