Is there an application for OS X that will let me view what parent process is launching bzip2? It randomly opens up and eats a massive amount of CPU so it sorta lags the computer. I'm not sure what's causing it so in order to figure out, I wanted something like Process Explorer but for mac where I get a tree-type view of the running processes so I can determine what its parent process is.
Okay I discovered that there is a All Process, Hierarchically sorting mode which does just that. It seems bzip2 is being launched by newsyslog. Any thoughts on this?
