I have a running EC2 instance on amazon AWS. and some time server gives me the memory maximum utilization above 97%.

When i saw my server stats on newrelic That showed me the below running processes and their memory usage, i can see that python is taking too much memory, while i have no application running with python, then why python is taking too much memory, What might be the issue, should i stop python process or this may effect the server, or any other solution, or this is normal and i keep it as it. enter image description here

    You need to figure out what the python process is doing. Tools like ps, lsof, and fuser can help. Apr 24 '13 at 15:40
  • ps aux | grep python will show the full command that is running with python, see what's the path for python script
