Solr runs automatically and hangs the system



We have Confluence 6.9.1 installed in our server, it's been running fine from last few years.

Suddenly we started observing system hangs and loads keep going high.

issue is caused by this solrd.

It's nothing to do with Confluence.  Confluence doesn't use solr natively.

Someone has set solr up to run as the confluence user.

Please check why 'solr' is hiding in a directory (/tmp/.solr) - the dot means directory is hidden when listing, for example using 'ls' without further parameters.

Or in other words: please make sure if there is no malicious activity on the server - while this is Atlassian community and we're mainly dealing with Atlassian products I just wanted to mention from your picture the system looks not healty. Just make sure it is not hacked.
