[K12OSN] Processor max'ed out

Is it possible with LTSP that a bad client NIC could cause such a thing,
I know they can bring an entire network to its knees if one starts
pumping out bad packets.  Maybe try bringing up terminals one at a time
and see if any certain one causes a larger jump in usage?

'top' should show you the processes that are consuming the most CPU.
