I am using the Drupal Feeds module to download the feeds from an external site. I have setup a dedicated content type to pull the feeds and then created nodes of another content type for the individual feed items.
After updating the site recently I noticed that the site was using the CPU continuously so much so that the hosting tech support notified me about it.
I proceeded to limit the frequency with which the feeds were being pulled but the CPU usage remained constant and I was finally forced to disable cron.php.
This never happened before the update.
Checking the dblog I noticed that the JobScheduler initiated the feed pull (I had set the watchdog to print the title of each node being created) and was repeating this scenario every minute 24x7.
I have not figured out what is causing this issue or from where to start?
Any possible solutions guys?
Site runs on Drupal 6.
