my Service Self/ide is alarming using Argus-3.3_RC-20040312.  top shows one
of the argusd processes taking about 100% of my cpu0, and none of my cpu1

Is there any good debugging i can do to find out why argusd is taking so
much CPU?

I am graphing Self/idle as per  It shows
~90% idle... should the title of this graph and yvalue be "percent not idle"

debugging Self/idle shows:
      srvc::reason SELF TEST less than min
      srvc::result 11.5655998585034

I stopped and started argus, and it is behaving more correctly now (taking
3% of cpu0), although since this will likely happen again, hints are
