Issue:
CPU time by seosd is increased constantly and system freezes on stopping PIM after that.
 
Environment:
PIM 12.8 SP1 / AIX
Cause:
When seosd becomes unresponsive and  seosd shutdown is triggered either by watchdog or manually, the threads ( main thread and thread which is trying to shutdown seosd) gets locked up as one of the thread has gone unresponsive.
Resolution:
This is fixed by T6FJ006 that contains single threaded seosd.

The workaround is to start seosd with single threaded mode by following command instead of seload.
# seosd -suppressthreading &
