  Can anyone please tell me what is /usr/bin/updatedb?. I noticed high IO wait on my linux  box for quite some time and when i tracked the problem i found that the process for command /usr/bin/updatedb is in state D for a  while. I believe  it's  related  to Berkeley DB. Any  suggestions

I think you may want to explore your man pages, especially those relating to: 'updatedb' and 'locate'
