Default Timestamp keeps incrementing on server

I uploaded an executable to my host. The program generates a web page, takes in post data and writes it to sqlite database. I screwed up and put it into a loop where it writes continuously, adding records to the db. The db is embedded in my program.

I ssh into the host but ps doesn't show anything running. My host says nothing is either and there are no zombies. I deleted the program and the db but there is a journal file that keeps getting its timestamp updated. So something must be running to cause that right?

Any ideas while I wait for them to get back to me?

lsof can shed some light on which process is writing to the file.

# lsof /journal/file/here

That's a start -- it will give you command and PID (and some other info).

It's installed by default on most GNU/Linux systems, and can be installed from ports on FreeBSD. (Also, there is fstat on FBSD.)

Well, the problem went away, for some reason. I couldn't even delete the file till now.
