Hi

We are using cloud based Red hat 5.5 Tikanga OS. 
After installing the ntp (ntp-4.2.2p1-15.el5_7.1
and starting the ntpd process I can see multiple processes are running.

I can see processesare adding after every hour,
Below is a snapshot,
[root at sandbox2 subsys]# ps -eaf | grep ntpd
ntp      25589     1  0 15:05 ?        00:00:00 ntpd -u ntp:ntp -p /var/run/ntpd.pid -g
root     30021     1  0 16:00 ?        00:00:00 /sbin/ntpd -c 'timeout 1000' -c sysinfo -c sysstats -c peers


Syslogs are as below,
