Dnsmasq causing high cpu load


I regularly encounter the following command to cause 99% cpu load in longer periods of time, and I’m starting to wonder if this is some misconfiguration/bug or the like.

/usr/bin/dnsmasq -k --enable-dbus --user=dnsmasq --pid-file

It is rather annoying as it is obviously is causing fans to spin at full speed.

Is it normal? If not, what could be the cause and a fix to it?
