zed process using fully 1core all the time. But no ZFS !

Today I noticed a zed -F process consuming 100% of a core all the time.
The main problem is that I don't use ZFS on my server !

It seems to have started 1 or 2 weeks ago.

Could I remove this package ? Is it normal ?

Version pve 5.1.

if you don't use ZFS on your server, you don't need to have zfs-zed installed at all.. it will show this behaviour if you use a 0.7.x version of the ZFS userspace utilities with a 0.6.5.x kernel module.
