yum-updatesd occupying memory and bandwith

When you install CentOs, you have to pay attention to this process yum-updatesd.
It manages updates od OS autonomously, but due to a bug not fixed, it could occupy memory, cpu and bandwith depending of the operations it is doing.
So, because I am an old style system administrator, I prefer to disable this process and its Micro$oft's style behavior.
To do this, it requires these two commands
 chkconfig --del yum-updatesd  
 kill -9 [pid_of_process]  

Easy but useful.
