I have a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G, and for few days my battery drains as hell. I checked the running processes, and found that the cause is mdnsd.

Is there a way to find which app calls this process to run?

Not permament solution, but so far the best solution.

On rooted phone :

  1. use ES File Explorer (or any File Explorer with Root access)
  2. go to device/system/bin
  3. select the mdnsd file
  4. open properties
  5. open permissions
  6. uncheck the execute permissions enter image description here

În my case it was Xiaomi's Uniplay Service, which I've frozen, rebooted and the simptom went away. You have to be rooted to be able to disable or uninstall Xiaomi apps and services.
