the agetty process manages your non-graphical terminals (the stuff you
get to when hitting ctrl+alt+F1 (to F7)) and manages the login command
on them (the propt where you type in your username and password)

it is definitely not related to any spinning cursor you see and you
should also not kill the agetty processes if you want to keep a
functional console login.
