"High" idle CPU usage since upgrade to Stretch

Postby nine99 » 2017-11-09 18:10

Hello guys,

I have a simple Proxmox host, that runs several virtual machines with Debian and since the upgrade from Jessie to Stretch, I am experiencing a weird issue:
The total CPU load on the host was quite low around 1% while idle, nowadays it is at 6%. It isn't a critical "oh my god I need more power", more like a "What happened?" kind of issue.

I still have one Jessie VM that still has a low idle CPU load (0.2%), all other debian machines are running on stretch and show an idle CPU load of 1.5-2%, looking like this:


Again... I am complaining on a high level here, but what could be the issue? I don't run any more services or alike than before upgrading to stretch.

Thank you for your help, and sorry for my english. It's not my mother tongue :) .

You can probably use top/conky to see which processes are running and consuming the cpu, first of all.
