OS: Debian Linux, Bullseye (testing)
Netdata version: v1.31.0-56-nightly
CPU: VPS, with 3 cores of an E5-2680 v2 (2.8Ghz)
apps.plugin, as well as the
netdata executable itself, are taking a large amount of CPU power on one of my machines, on average around 8-9% for apps.plugin and 4-5% for Netdata itself:
This seems excessive, given the very low CPU usage I’ve seen in the past. This is problematic because this VPS has “fair use” CPU and only has 33% CPU dedicated (that is, I can use one core constantly, and have occasional spikes of usage higher than that), and Netdata is taking quite a big chunk of that.
On another one of my systems,
apps.plugin only takes 0.7% CPU and Netdata itself only takes 1%. The configuration is very similar on that machine.
How should I debug this?
CPU usage should not be this high.
