Furthermore, how do I find average CPU usage on Linux?
- CPU Utilization is calculated using the 'top' command. CPU Utilization = 100 - idle time. Eg:
- idle value = 93.1. CPU Utilization = ( 100 - 93.1 ) = 6.9%
- If the server is an AWS instance, CPU usage is calculated using the formula: CPU Utilization = 100 - idle_time - steal_time.
Similarly, why is Linux CPU usage so high? Common causes for high CPU utilization Resource issue – Any of the system resources like RAM, Disk, Apache etc. can cause high CPU usage. System configuration – Certain default settings or other misconfigurations can lead to utilization issues. Bug in the code – An application bug can lead to memory leak etc.
Additionally, how can CPU usage be over 100?
By default, top displays CPU usage as a percentage of a single CPU. On multi-core systems, you can see percentages of CPU usage are greater than 100%. You can toggle this behavior by hitting Shift + i while top is running to show the overall percentage of available CPUs in use.
