    Normal CPU Usage


    I have posted a screen shot of my CPU usage.

    Is that normal when I am only running a running a vnc session and firefox.

    I am just curious that it seems to be a lot of cpu usage for having nearly nothing open.

    Hardware

    Dell T5500
    RHEL 6.2 64 bit os
    2.6.32-220.7.1
    2.28.2 gnome

    Intel Xeon Quad Core Processor N Series.

    What do you see when you run
    Code:
    top
    which should show you the culprit or culprits
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    VNC is pretty resource intensive. It looks like between VNC, firefox, and the rest of your system, you are consuming about 50% of available CPU. Whether or not that is excessive, that is TBD. I run an 8 core E5450 (Penryn CPU) system, and I can consume 50% or more of available processor cycles pretty easily when I am doing video processing, compiling, etc.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
