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.
RHEL 6.2 64 bit os
Intel Xeon Quad Core Processor N Series.
What do you see when you run which should show you the culprit or culprits
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.
