I have a CentOS 6 VM running on Win2012 Hyper-v server. This server has 12 processers, 60GB memory, Raid-5 SSD. There's nothing running on the server yet, but it has very high cpu interrupts, always 12K. Is this normal?

====Update===

It looks that one cpu give 1K interrupts.

I changed the cpu to 2, then it shows about 2000 interrupts

then I changed the cpu to 8, it shows about 8000 interrupts

It seems that this is normal.
