Sometimes jetty loads our server for 100% - every thread for 100% of 1 core.

enter image description here

We have jetty 9 and JDK 1.7 (at Jetty 6 and JDK 1.7 - this doesn't appears).
Jetty now running on default settings, previously we run it with JAVA_OPTIONS="-Xms4096m -Xmx4096m -server -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC"

I maked the dump of main thread (with jstack -F pid), but this gives me nothing (i just don't understand). DUMP

Is there some way to determine what process/project loading the CPU?

The only thing I see in that thread dump is a few threads doing some copying and archiving looks like. A series of thread dumps taken over a few seconds and minutes would give you an idea of it is those threads behaving badly. Nothing looks immediately out of place jetty wise in that dump.

The problem was at the one of the project - it makes infinite loop when some specific options accurs.
