comment tar gzip slowing down server
I tried chrt but it didn't change the slowness. But I learned another Linux architecture detail. Thanks anyway.

It was an IO problem! I solved the problem using a faster disk/controller.

comment tar gzip slowing down server
It's kvm/qemu virtual machine. The host is an XEON 8 cores but the guest VM has just one core available. The machine is very fast. With 50 active users, the CPU never get 10%. The only exception is the damn gzip :(

Thanks Mlfe. It seems interesting. But the server is always running something. Is it possible that tar/gzip never wake up and routine keeps running "ad eternum" ?

Thanks for replying Mircea. But when I issue a top, gzip is at 95% CPU. Is this not a measure that the problem is on CPU ? How can I measure the IO ?
