I have a server with 12 Cores Intel XEON CPU, and 128GB RAM. The server is dedicated, not a vps.
root@xx:~# lsb_release -d Description: Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS
At random times the CPU is going to 100% to all cores and even in htop i don't see a process more than 4-5%
Check this image:
Also is that a bit strange? Look at
Tasks: 1071, 33 thr; 350 running
What is the 350 running? Because when my CPU is going to 100% that number is going to 350, but when the CPU is normal
it only says 2 Running
