I am using aws server r4.4xlarge and allocated more than 60GB to database only still i am facing issue of high cpu usage.

I have around 10 big table each of approximate size of 18GB with integer primary key. all tables are innodb and I have optimised the innodb also by adding this to default config file.

innodb_buffer_pool_size=60G #(max 60 % of your Memory if and only if Memory >= 8G)
innodb_log_file_size=15G #(min 25% of innodb_buffer_pool_size)
innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit=2

also while debugging in mysql i have doubt on some query but still i want mariadb utilise instance properly. most of process in sleep state but some are in query state for quite long period.

I need suggestion regarding should i have to still optimise some thing, get best out of mariadb.

200% isn't a lot of CPU when you have 16 cores. 200% is two full cores (amongst the 16 you have in an r4.4xlarge). Considering the amount of memory you have in use, MariaDB is certainly up to something. The fact that you are only using 2 of your 16 cores, I'd say you were under utilising CPU.

Use the htop utility to better see mariaDB's use of the cores.

There was a bug https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-15016 . That bug got fixed. Use latest version (10.2.13, 10.3.5) and verify everything is OK again.
