Systemd-journal is using a lot of CPU. How can I fix this?
I find my linode using 100% cpu, and the top results is following:
%CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND 88.4 2.1 8:45.92 systemd-journal 1.7 2.9 0:00.35 apache2 1.7 1.3 0:00.05 apache2 1.3 3.4 0:02.24 apache2 1.3 2.8 0:01.65 apache2 1.3 2.3 0:00.20 apache2 1.0 5.6 0:00.95 apache2 0.7 2.8 0:00.77 apache2
Would you please help me to debug this?
There can be a few reasons for this. The fact that systemd-journal is the main process using up your processor could mean your Linode is attempting to write too fast.
To investigate this, you can use the following command:
The output of that command should give you a better idea of what the root cause of the problem may be. I hope this helps point you in the right direction!
