Buy now! If you're using the VNC connection then it may be running there, and the CPU utilization won't be inside the VM - it will be used up by the KVM process. it remains at 100%.

When both machines are completely logged out, the Linux machine uses 1% CPU, the Windows one 45-50%, according to top. And I don't wantto compile both libvirt and qemu-kvm from source since it is theproduction machine.http://forum.proxmox.com/threads/5770-Windows-guest-high-context-switch-rate-when-idlehttp://serverfault.com/questions/146922/why-is-idle-windows-vm-using-so-much-cpuOn 4/7/2013 5:18 PM, Banyan He wrote:Maybe you can print out what it is doing, then The system has the latest updates as of today, June 18, 2010.

If I start a VM with 2 virtual CPUs, the physical box uses 100% on each core. Qemu Kvm High Cpu Usage Comment 23 Nenad Opsenica 2010-04-12 06:03:03 EDT Similar problem happens to me with Centos 5.4 and Win XPpro VM on one of the hardware machines. I managed to reproduce it only once after reboot and it grubs CPU for only minute or two while i checking it and than returned to normal CPU usage. his explanation When jumping a car battery, why is it better to connect the red/positive cable first?

Comment 9 Dave Allan 2010-01-08 10:14:41 EST I've reproduced this behavior on up to date F12 x86_64. If the guest gives work to both the vcpus, both the threads will be active. Kvm Windows Guest High Cpu setting it back to sandybridge show the same behaviour. Qemu-kvm 100% Cpu Taskman takes about 1 or 2 % of the guest CPU, but there's no other processes taking up any CPU time.

One thing that will help ease the load is to start shutting down necessary services, such as the indexing service. sudo virsh > edit $vmname to do that. > no difference > How did you verify that the bug exists without the virtio drivers?

In short, simply starting the VM causes physical CPU utilization to jump to 100%. Boot to booloader menu -> physical CPU usage of qemu-kvm is > 95% 2.

I'm not suggesting this can not be a duplicate. you mean a kernel configuration within the guest (aka recompile ?) or a boot parameter within the guest ? Is it bad practice to use GET method as login username/password for administrators?

That could explain the 100% cpu usage at boot time. This forum thread claims that you can change the HAL layer with the boot media.
