Dashboard overuse cpu



  • Hi everyone,
    about a week ago I noticed an excessive use of the CPU when I accessed the dasboard.
    By checking better I noticed some processes use the cpu periodically in a strange way, these processes I think are the widgets, but before this week it didn't happen and besides I didn't change anything.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hmm, that does seem excessive, unless each of those cores is running at 100MHz or something!

    What widgets do you have on the dashboard?

    That looks like it's from the firewall logs widget. Are you logs files set to a huge size?

    Thank you, finally after cleaning the system logs and those of pfblocker the use of the cpu is back to normal.
