100% CPU



  • Hi, i have this specs

    Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.00GHz
    2GIG RAM
    80GIG HD PATA
    4NIC - DLINK

    Captive Portal Enabled.
    3 WAN 1 LAN

    and it reaches 100% CPU, always 40-70% and sometimes 100%

    system –> advanced --> networking is OFF.

    top -S -H give me this ..

    PID USERNAME  PRI NICE  SIZE    RES STATE    TIME  WCPU COMMAND
      11 root      171 ki31    0K    8K RUN    85.7H 40.77% idle
      12 root      -68    -    0K  152K WAIT  484:11 11.38% {irq17: vr1}
      12 root      -28    -    0K  152K WAIT  189:06  5.18% {swi5: +}
      12 root      -68    -    0K  152K WAIT  173:34  4.20% {irq19: xl0 uhci1}

    How much traffic are you passing at that time?
    using top -SH is a better measure in my opinion. If you open an ssh session and run top -SH and then open the webGUI to view the dashboard you'll see the CPU usage go up considerably. I.e. simply viewing the dashboard on a system of that type uses CPU cycles. On my own low end P4 it uses quite a lot!

    Which options in System: Advanced: Networking:?
