I have a 12.04 LTS server. 2 x XEON E5-2620v2 processors.

I run same program on each processor. after some days, the second processor seems to be in error status. ( I monitor them with turbostat and get this:)

As you can see the second processor, some CPU(6/18/7/19/8) is very busy but some others(20/21/11) nearly has nothing to do. And have a look at the first processor, It has an even CPU load.

what wrong with it? its a CPU hardware issue or a ubuntu issue ?
