Intel i5-7200U Kaby Lake. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

2 of my 4 processing cores are 100% loaded, even if no processes are running. The load can pass on other cores, but there is always two 100% loaded cores. The issue occurred recently. There is no such issue on Windows 10 on the exact same PC (see screenshots). Maybe there was some update (e.g. to fix Meltdown or Spectre), which loads my CPU.

Please advise.

  • Yes, I already looked. All processes show 0% CPU usage. – Alex Savenko May 11 '18 at 9:00
  • I also looked in top command. It seems that some systemd command consumes the CPU time. Please see the following log: 2008 root 20 0 584716 19648 10868 S 200.0 0.1 73:37.85 systemd – Alex Savenko May 11 '18 at 9:10
  • Figured out that it was a crypto miner built in game 2048 (downloaded from Ubuntu Software). Created an issue by this link: github.com/canonical-websites/snapcraft.io/issues/651 Here is the log of the command sudo lsof -p 2008 -n: pastebin.com/spH358jC If you know some better way to report the issue, please adives. – Alex Savenko May 12 '18 at 4:58
