I am using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Having just transited from windows to Linux, I'm completely new to process and service management, in this OS. One or more processes frequently stack my CPU usage up high, sometimes even up-to 100%. This time i found that the process called Browser-process is acting culprit. I have attached the image of how it appears on System Monitor:1 Although the process still runs after i stopped, it now does not gulp down the CPU. Is it usual for a process to soak up all the resource as such?
My other concern is that the CPU usage is consistently always high when compared to windows based systems, where system used to be idle for extended periods with apparently "0" CPU usage. So, is that really what happens in windows?
