I have just installed v 2.3 and on the system dash board it constantly show one of my cpu over 95% and other over 65%. When i check ntop it shows following..

Tasks: 134 total,   1 running, 133 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
Cpu(s):  7.7%us,  1.2%sy,  0.0%ni, 91.2%id,  0.0%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.0%si,  0.0%st
Mem:   2064748k total,   255724k used,  1809024k free,    23244k buffers
Swap:   530136k total,        0k used,   530136k free,    94672k cached

I tried rrdfix and it returns the cursor back in 2 seconds. I also tried "echo 1 > /sys/module/processor/parameters/max_cstate" but nothing happened!!
Is there a problem with gui reporting or ntop is showing wrong statics??

I have the same problem.
I have 512 MB of RAM, a CPU of 3.2 Ghz and this must to be more than enough!!.
I deactivated all antivirus check, antispam and any content filter.....and off course, no traffic monitoring.

But when i tried to access through VPN (OpenVPN), the CPU usage is around 100% and the are many errors that packet can't be decrypted and so on. All problems derived from the high ratio of CPU usage.

I execute rrdfix.sh but it takes no time to execute (so fast).
Any ideas?

Now i thinking to downgrade to 2.1 version.......
Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.

Yes, it was the first thing i did.

It shows a 0.3% User consume and a 8.3% Sys consume, and the toppest program is openvpn with an average of 16%.
Next, but with an average of 1% is collectd (?).

But, when i display  the system grafics with the gui it shows a cpu charge of 70% and high.
What happend?

I have resolve the cuestion but there is something  strange.

I enabled the VPN Firewall and the CPU usage drop down to 2%.

The strange thing is, before i enabled the VPN Firewall, when there was low usage of users, i could connect to the network (using a high ratio of CPU).......and i think that there should not be possible if i didn't configure the VPN firewall rules, like i did now.

I hope this can help anybody.
