Last night at 7 PM I migrated to an Atom machine to conserve energy costs and installed 3.5.0
Since then as you can see from the attached daily 5min CPU load chart, the load is horisontal at about 15%. Previously it spiked up and down.
Makes me wonder if there is a problem with CPU load reporting on this new version.
Last Zeroshell releases better use multicores system by distributing hardware interrupts on all cores. This result in a lower system load. In addition the last releases report in the system load graphic the value LOADAVG/CORES*100 and not LOADAVG*100 as in the past. In any case, your system load graphics is strange because the graphic is too uniform. Probably something is not working correctly in MRTG.
Yes, this is an Atom with HT on so would be treated as multi-core system I guess.
Since posting I restored another slightly different backup of the original profile (it only had a bit more VPN setup, like another user/certs added), nothing major. Since activation of that restored profile CPU load fell and is now near 0% with some spikes that make sense.
