cpu spikes caused by pvesr / pvesm


Jan 20, 2022
Hi everyone,

since installing the latest updates (see below), my fans speed up every 15 minutes for some seconds. This did not happen before.
Using atop, I found <pvesr> and <pvesm> to be the cause, as they briefly bump CPU usage from a 2% average to more than 60%.

It's not a big deal for me, but I thought I'd report it anyway.
