kWorker running at 100% constantly


Dec 6, 2018
Cape Town, South Africa

A lot of people experiencing the kWorker running at 100% constantly, upgraded to a couple of different kernel versions especially "Linux 4.15.8-20-pve" but still doing the same. The main cause of this issue is when lxc is restarted.

We are in progress of testing PVE6 to see if the issue persists otherwise I will have to look into a different solutions.

An help will be much appreciated.

The problem should not occur with PVE 6.0 (which is based on a newer kernel) - If it does persist please report back!

I hope this helps!
