Since monday, after installing proxmox last updates on our node, we encounter processor usage problems: processer is in use at 50 - 90% according to the VM, but only 20% according to VM's proxmox summary.

I have also installed last updates today on the node, but the problem still exist.

CPU(s) 8 x Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz (1 Socket)
Kernel Version Linux 4.15.18-12-pve #1 SMP PVE 4.15.18-35 (Wed, 13 Mar 2019 08:24:42 +0100)

What can I do ?

How much running VM cores do you have on this Server?
Which version was the version before the upgrade?
