PFSENSE Processes running extremely high


Was wondering if I should be concerned that my processes are running over 100%? My CPU usage graph on the dashboard is very low, however the processes usage on the monitoring graph are running around 188%. I am very new to pfsense and searched around, but couldn’t find anything. Any input welcome. Using a new Protectli device to run pfsense.

Looks like absolute time is being measured and not percentage

Have something similar but on the dashboard I have 10% cpu utilisation with pfsense running fine.

Hi ,

hunted down to /var/db/rrd/
PROCS=ps uxaH | wc -l | awk '{print $1;}'

number of processes on system , not really sure of the usefullness in mixing it with the other cpu metrics , it skews the graph …
