cpu usage shows 100% using top [answered]

asked 2014-08-05 18:21:58 +0300

my phone is heating up while charging. two times. I open the terminal and run top command. The user nemo is running at 100%-99% CPU I unplug the charger, the process is still there. I reboot, the max cpu utilization is now 2.0% while keeping the top command running, I plug back in the charger. the cpu is still pretty low. I don't know what's that process? any idea is it related to charging?

Which process is causing the 100%? I had same issue before last mitaakuluu updat. It causes 100% load after some time, not relevant if charger connected or not.

Maybe you can use htop which also has an application icon for direct access

You still can use a simple top to see which app cause 100% cpu, just rotate your phone to landscape to see the names of processes ;)

There is an app available in the store called 'Crest' (and another one called 'Lighthouse') which shows the running processes. In the Crest app you will need to select 'Apps only: off' in the pulley menu to show all running processes. Then you can see which process is running at 100% CPU.
