How can I solve high CPU usage, 100%, all the time, on OpenERP v7 running on Ubuntu 12.04 x64?

Hi Community,

I am running V7, installed on Ubuntu 12.04 x64 server hosted by Digital Ocean.

I am experiencing high CPU usage averaging 99%, all the time. As a result, the system is slow and unresponsive at all times.

I have increased the server infrastructure to 4 cores with 8gb RAM but the performance remains the same.

This happens with only a single user logged into the system! – so user volume is not the issue.

Has anyone experienced this problem? And is there a solution?

The goal is to run with approximately 500 – 1000 users so I am concerned if the system cannot cope with one user.

I don't know how to start troubleshooting but I can tell you that your CPU usage is way too high compared to production systems that I manage. For a single user, I never see it go above 16% and that's for a single core machine.

This is not an inssue of OpenERP V7. I am 100% sure.

Check with ubuntu command  'top' and figure out which enexpect process is working.

Or resetup al the things. Hope you not created unwated cron jobs.

Talk to VPS provider.
