Folks,

on some occasions, top goes amiss and reports the same crazy CPU usage for a bunch of processes (see attached screenshot). Did someone else experience this?

PS: that's on 12.2-RELEASE

Haven't seen anything like that. But the percentage is calculated based on the number of cores the machine has too, how many cores does this system have? It might screw up the calculations with a high number of cores.

Try sysutils/htop is it showing correctly?
I'll try. But it's only transient. It lasts only one refresh cycle, then the display goes back to normal. So it's not a major snag, it's just disturbing (and probably indicative of a bug somewhere).

No, not today with threadrippers that have a whole lot more ;)
At least something not impacted by the Covid-19 crisis :p :p
