Ubuntu running under Hyper-V with high load RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running a VM for Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS under Hyper-V and with no web server or any other public server installed, the system load is 1.0

    The VM is using a 75GB fixed VHD on its own partition (the hard drive is using raid 0).

    Is this normal for running a linux OS under Hyper-V?

    Here's what top shows (i restarted the vm for fresh numbers, but it still shows a load of 1.00 even after its been running for a day):

    top - 16:58:17 up 23 min,  1 user,  load average: 1.00, 0.58, 0.24
    Tasks: 235 total,   1 running, 234 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
    Cpu(s):  0.0%us,  0.0%sy,  0.0%ni, 98.8%id,  1.0%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.2%si,  0.0%st
    Mem:   4040336k total,   870384k used,  3169952k free,    13232k buffers
    Swap:  7812092k total,        0k used,  7812092k free,   225396k cached

    The host OS is running Windows 2012 R2 and it too isint running anything else that would put a lot of load on the server.
