    I've said it before, but given these things creep up on us...

    Thought the site was being a bit 'laggy', opened a console and found my screen>glances session. Whilst not the root cause, it's a little pointer for a php/mysql app.

    This would be the third noisy vps on linode in 4 months, it's a 24gb one too, so not cheap overloading 1g ones.

    It really is driving me to the jaws of a dedicated. I'm not going to pipe it to another host with 40odd mins of downtime, it feels like it's an increasing issue, random too of course based on node distribution.

    Anyhow if you run a vps, run screen and glances too. This steal isn't shown on most of my other monitors, well free ones ;)

    probably a good correlation between folks choosing larger Linode VPS plans require and actually more likely to use up that cpu time.

    Interesting which linode datacenter ? top command also shows cpu steal = st field as does sar -u command with historical records ;)

    example Linode Singapore VPS's cpu steal for past 24hrs averaged = 3.38%
    Code (Text):
    sar -u | sed -e "s|$(hostname)|hostname|"
    Linux 4.9.15-x86_64-linode81 (hostname)         06/19/2017      _x86_64_        (1 CPU)

    Yes the correlation between larger boxes and more demanding users isn't unexpected. For some reason I thought they weren't over allocated too much though. Perhaps not based on last line.

    These figures are looking different in % terms though, this is in London.

    So are glances figures over-reporting? Meaning I can go back to being happy :)

    Sar will be more accurate as glances itself also has some what high overhead when running too

    But sar output by default is for last 24hrs you can read up on how to go back to specific time period or date around time of glances reported entries
