Load is high after compute reboot

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • We noticed that load is higher for compute that have rebooted compared to other compute that have not. See CPU_load_1min.jpg graph for example. Compute NOVA003 and NOVA004 were rebooted as part of a failover exercice. What can explain that the load is that high when they go back online and that it stays like that. Load was relatively low before reboot.
