We use a VM/server as the jump box to our other servers, it holds all the RSA keys. I keep getting alerts that the CPU is over 75% from VMware. We run 3 bash scripts on there - just general checking to the DB's and perforce. I had noticed when I looked into top, it had a high niceness CPU and system CPU.
I was just wondering, is there any way I can bring them down and hopefully bring down the overall CPU so I don't get the alarms from VMware? I'm not too sure on what to look into on how to do this.
