Description OpenShift BugZilla Robot 2021-10-13 13:16:52 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #2013321 +++

Description of problem:
The fix for rhbz#1979352 introduced the [scheduler] plug-in as a standard part of openshift TuneD profiles. Unfortunately, the [scheduler] plug-in can be very CPU intensive, especially on the OpenShift platform. The bug for this issue is tracked by rhbz#1921738.  The CPU utilization of the TuneD process can be around 1% of one core.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install OCP
2. Watch tuned process utilization either via top -p <pid> or just by querying /proc/<pid>/status

Actual results:
~1% of CPU

Expected results:
~0% of CPU
