[Bug 721896] Re: kswapd0 100% cpu usage


Running fresh Ubuntu 13.10 on a new Macbook Air, I'm facing this

My user home is encrypted, maybe it is related?! When I open too many
sites with Firefox, kswapd0 goes "crazy", with Google Chrome, it does
not happen that much.

BTW, this problem persist since middle of 2011 ???

Should I call Linus?!  lol  Kidding...

Bug description:
  After the running the latest ubuntu for at least 2 weeks, I've noticed that kswapd0 started using 100% CPU on one of my cores.
  However, I have enough of RAM and not using swap (Swap: 11876344k total,    62336k used).

  The only thing I can do to remove the problem is reboot the system.
  I'm using Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS server version without any kernel modifications.
