[Bug 721896] Re: kswapd0 100% cpu usage
I've been seeing this issue for almost a year now on an Asus Ultrabook
(Core i5, 4GB RAM, SSD). I installed and ran 13.04 until two weeks ago,
when I in-place upgraded to 13.10 (not a re-install). I've been seeing
kswapd go crazy anywhere between weekly and daily, inevitably forcing a
reboot every time.

kswapd0 100% cpu usage
Status in The Linux Kernel:
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
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.
