You mean all the time, or only during heavy load?
On my system ext2fs sometimes gets into a state where it starts using
very much CPU for a prolonged time even on rather light tasks. I think I
only have seen this happen twice though (both times triggered by running
heavy cron jobs, after the system has been in use for a few weeks); and
at least the second time, it passed after a while... (The first time I
rebooted, so I don't know whether it would have settled down ultimately
Apart from that, ext2fs does of course consume a considerable amount of
CPU during heavy disk activity -- but nothing unexpected...
