Re: High CPU usage after upgrading from Debian 7 to Debian 9
Thanks for your answer.
I have Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1220 v3 @ 3.10GHz inside - no HT on it.
And I already have CPU microcode installed:
dpkg -l | grep microcode
ii amd64-microcode 3.20160316.3 amd64 Processor microcode firmware for AMD CPUs
ii intel-microcode 3.20180807a.1~deb9u1 amd64 Processor microcode firmware for Intel CPUs
Do you think removing it would help?
Also I have Broadcom network adapters - if it is important:
Broadcom Limited NetXtreme II BCM57810 10 Gigabit Ethernet

I have updated one from Debian 7 to Debian 9 recently and now experience 2x CPU utilization on the same amounts of traffic, e.g. on normal load of 1Gbps (real-world traffic) Debian 7 had 5-6% and Debian 9 has 10-12% softirq CPU time. This behaviour can also be observed during tests - 6Gbps iperf gets 3% on Debian 7 and 6% on Debian 9.

we have noticed something similar due to the spectre/meltdown updates.
Turning off HT cpus did help much.
not installing the CPU microcode should help too.
