I have a problem. CPU is always between 90%-100% even after i reboot the system.
When i run top i see a process called ld-linux-x86-64 with CPU at 99% for user deploy.

What should i do? What is ld-linux-x86-64?

  • I am also facing the same issue.
    This process ld-linux-x+ is showing 120 to 140% in cpu usage section.
    What could be the cause of this?

This is most likely other applications or processes that are running through the process you are seeing. Try running pstree to see all subprocesses under the process you’re seeing with top.

I am also facing the same problem as below is the output of pstree of my server. Please help to resolve this issue. I have tried to increase my CPU resources but still that process is eating up all CPU resources.
