Process kswapd0 triggers 100% CPU usage

After a week of working ok and uninterrupted for 8 days.
Suddenly cpu fired up to 100% usage and I couldnt access the droplet.
After reboot and password reset, I launched the process again and the same happed in a couple of hours.
The second time, I could enter to the droplet and doesn’t seems to be a hack on the machine. The process using the cpu was the
and this is a known issue with the memory swap management but not very clearly solved in Ubuntu machines.
Furthermore, this is not really a machine, and I don’t know (and probably I don’t need to know) how is configured.
As this maybe is an trouble shared with other users I ask for some recommendation. Thanks in advance,
