High CPU usage after PBM restore run finished

Hi there,

I faced the issue that after a restore operation triggered via PMM finished, the pbm-agent is staying at a very high CPU usage level. Unfortunately, I can’t see anything suspicious in the pbm logs and the pbm status looks ok as well. Anyone having an idea what’s wrong here?

Thanks and best regards,


Did you captured any OS level stats [Vmstat, IOSTAT, MPSTAT] around the issue duration or any similar details or graphs where we can check the patterns ?

Can you please share the Kernel/OS logs (/var/log/messages) or (dmesg -T > dmesg_t) etc ?

It appears this node is monitored via PMM also. Did you seen any abnormal spikes there for OS or database ?

Just to have a quick look over, can you please share the PBM configuration details as well ?

shell> pbm config
shell> pbm version

@anil.joshi , unfortunately I neither have any other OS level stats nor logs, I will try to capture them when the problem appears again.

This is what I can see in PMM:

Around 8am on 2024/01/22 was when I restarted the pbm process.

PBM config:

$ pbm config
  enabled: false
  oplogSpanMin: 0
  compression: s2
  type: s3
    provider: aws
    region: eu-central-1
    endpointUrl: s3.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com
    forcePathStyle: true
    bucket: my-bucket
    prefix: my-prefix
      access-key-id: '***'
      secret-access-key: '***'
    maxUploadParts: 10000
    storageClass: STANDARD
    insecureSkipTLSVerify: false
  compression: s2

PBM version:

$ pbm version
Version:   2.3.0
Platform:  linux/amd64
GitCommit: 3b1c2e263901cf041c6b83547f6f28ac2879911f
GitBranch: release-2.3.0
BuildTime: 2023-09-20_14:42_UTC
GoVersion: go1.19


Thanks for confirming the details.

Indeed the CPU usage were high on 21st Jan(08:00) as well and it looks like the saturation again started on 22Jan (00:00) and there continues until you restarted the PBM.

Did you observed such spike on other time duration as well when no restoration activity is performed ? How often you see such CPU spike with respect to PBM process ?

If you face the issue next time , please gather the TOP and other OS related statistics for review.

@anil.joshi , no, such spikes do not occur when no restoration is running. In general, this particular DB system is normally not exposed to heavy load as it’s only a mirror of the production system used for testing.

I will try to gather more data next time it occurs, but until now the spike didn’t re-appear. For me, it would be ok to close this thread, if the problem is not reproducible within the next 2 weeks.

hi Alex,

we will investigate the issue. you can track the progress in JIRA: [PBM-1251] Investigate cpu/mem usage caused by restore
