Tip: discover and terminate high CPU processes (Linux)

A quick tip to get the dust out of our blog 🙂

If you hear the fan of your computer going way up, most likely that was because some application or process is using too much CPU. Find out which one and terminate it by:
1. Open the terminal
2. Run “top”
3. Press “k” and the number on “pid” column of the process which appears on the top of the list.

  5. I never had this problem with Linux, maybe because i don’t do so much work on my personal computer, but at my office we have windows and it drives me crazy because of the CPU processes.I’ve tried to convince them to switch to linux but they don’t want to because they are thinking that they will invest too many money on the IT part of the business.
