Subject RE: strange performance issue with many shards on one server

Yes, that thread waits (in the sense that nothing useful gets done), but during that time,
from the perspective of the applications and OS, that CPU is busy: it is not "waiting" in
such a way that you can dispatch a different process.

The point is, that if this was actually the problem, it would show up in a higher CPU utilization
than the correspondent reported.

i don't know how the program (top, htop, whatever) displays the value 
but when the cpu has a cache miss definitely that thread sits and waits 
for a number of clock cycles
with 130GB of ram (per server?) I suspect caches miss as a rule

just a suspicion however, nothing I'll bet on
