Why is shfs task utilizing a lot of CPU almost all the time?


Recommended Posts

Hello - As the topic suggests trying to see why the shfs task is taking up a lot of processing power, even without active writes happening on the system. below is a screenshot from glances and terminal showing the usage.




I found this topic from 2017 (with 6.2.x), I don't have freeze-up issues currently as I upgraded to a much beefier processor and doubled the memory, but used to have those issues with my old 4 core xeon, but still this is a concern. 


Also what is that %CPU out of because my server load is not  greater than 10-15% when this task shows up as 200% of CPU.


I do have a mix of rfs and xfs disks in the array. Not sure if that is causing this?
