I'm getting the occasional hanging up and stuttering with Minecraft primarily. I've watched top and my cpu and ram have plenty of headroom. The only other thing this machine does is run a few LXD containers. Normal cpu usage is around 3-5%.

Is this normal. Is there something I can do to fine tune something? The wife is a bit anxious about it as this was a non-issue on Windows. She loves linux but this stutter is not making her happy. Any ideas?
