Top showing 9999% CPU usage on Ubuntu Lucid 10.04


On My Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid 64 Bit Server, top command showing CPU usage 9999% for java process.But htop command or ps -aux is showing accurate usage.After googling, i found that its bug related to "sum_exec_runtime', but the Patch given is not working.

Can any one help?

Advanced Thanks

I have my doubts whether these issues are related. The post
you pointed at is 4 years old, I can't imagine the issue
being carried forth in current kernels of a recent Linux
release. Which kernel version does your machine run, what's
your ubuntu release?

I'm with Tink. That patch was for 2.6.23; no surprise it won't fit on 2.6.32. And that would probably be an Amazon modified kernel anyway.

I'm not saying it ain't possible it's the same/similar regression - maybe push a problem ticket up to Amazon and see if they have an answer.
