Again, as you've been asked several times in the past, you need to PROVIDE DETAILS. You tell us absolutely NOTHING about your system, what it's running, the environment, etc. We can't guess.

Did you look up what the cs value actually is, and what it does? "cs" is "context switches", which is basically the CPU switching tasks. It's normal for this value to be high, since this happens hundreds of times a second, as part of normal system functioning. Busy systems = large cs counter. Want it lower? Then stop running some things on your system.
