AWS CPU Steal Time

edmund_kueh

Hi,

I have a sandbox environment with CPU usage almost hitting 100%. When I were to zoom in further it seems that the CPU cycles are been stolen by the hypervisor (Steal Time 100%) while CPU user or CPU system is near 0%.

Does this mean that the sandbox is idle, hence the hypervisor is stealing CPU and allocate it to other instances ? If this is the case, then this should not have been highlighted as a problem in Dynatrace.
