Linux, top question

In the screen shot below, why is kacpi_notify[ at 100 percent, but idle is at 93, isn't that a contradiction ?

Tasks: 433 total,   4 running, 421 sleeping,   0 stopped,   8 zombie

Maybe my eyes are deceiving me... where does it say it is idle?

The r under the S column suggests that it is running.

hi
how many core do you have ??
0
 
fosiul01Commented:
if you have more then 1 cpu

which means, 1 cpu is using 100% cpu , but other cpu is idle
hence

93.7%id   : does not match

93.7%id : is overal  idle time .(include your core processor)
