    High CPU Contention issue

    veel84 Lurker

      I have an issue with high CPU Contention which sometimes averages above 10% for a good portion of the day but I cannot seem to get it down below 5%.

       

      Here's the basic setup, it runs on ESXi 6.0.0 build 3568940.

      Here is what is on each of the two hosts:

      Here is CPU Contention according to vRealize for today:

      Now according to me, i have plenty of free pCPU's to account for scheduling of all my vCPU's so in theory I should not be experiencing this much CPU Contention. I do have two other clusters that work harder than this one and they rarely spike above 2.5%. Anything else i need to look into?
