High CPU on fresh minemeld ansible install

Hello, I just installed minemeld on Ubuntu 18.04 (with a few tweaks from here) and the setup was working. But now I have a VM that consumes 2 full CPUs since about 30 minutes. When I try to login to the admin web interface I get after a few seconds the message "error checking credentials - timeout" in the right top corner and nothing happens.


Is this normal? I don´t think so but as I am new to minemeld everything is possible...

No this isn't expected behavior at all and it shouldn't be pegging the CPU even only really old hardware. If you log into the server run 'top' and see what is actually consuming the CPU.

no - this is no old hardware...


Those are the two processes that are constantly on top:


minemeld 99.7 2.5 /opt/minemeld/engine/current/bin/python2.7 /opt/minemeld/engine/current/bin/gunicorn -w 1 -b --worker-connections 500 --access-logfile - --error-logfile+
minemeld 59.1 0.6 /opt/minemeld/engine/current/bin/python2.7 /opt/minemeld/engine/current/bin/supervisord -c /opt/minemeld/supervisor/config/supervisord.conf --pidfile /var/run/minemeld+
