Troubleshoot high CPU usage

I am using Gitlab 13.10.3 Omnibus on Docker in a CentOS guest on VMware. Lately I’ve noticed the CPU on the VM has been sitting at 100% and the system is inaccessible over SSH. What should I look at to start troubleshooting why this is happening? The only change I can think of was enabling Prometheus metrics a couple of weeks ago.

Hi @kbreit
you can use top to identify the process that consumes CPU resources. And then investigate further.
