I am working on an application which I previously tested on CentOS6.6 and now after compiling same application on CentOS7.3.1611 and running I am observing a high load average. load avg with CentOS 6.6 remained to be 1.5
in same test where it remains >4.5 in CentOS 7.3.1611. The application uses high network resource to communicate over UDP and SCTP.
there is zero process disk IO with application(zero logging in runtime).
Though CPU usage of application is same but load average is consistently high and I am not able to debug the reason. Any insights.
