    Default "Strange" memory peaks

    Hi, there are some memory peaks in my Leap 15 Beta with KDE:

    There are nothing open, just the ksysguard:



    And here is the Htop:




    There is this "steam-update" running but I didn't open the steam.

    I don't know what is causing this.

    Many thanks

    Try logging the cpu usage over time, for example with:
    Code:
    while true; do (echo "%CPU ARGS $(date)" && ps -e -o pcpu,args --sort=pcpu | cut -d" " -f1-5 | tail) >> log.txt; sleep 3; done
    Have this script running while you see these peaks and stop it using "Ctrl-C". Open log.txt and see if any process pops up.

    Those are the main stuffs running in the background with nothing opened:

    Code:
    %CPU
     0.3 kded5 [kdeinit5]
     0.3 /usr/bin/krunner
     0.3 /usr/bin/kwalletd5
     0.5 /usr/sbin/NetworkManager --no-daemon
     0.5 /usr/bin/konsole
     0.7 [btrfs-transacti]
     0.8 /usr/lib/systemd/systemd --switched-root --system
     2.4 /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp
     3.1 kwin_x11
     4.1 /usr/bin/plasmashell

    Using "gtop" I get something strange:

    "ps -axo pid:10,pcpu:6,pm" consuming 200% of the cpu!

    What is that?
