"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

Animated widgets on desktop???

Hi, no…

Try logging the cpu usage over time, for example with:

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:

 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?
