Reported CPU usage is different between Galaxy and APM

I’ve noticed that in Galaxy it shows CPU spikes on our servers to 70% or 80% sometimes, but when looking at Meteor APM the graph doesn’t show anything above 10% CPU usage or so. Does anyone else see this type of discrepancy or know what would cause that? It’s hard to know which I can trust as correct.

Hello @efrancis ,

We report this CPU difference between Galaxy and APM in our documentation.

Follow the link: Containers | Galaxy Docs

Anyway, I will take this ticket to our dev team, we have some tasks in our backlog to improve APM, soon we will publish more news.

Best Regards,



Thanks that makes sense. It’s a confusing UX tho, ideally APM would show usage % of total accessible CPU. The current setup has made it a little tricky to hunt down CPU spikes in prod sometimes.

Yes, it really makes sense. As I said, I will bring these questions to our next meeting next week.

Thank you for the explanation.

Best Regards,
