I don’t know how to read that. It looks like it says osquery wrote 40 megs/s, and during that time period it was 100% of the usage? Are those numbers a problem? Is that sustained? I’d sorta expect anything that writes to disk to have spikes like that. Though, I guess a question is what it’s writing to disk

Ah, the issue has to do with swap I think. The laptops in question have heavy Google Chrome loads, so most of the RAM is eaten by that beast. My best guess atm is that heavy disk writing by osquery is affecting swap and thus the perf issues the users are reporting.

There might be an issue… I’m saying that I don’t know how to contextualize that screenshot
