Reason for CPU duty

Hey guys,

usually my CPU usage is - at idle - about 2% (I’m on a RPi4). The last hours it’s about 20-25%. Is there a way how to find the reason for the increased usage (so what is using the CPU with which duty)?

Thanks and greetings!

Running top is usuallu the first port of call in linux. However it may just tell you that python hass is using a lot of cpu, which is not very helpful.

To look within the home assistant python application, some more tools may be required.

Tell us what top tells you.

That’s what I got from the Terminal addon (CPU sensor shows 20 % load):
