From time to time, like every 2-3 hours I notice that the UI becomes sluggish and reaction of apps is quite slow.
When I check the cpu with OSmonitor or top, I notice that the process ksoftirqd/0 causes the cpu to go crazy (100% at 1GHz).
What I have found out so far:
- It only happens when Wifi is on
- It keeps staying at 100% until I turn Wifi off for a second and then on again - ksoftirqd/0 returns to normal
This happens about twice or three times a day. Like I said, I can't figure out what exactly ksoftirqd causes to run amok when Wifi is turned on.
Needless to say that when I don't check the device, the battery gets low at an alarming rate.
I googled about ksoftirq and it's a known issue in the linux world, but apparently no one came up with a solution.
But on the other hand no one else seems to have a problem with that on their SGS
Should I consider that the problem may lie in the hardware?
