Thank you for the guidance Dave.

I have two questions regarding runq.

1. Could you please let me know how the active task has spent more time
than uptime on some CPUs ?

crash> runq -m

  CPU 0: [0 00:23:29.808]  PID: 529    TASK: ffff88079d0d1e40  COMMAND:
"kworker/u141:1"

  CPU 1: [1 12:10:42.840]  PID: 0      TASK: ffff88079df48000  COMMAND:
"swapper/1"

  CPU 2: [1 12:10:42.841]  PID: 0      TASK: ffff88079df4bc80  COMMAND:
"swapper/2"

  CPU 3: [1 12:10:42.841]  PID: 0      TASK: ffff88079df4dac0  COMMAND:
"swapper/3"

  CPU 4: [1 12:10:42.841]  PID: 0      TASK: ffff88079df49e40  COMMAND:
"swapper/4"

  CPU 5: [1 12:10:42.841]  PID: 0      TASK: ffff88079df58000  COMMAND:
"swapper/5"

2. Is there a way to find out why some CPUs have time lag in run queue ?

  CPU 32: 0.00 secs

  CPU 65: 0.00 secs

  CPU 54: 0.00 secs

   CPU 0: 0.01 secs

  CPU 16: 84.22 secs

  CPU 66: 268.75 secs

  CPU 58: 268.75 secs

  CPU 57: 268.75 secs

  CPU 43: 268.75 secs

  CPU 20: 268.75 secs

   CPU 7: 268.75 secs

crash>

I'm struggling to find out why my VM hung(unresponsive to ping/ssh and
couple of CPUs at 100% utilization).
