It's interesting that the CPU is being consumed by "VM Thread." It doesn't look like an ordinary Tomcat or application problem. When I googled "java vm thread," I got some interesting results, such as this one: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/webnotes/tsg/TSG-VM/html/hangloop.html That also describes the scenario where a thread dump doesn't seem to do anything.
