    I have run a simple tar from the shell to decompress my old site. I don't understand why but i have a cpu state like this :

    CPU states: 0.3% user, 0.0% system, 0.0% nice, 99.6% idle

    but the tar command (in the top) get the 27% of the cpu only for 2 or 3 seconds every 10. No other job are working and I don't understand why it is so slow.

    Is this normal ?

    Thank you
