[rhelv6-list] CPU utilization issue following leap second insertion



Most of my RHEL6 systems running Java applications went nuts when the leap second was added:

[root rhtsutility02 stuff]# ssh rhesdevwesb01 grep UTC /var/log/messages
Jun 30 19:59:59 rhesdevwesb01 kernel: Clock: inserting leap second 23:59:60 UTC

Output of sar during interval in question

I've RHEL4 and RHEL5 systems running the same apps, same JVM, same J2EE (mostly WebSphere), and they were all fine.

A couple of my RHEL6 boxes didn't log the 'inserting leap second' dmesg entry, and they did not exhibit an issue - Not sure why they did not log it, since they are all using the same NTP clock sources.

Anyone else see this? I'm going to grab a bunch of sosreports and get a case open, but wanted to see if it was something unique to my environment.
