Set your affinity

taskset -p ps aux^C
mint mint # ps aux|grep kvm
root 1306 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? S< Aug17 0:00 [kvm-irqfd-clean]

mint mint # taskset -pc 31 3725
pid 3725's current affinity list: 0-31
pid 3725's new affinity list: 31
mint mint # taskset -pc 30,31 3725
pid 3725's current affinity list: 31
pid 3725's new affinity list: 30,31

In the above command I set the affinity to core 31 and then changed it to cores 30 and 31.
