Set your affinity

 

taskset -p ps aux^C
mint mint # ps aux|grep kvm

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.
