Left4Dead - Linux - Idle Server Performance on ESXi

My server is a Ubuntu Jeos 8.1 virtual machine running on VMWare ESXi - my ESX server has an AMD Athlon X2 BE-2400 Brisbane 2.3GHz processor.

As you can see the actual CPU load reported by ESX when the Left4Dead server is idle peaks at 93Mhz which is pretty low if you ask me. (If I kill the Left4Dead server the CPU usage for that virtual machine drops to 6Mhz!)

Once I can get 4 friends playing I will post back the results to see the difference!
