     PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND
    636 root      39  19       0      0      0 R 100.0  0.0   1593:07 kipmi0

    Go to, enter the word 'kipmi0', then start reading the various posts what can cause high cpu load with kipmi kernel helper.

    Thanks Till
    This worked for me.
    I found this.
    The workaround I found is to do the following;
    echo 100 > /sys/module/ipmi_si/parameters/kipmid_max_busy_us
    This limits kipmi0 to only be allowed to use 10% CPU, you can play around and lower the values more if you still think this is too high.
    Add it to your /etc/rc.local so it runs on boot.

    but there is no file as rc.local on ubuntu18.04 server, where I can add it?

    Ubuntu 18.04 uses systemd as init system. So no longer rc files. Add that command to systemd startup scripts.
