Who initiates this process and what does it do?

SYSTEM INFORMATION
Debian 10
Virtualmin version 7.3-1

Can anyone tell me what the following program does:
/usr/share/webmin/authentic-theme/stats.cgi
it takes up a lot of CPU resources
Thanks

I guess from its URI that it is the script that collects stats that are displayed on the Virtualmin Dashboard. On low resource systems, I disable realtime monitoring graphs via Theme Configuration → Dashboard and real-time monitoring.

This causes the Dashboard to consume far less CPU resources.

Thank you,

Another question to the forum people.
I have 1 CPU 4 core and 8 GB
When I look at the system stats, I see :
5568 www-data 51.8 % /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
9708 www-data 50.7 % /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
6224 www-data 50.4 % /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
6807 www-data 50.4 % /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
14135 www-data 49.7 % /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
16823 www-data 49.3 % /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start

CPU load averages: 93 over 1 minute
The percentage of cpu for www data should exceed 100% cumulatively.
Does this mean that the load is spread over the cores?
