100% CPU occupancy usually happen on the userland code, so strace is
usually not help by providing info on the syscall level.

It'll be ideal if you can take a C-land on-CPU flame graph for your
worker processes spining at 100% CPU time, which will give the whole
picture about how CPU time is distributed among all the code paths:


We've been using this to analyse and optimize CPU hogs in our
production environment, and not just for NGINX but for everything that
we can get proper backtraces :)
