futex take much CPU time and cause errors



In a bind9 performance testing I monitored one of named threads with strace for a while, and got below message:

[root dl580-1 root]# strace -p 1797 -c
Process 1797 attached - interrupt to quit
Process 1797 detached

I traced down the futex errors:
There're many sth. like 'futex(0x818f1bc, FUTEX_WAIT, 585151, NULL) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)'. 


At this time the CPU utilization is:

Do you know what is going on and cause so many system CPU utilization?

thx.
