I am running the bitcoind (launched as sudo ./bitcoind -server) on a amazon micro instance running ubuntu. The problem is that the CPU utilisation is 100% even when my hash/s count is 0! For information, getinfo returns. I want to run the bitcoind on a website and I need every CPU cycle for http requests.

sudo ./bitcoind getinfo

First, don't sudo; there is no reason for bitcoin to run as root.

Second:  it isn't done downloading the block chain.  I just checked a bitcoind I've got running on an Amazon micro instance, and it is using less than 1% of the CPU.  After you've got all 128,909 blocks the CPU usage should drop.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?
