Have you recently rebuilt world/kernel on the system, or rebuild kernel
but not world?

If so, there may have been changes to the KVM structure within libkvm or
the kernel that could be manifesting themselves by showing anomalies of
this sort in userland applications.  Most commonly this shows up in
utilities like "ps" or "top", both of which use libkvm.

I'm not familiar with "Pimcore".  If this software links to libkvm, you
may need to rebuild the software to keep in sync with any KVM or kernel
