High CPU usage

Recommended Posts

Win7sp1, Intel Core i5, paint.net 4.0.5288, CodeLab 2.0

 

Every time running CodeLab will use about 8% CPU, even after closing the plugin. After several times of running CodeLab, the CPU usage reaches the upper limit of 25%.

That doesn't appear to be very high. Even 25% seems low and that's probably transitional.

 

But if you consider it an issue you should post in the CodeLab thread

I think it is an issue of paint.net.

 

paint.net 4.0.5288 with CodeLab 1.8 got the same issue. Every time opening CodeLab, CPU usage increases by 8%, and the CPU keeps being used when CodeLab is closed. It significantly affects the speed of paint.net UI response.

Graphics programs do tend to use CPU...I guess I'm with TechnoRobbo, I don't see what the issue is here, either.

Could be a bug in CodeLab.

I'll look around and see if I can find anything.

CodeLab 2.1 with paint.net 4.0.5288 has the same issue.

 

I get some details if helpful:

When running CodeLab, a thread is created about 1.5 sec before csc.exe being called. The thread would not exit until closing paint.net.

CodeLab v2.16 manages threads much better than previous versions.

Upgrade to version 2.16 and see if the problem still exists.

I think 25% on an i5 probably means a thread is occupying all of the time in one of the four cores. On several occasions when my Firefox browser completely froze, the usage said exactly 25%.
