Resource Browser and CPU usage

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that VW2013 SP3 has been using massive amount of CPU when viewing the activity monitor, usually hovering around 40% even when backgrounded. I noticed that if I close and then reopen the resource browser it will drop VW CPU usage to under 1%. Is this a known issue, is there any fix?

Do you have any large resources visible as OpenGL thumbnails? Perhaps this could effect CPU usage?!

No, it is only showing our standard set of line types, hatches and and 2d symbols. This issue is new to VW 2013 or SP3 and the contents of the resource browser in our template files have not changed.

Yep, something weird is happening on my system. iMac 27", 3.4 i7, 16GB RAM, GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB, OS X10.8.3, 2013 SP3

Start VW with the resource browser open and a clean template, VW is using around 12% CPU, close the resource browser and VW takes a 100% load on 1 CPU core, open the resource browser back up and VW's CPU load drops back down to 0.5%.

is one of your favorites or libraries on a networked drive? Perhaps VW is trying in vain to load them.

All my resources are stored locally. I also just updated to SP4 and am getting the same behavior in this newer version.
