Reduce CPU usage while watching Flash movies
Authored by: shok on Mar 04, '09 09:03:52AM

Am I the only person who finds all of this values too high? How is the CPU usage while playing a youtube video with Linux or Windows? The same??

btw. Why does a f***ing print job need around 100% CPU??

If a task must process some data, why not have it use all available CPU resources so the task can be completed as quickly as possible? Would you be happier if the task took longer because it was constrained to use a smaller percentage of the available resource?

Reduce CPU usage while watching Flash movies

Hi Kevin,

I don't understand your argument. The limiting factor concerning time until a print is finished isn't the CPU - it is printing speed!! A print job needs the same amount of time regardless if it uses 1% CPU or 100% CPU.

Furthermore the print job uses 100% CPU even when I have a ~200% (2 cores) CPU usage before starting the print job!

Laziness.

The programmer thinks the print job will be over soon so there's no need to flush out resources etc.
