10.4: Cut down on the World Clock widget's CPU usage
Authored by: CraigStanton on Jun 14, '05 09:53:52PM

Was that 3.7% less total CPU load, or was the Clock Widget CPU usage dropped by 3.7%?

10.4: Cut down on the World Clock widget's CPU usage
Authored by: barrysharp on Jun 14, '05 10:23:43PM

Hmmmm - you made me re-examine my arithmetic.\

With second hand active the World Clock consumed 2.53 secs cputime during a 60 sec wall time. Without second hand active it consumed 0.33 secs in the 60 sec wall time. So the second hand being active means cputime consumed is approx 7.7x that without second hand. Hope that makes sense. :-))
