    boinc cpu usage spikes

    I currently have Boinc 6.10.18 installed. I usually notice that boincmgr.exe fluctuates from 0% to over 57% CPU. The 50% usage spikes happen about every 5 seconds (rough approximation). This happens whether new projects are paused or active.

    next behavior? normal If not, what can I do to diagnose this?

    Also, my system specs are as follows:

    Operating system: Win7 x64
    Processor: Pentium D 945 (3.4GHz x2)
    GPU: Nvidia 8800GT 512MB
    Chipset: Intel 945P
    RAM: 4 GB (3.5 GB available)

    You really have a lot of tasks Queues?
    If you do this, this behavior may disappear when you click BOINC Manager->Advanced View->Open Tasks Tab->Show Active Tasks??

    Speaking of which, rest assured that you can exit the BOINC handler (File->Exit) and that if you choose in the exit dialog to not process running scientific applications when you exit the new manager, the client will still be upgraded to Exiting BM?

    Thanks for the very quick response.

    I have two more active tasks in the queue (four in total). I don’t need to assume that this counts as “a lot”? If it matters, all tasks are CPU based, but also they all come from the same project.

    Switching between “Show Active Tasks” and “Show All” seems to have no effect on the issue.

    I will probably close boincmgr.exe as a workaround. However, I like to visually indicate whether science is working or stopping.If there is anything I can do to troubleshoot or resolve the issue, please let me know.

    edit:

    The problem is solved when I choose the simple view instead of the advanced one. Also, in advanced mode, the selected noticeable load occurs even if boincmgr is permanently minimized and science is paused.

    I will continue to check this and see that real events delay recent observations.

    Are you using the CPU Reduction option?
    What projects are you involved in?
    Have you checked your antivirus/antimalware programs to make sure they are not actively scanning your BOINCs and BOINC data?

    Are there any unusually sized files in your BOINC directory? data
