300% CPU usage on OSX

Postby vkbs » Wed Oct 04, 2017 6:27 pm

I successfully installed Picoscope SW on Mac OS Sierra. While running (even when not measuring anything) PicoScope uses >300% of CPU and heats up. How can I avoid this?

Hi vkbs,

This might be something to do with the Mono Runtime.

Please try version 5.0.1.1.

I already use Mono 5.0.1.1. (with the newest mono version the application won't even start)...

Hi vkbs,

I believe the Development Team have investigated this issue and made a fix although I cannot advise on timescales to when the next release will be available.

It might be useful to see a trace.xml file after closing down the software to confirm this is the same issue.
