I have windows/ linux and osx machines here, currently testing on Linux (Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon, kernel: 4.15.0-58-generic).
Picoscope won't launch from the menu so I launch from the command line:
The problem I have is excessive CPU usage (~400%) leading to the laptop cutting power after a few minutes. My solution is to use the 'top' command to get the PID of the process called 'Main' and then run:sudo picoscope
This results in a mildly jittery but (for my current purposes) useable UI and no thermal shutdown. Is this safe for the pico usb device? I have started looking into how cpulimit works and can't see anything that would cause a problem so far.sudo cpulimit -l DESIRED_CPU_PERCENTAGE -p MAIN_PID
sudo cpulimit -l 80 -p 5619
Is there anyone else who's had a similar experience and can improve upon this fix?
