Live Mesh Beta CPU Usage Really High RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Since I updated to the latest release I have noticed that the Moe.exe process will max out one of my cores when doing a simple sync to the live mesh desktop. This is quite annoying as it means that I have to go into offline mode whenever I want to play a game or do something else intensive. It also makes my cpu fan spin up etc.

    Have other people noticed this problem?

    I'm running on Vista x64 with SP1 and have a Athlon 64 X2 @ 2.5ghz.

    Thanks

  • Yes. I noticed however that it maxed out all my cores, which basically rendered the system unusable until I quit the Moe.exe process. I narrowed it down to uploading files only, not sure if this is what you saw?

    Vista x64 SP1 also.

  • I have Vista x64 SP1 on C2D E8400 and haven't seen this problem? I wonder what is different...

    Was it a p2p sync or a cloud sync?

  • I had the same issue, on Vista x64 SP1.  It was syncing a folder full of jpegs up to the cloud, and consuming 90% or more CPU total on a quad-core laptop.  As soon as the upload finished, moe.exe went idle.

  • Confirming the problem - my PC also uses 90% CPU on all of my cores (Intel quad core processor). Will send the logs to the address provided above.

  • This happens to me when I wake my laptop from sleep.  I have to wait 10 minutes before its usable.

    For how long? What antivirus software are you running?

  • Hello,
    I use W7 64Bit, Live Mesh and Security Essentials. Live Mesh uses > 28% CPU power and gets it up to a total of 100% so the system is more or less useless until I kill Moe.exe  (read: Closing Live Mesh in systray will not solve the issue, I need to kill it through task manager). I can either kill the process or shutdown the computer, otherwise it takes countless weeks and the problem will not solve itself here. I sync about 2 TB of data between 3 PCs.

    That's an excessive amount of data and I expect that it is consuming CPU as it reads through the hash data for every single file in your Mesh folders....
    The best I can suggest is that you submit a bug report with logs:
     

    How to Submit Bugs and Live Mesh Logs

    Note that you may not receive a response to the bug report, though. It will be transferred to the internal system to be assigned to the appropriate development group.

  • Mine runs in bursts. It will be okay for a second, then all four cores will jump up to 60% for a second or two. It's not even syncing anything.
