Sometimes when I burn a disc (be it a video DVD, data DVD, CD, whatever) the CPU will be at ~50%, ~75%, ~90% (basically high) usage, while at other times it will be at ~5%, ~10%, ~20% (basically low). Whatever level the usage is at, it tends to be pretty consistent throughout that particular burn.
I am trying to figure out what causes high CPU usage. It is likely some sort of software configuration (eg some app running or a driver active or something) since it clearly can be low without any major changes. I have only today determined to figure it out so I donâ€™t have a lot of data (what app, what type of disc, data, etc.) collected yet, but I will start keeping track of it from now on.
In the meantime, does anyone know what could be causing a burn to have a high CPU usage?
