Second Life consuming 100% of my cpu

Question

That doesn't happen very often.  When it does, it can be caused by an overly-aggressive anti-virus routine.  Norton, in particular, tends to try scanning every single file that your computer downloads, including every new texture that your viewer sees and tries to load into cache.  The problem can also sometimes be traced to threaded optimization -- especially with NVidia graphics cards.  Take a look at http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/100_cpu for a discussion of both possibilities and what to do about them.

Assuming you run windows you may want to open up task manager go in to processes and select show processes from all users and sort by cpu iyou may find a process called svchost.exe right at the top for CPU consumption this process if you right click it and select go to service(s) is responsible for a lot of parts of Windows including microsoft update which may be the cause for scvhost.exe using up so much CPU if it's fetching and downloading microsoft updates SL alone is unlikely to consume 100% CPU but not impossible

UPDATED 1/31/17: After testing both Firestorm & Singularity (2017 versions) on both Windows 10 Home x64 & Ubuntu 14.04 x64, Ubuntu 16.04 x64 & Linux Mint 18 (Sarah) I must reccomend a min. of 10-12 GB RAM in order to use SL for a prolonged period of time, so as to avoid having to logout & log back in to reset your dwindling RAM. This can be a major problem if your current motherboard will not hold 10 - 12 GB RAM. Currently on Fernando's build I'd go with this processor: AMD Phenom II x3 (triple core) 720 from Amazon 3rd party seller haneehanee11 used for a mere $17.00 + $4.49 shipping & handling. It is 2.8 GHz/core with L3 cache of 6MB:

There is a NEW model of the Nvidia GTX 1050ti...the XLR8 series that now uses a PCI-E 6pin connector. It is now clocked a little higher & by using a PCI-E 6pin will allow for further overclocking. It is available at BestBuy

The DDR5 4GB version

FYI the Nvidia GTX 1XXX series cards do NOT support an analog signal, so a VGA adapater will NOT work

On Fernandos' build I'd currently suggest the 2GB version solely for SL use.

Thank you for the tip and help! I'm on a very tight budget this year I will do as told me, I will first put 4 more ram and quadcore. I prefer to wait a little longer and buy after the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 750Ti 2GB
