Question

I have recently just started using Second life.

Yesterday I was moving around swiftly, my graphics usage was sitting at around 30%

I've change absolutely nothing in my system, nor the Second life graphical settings and today it is coasting at 100%

Seemingly for no reason, I'm in the same areas I was yesterday but now it is deciding it need then entire RTX 2070 all to itself tanking my entire computer.

Can someone please help me?

Go to Menu HELP > About Firestorm and copy paste it's contents here so we can see your settings. (it's similar to the photo below)

Not having dug into GPU performance much before -- my system runs fine, so why bother -- I did a quick google and this is the first thing displayed:

I know that, but it was coasting so easily at 30% the other day I was getting 30-40fps and today I'm at about 18fps and burning up my graphics card. It just seems a little odd.

1. Check your performance in a few different regions. If the problem only occurs in one place, look for something there that has extremely high complexity.

2. If the problem is seen in all locations, try switching to a default avatar. If that resolves the problem, it was something attached to you.

3. If neither of the above helps, try installing a slightly older graphics driver. Do a clean install; there are tools available to help do this with Nvidia drivers.

Pretty much, that is why I'm absolutely confused why the graphics is running so hard over nothing.

 

Keep a back up of your Firestorm settings and then Reset it to defaults+clear caches then check again without restoring settings. leave it to the defaults.

Also check the same sim with the same settings using the LINDEN viewer (even if you hate it, it is always good to have it installed for testing; it updated automatically).  

 

I don't know what to say about the using 100 percent of the GPU. Sansar used to take whatever it could (that was planned) of everyone's computer. At the same time I have read many places that my Nvidia cards shouldn't run above 60 == this for long life and not burning up power supplies.  I even lost my motherboard once when programs (SL and Blender baking) were running too hot.  So ......

 

Just recently (for a few of my friends and I) Windows did an update that messed up a lot of devices -- for me, my mouse. Sometimes depending on settings, Windows will update for you. Sometimes, too (I have checked this many times) Windows updates WITHOUT listing the update in the "what was updated" pane.  It can be very frustrating.

 

Good luck!

Oh yes, that can be important. Check for recent Windows updates. I hope it didn't sneak Windows 11 onto your machine when you weren't looking.

Happily it seems like Microsoft has figured out how many people don't want  Win11 and now are just offering you the option while still adding the security updates and such -- at least that is what "I" get. Still really messed up my mouse -- or at least it seems that way :D. Living with it and hoping it gets fixed soon.
