sabredog Posted January 31, 2006 Report Share Posted January 31, 2006 I made the switch to uTorrent when version 1.0 was released and have been a pretty happy camper until recently. This last month after upgrading to 1.4 I have been experiencing regular 100% CPU spikes. If I go back to 1.2.2, the spikes still occur.I have read the FAQ and many posts here about this issue but cannot resolve the problem at this stage. PC SpecsP4-2.8Ghz 756Mb RAMWinXP SP2Netgear DG834G RouterMcafee 2005 (AV only)PG240Gb/200Gb HDDA test of several things, plus a test firing of uTorrent 1.4 on my Duron dual boot (McAfee AV 2004, 756mb RAM has resulted in a clearing of the mud so to speak.The Duron shows a steady CPU use of 3-6% on a sub 350mb torrent.Duron SpecsDuron 1.3Ghz 756Mb RAMWinXP SP2(same router) LANMcafee 2004 (AV only)20Gb HDDMy P4 main use PC running uTorrent 1.4 (McAfee AV 2005, PG2 and 756mb RAM) has a CPU use of 6-20% with a 600mb torrent but as soon as a 1gb+ file is added to the mix, CPU use spikes 100% on a regular interval, presumably as the cache is written to the HDD (all DMA).DHT is active and if shut off, has no effect.I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that Utorrent simply cannot cope with 1GB+ files. Certainly on this machine. I will test the Duron shortly with a 1GB+ file to see if that gives the same spikes.This spiking as mentioned before has only recently begun occurring on my P4 so I am at a loss to work out what has caused this issue.Anyone else have the same issue with larger files and is this perhaps a correct assumption?I really want to continue using uTorrent!
