after a recent update i had issues with nvidia driver and some sporadic system freezes. I saw that the panel’s CPU consumtion was about 50%. I compiled the nvidia driver, accordind the forum’s instructions, but the issue with CPU remains.
That’s a lot. How did you get to that conclusion?
conky indicates so, and the top command as well
i have a two core processor and one core looks like works on 100%
Applications launched from the panel are considered children processes of that panel, but they should still be treated as distinct processes for monitoring.
Two things i think about that may affect the panel directly are the notification area and compositing.
at first thanks for the answers.
i have disabled compositing and nothing changed. as regard the notification area what should i try?
Check what services/applications are shown in it. Maybe one of them is responsible.
There are two things to try:
- delete the folder
- back up the XFCE configuration residing in
~/.config/xfceand then delete that folder as well
htop then say?
thanks for the answer. I will try your solution and I hope it will work.
very well my friend! the problem seems to have been sold. the cpu cosumption is ok now. Thanks a lot for your time!
