What's the deal with CPU Usage Percentage?
I'm often pegging the needle in the red. How does that impact VarAC?
How do I get out of the red?
Do I need to quit other programs that are running?
Do I need to get a computer better than the $50 eBay laptop I'm currently using?
You didnt include the critical info on your PC?
Currently I am running 4 instances of VarAC as well as 2 SDR radio programs and my CPU is at 6%
CPU usage depends on many things: how many other programs are running, whether windows is doing a download in the background, or perhaps even a update, how much RAM you have, etc.
I leave my windows 10 Pro system running 24/7, and restart it in the morning when coming into the shack. I do a cold boot once a week.
Doing both of these speeds up PC performance, and lowers the CPU usage shown in VARA-HF
