Using too much CPU Checkhost Pro
Mark Showacre, 2012-04-30 20:45:52
Tested on multiple windows XP Pro SP3 systems.
I install CheckHost Pro V1.1.5.
It is using too much cpu cycles....
Import CheckHost list for checking 55 hosts.
Unacceptible cpu usage
CheckHostPro.exe +/- 20%
CheckHostService.exe +/- 20%

The old CheckHost.exe never used that much CPU preformance for checking the sames 55 hosts.
I can not use CheckHost Pro if this in not corrected
Very unhappy...

Hello Mark,

first thanks for your post!

CPU usage does not mainly depend on the number of hosts themselves, but on the number of checks that need to be executed. So if you have a high number of hosts you could think about increasing the check interval (checking less often) if that is an option for you.

Additionally keep in mind that the GUI program of Check Host Pro does not need to run all the time as all checks are performed by the Check Host Pro Service in background anyway. It is only used as user interface and to deliver the desktop notifications. But if you want keep the GUI running anyway, you could at least reduce the display update interval in the program options. This would also reduce the CPU usage of the GUI application.

Best regards

Hi guys, great program and I really like the additional features that the pro version gives you. I too find that the CPU utilisation is quite high on my computer (100 checks) that check anywhere from 10 seconds to several days.

The free version copes really well with this load and I am happy to beta test for you if you want to look at where the difference in performance is between the pro and free version. I really like the idea of pausing certain checks and would buy this app solely for this feature if the performance was handled the same way as the free version.

Thanks again fro such a great product.

Hello Peter,

there is only a little performance drop for the Pro version when both processes are running:
the Check Host Windows service that really does the checking and the Check Host client application that visualize the checks.

But there is normally no need to keep both processes running. It's enough if only the Windows service runs all the time. Then CPU usage should be similar to the free version.

Best regards
