Host CPU usage begins at 10-40%, fluctuating. I can live with that. After some time, CPU starts hitting 85-90+. The delay between 'normal' CPU and spiked CPU can be 5 minutes to 30+ minutes.
Pausing/Stopping WiMP returns the CPU to a lower rate, but resuming immediately spikes.
Is it possibly related to the codec utilized by the stream source?
Another thing, vbox NAT network may be the cause of high cpu. If you are using NAT, then try to change to a bridged network with a real physical ip address
Will also try that before I ditch this build.
But, you have found the only difference between my pre 3.x and post 3.x versions of VBox. In 2.x, I was not using NAT. Also noteworthy, this CPU issue appears
to be a new development. I may have not noticed before, regardless of my experience once I updated to 3.06 - but I do not think so. It is a fairly big problem.
@Jimbo - I have not installed the VMserver yet. Been in the car basically all day - with another 80 mile trip before I eat dinner.
