Pokeys Plugin using excessive CPU
« on: March 06, 2023, 10:35:46 AM »
Hi everyone,

I just installed a pokeys 57E board into my machine for extra I/O (with a ESS for motion control),

My poor notebook is going insane (50% cpu load and apparently "very high" power usage (ha?) whenever it is enabled.  I don't even have any of the i/o enabled at this point.

I don't see any refresh rate configuration for it like the ESS has, but it appears to be wanting to update constantly (which is not necessary for me as it is just additional I/O)

The computer should have plenty of power to handle this (i7-6500 with 8gb ram)

Is this a known issue?

I may have answered my own question:  I found what may be the issue.  Update rate was set to fast.  I'm not sure how slow medium and slow actually are but setting it to medium brought the CPU down from 49% to 29%
