CPU Load

Mon Oct 26, 2015 9:32 am

Has anyone else noticed high CPU Load with the official touchscreen? Even with no programs running, I'm finding a CPU load of over 100% most of the time (as reported by uptime, or htop).

Are you using a Pi 1 or a Pi 2?

Sorry - should have made that clear. It's a Pi 2.

A clock program I wrote some time ago shows the CPU usage and CPU load on screen (with a Pi 1, it was important, although it seems less so with the Pi 2). Running that program on a standard (non-touch) HDMI screen shows usage at 4% and load varying from about 10% up to 60%. When run on the touchscreen, usage is also 4% but load never drops below 100%.
