I'm having a bit of a problem with EVE. As you can see on this image, CPU Load, it happens regularly. I'm running EVE windowed and VLC is open along with MSN. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm running EVE in lower resolution, reduce the graphics or close all other applications. Does anyone have any idea what is happening?

That isn't Eve causing your problem.

Eve only runs one thread so it is only going to spike the CPU on one core, not both.

Given that you have both cores spiking to 100% usage at the same time, I would suggest looking at what else you have running at the time.

Try using Performance Monitor, Process Explorer or some other tool to keep an eye on which processes/thread are causing the spike.

You may be right but this only happens when I got EVE running.

It might be happening at other times as well, you just might not notice because other applications might not be affected as much by the descreased availablity of CPU time.

That or it could have something to do with how your video drivers are interacting between Eve and VLC.

It could be any number of things, but the graph that you took a screenshot of doesn't tell you nearly enough to find out what the problem is.

Also, you should get a 64-bit Operating System ... you're not getting all the ram installed on your computer.

I have the same problem, CPU load increases till 60% when I just start eve, login screen. I have windows XP now, but when I had windows 2000, cpu load was 100%. If I make something on the computer I can tell if eve minimised or closed, my computer is lagging. This problem was in the past, then CCP made a fix to a client in some patch and eve started to use minimum CPU, then after some patch eve started to eat CPU again.

Hate to say this but your wrong eve is having serious problems with cpu load whether it be the stackless I/O or the graphics upgrade I don't know but ccp's programmers have stuffed up or not closed some memory leaks either way ccp need to act before the world finance problem comes knocking on there door. I for one wont put up with this lag fest for too much longer.

Wrong, EVE most certainly uses both cores.

the problem he is having is not isolated, I'm also having the same problem and I dont have a dual core CPU I'm running AMD Athlon 3000+ and I too am getting huge CPU load spikes undocking and warping and usually in window mode. CCP has stuffed up I don't know how yet but I know they have and are working on it. this is not an isolated problem.

So are you, Windows shares the load over both cores making it look like it's multithreading.

If EVE was truely multithreaded then it would utilise both cores pretty much 100%.

I'm pretty sure that the premium client makes limited use of a second core.

Eve might have some background threads, most likely spawned by various drivers or asynchronous IO operations, but there is only one main processing thread.

Like Pohbis said, windows will shift the Eve client between cores. This will give the appearance of using both cores, but it is only using one at a time.

Simply see 100% CPU usage when Eve is running, is not an indication that Eve is responsible for that usage. You can use performance monitor to see which program/thread is taking up your CPU time.
