Re: Switch Blocking because high CPU

Hi,

Can you explain what you mean when you say it is "blocking by high CPU?"

What is your total CPU utilization?

Also, what version of code are you running?

8.98% for IDLE_Tasks is quite normal. The IDLE_Tasks process is actually an enhancement which collects information more effectively for creating crashinfo files. This was integrated in 8.3 and 8.4 codes. You can certainly roll back to 8.2 and you will not see this issue, but you will also lose the functionality of a more effective crashinfo.

HTH,

Bobby
