I am running the Win.exe client of BitCoin on a 6-processor Thuban w/ 8 GB of RAM and Win7 Home Premium.
I have it set to use multiple processors.
While running nothing else (other than a web browser and minimal background) my CPU load is very minimal.
Is there something I am doing wrong, or is this just the way it is?
For example, currently I have 8 connections, have a couple hundred K blocks, and my CPU load looks like this:http://i535.photobucket.com/albums/ee353/zeevious/6core_bitcoin_load.png?t=1305827675
