System Causing Spikes


I had narrowed down the offending problem to the System "process" and was about to dig further. Is there a different way to pause the CPU Usage History? I've been tinkering with kernrate for a while. Hopefully we'll be able to tweak layered security performance to eliminate unnecessary resource hogs but still maintain comprehensive security protection.

Haven't found anything, as no processes stay up high enough to show up. Display OEIS sequences Payroll tax on wheat given as wages Old sci-fi short story where protagonist (a doctor) realizes infant is a serial murderer? or new cable? The DDK itself is a free download from Microsoft. Homepage


If that doesn't work, disable the onboard wired NIC (Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller) in Device Manager, and the problem should stop immediately. To get more information toward that end, I decided to look at CPU usage at the thread and stack level. I use this technique to start Task Manager* elevated without facing a UAC prompt. *: No offence, but I start Process Explorer for the heavy stuff and leave task manager running Well after messing around with Process Monitor (I gathered that it's Filemon with additional features) I'm still unsure as to the problem.

Ideally, the graph background should clearly show when data gathering started, perhaps by not drawing the rulings prior to the first data point. Because I want access to detailed information about system processes, as well as my own, I also specify the /e option on Vista, which causes Windows to present a UAC prompt Without them it's difficult to hang on to the argument.

I also used Process Explorer based on your article for the search. System Process High Cpu Windows 2008 R2 It's made playing video games, watching shows, and all that jazz extremely irritating. Another case closed, this time with Process Explorer, Kernrate, and a helpful Broadcom driver developer. I guess now I'll just wait for the new driver and see if that fixes the problem.

Installing the new version has made the system process nice and quite again. Process Explorer Download reboot. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? and did you try the partition with w7 on it?

  2. It should be faster than XP.

  8. Many Thanks.
  9. One way to look inside a thread’s execution is to look at the thread’s stack with Process Explorer.

Thank you for taking the time to report it. To output the activity of the System process only, I selected the Enable Advanced Output option on the Filter menu and selected Include 'System'. Kernrate I've seen a few other posts elsewhere with the same problem but none with a fix.

You could open that file using Notepad or Wordpad, (make sure you don't set the system to "always" open with Notepad), and see if there are any time stamps for each Besides keeping my computers running smoothly, my vigilance sometimes helps me spot performance and reliability problems in Windows and third-party code. i presumed it was the windows wireless zero config service that was causing this, but that was one of the first services that i killed.

Process Explorer shows the threads running in a process on the Threads page of the Process Properties dialog, so I double-clicked on the System process and switched to the Threads page If someone came across a driver update that can resolve this issue, do let me know. agentx002Feb 25, 2013, 1:58 AM swifty_morgan said: i shied away from w8 so i can't give an honest opinion/resolve. The spikes only seem to consume about 40-50% CPU, but it will pause everything on the computer (including winamp and my mouse) during the short spike.

The harddrive was running in DMA5 once more, and idle system processes were back below 4%. what are your temps? Updating to the latest drivers from Dell didn't help. Vista says the driver is up to date and it won't allow it to be removed or disabled.

Reply anonymouscommenter says: April 24, 2008 at 3:22 am Mark, can you ask Broadcom if the changes to the driver had anything to do with TCP/Offload or TOE? Some examples: Zero configuration wireless networking service Windows image acqusition (WIA) service SSDP discovery service FAX service etc. But it was the extra 3% of the wireless-network module that showed me what my problem was.
