    High cpu usage when downloading

    Whenever I'm downloading a file off the network in my flat, threre will be random spikes of 100% CPU usage It makes everything lag really badly. I'm using an Epox 8RDA+ wwhcih has the nForce 2 chipset, and I'm using the onboard lan. This happens even if I use a PCI NIC as well though. Is this a normal thing to happen, or is there something wrong with my setup?

    Re:High cpu usage when downloading

    I don't have spikes but there is a considerable CPU load when the bandwidth usage gets high (about 40% when I'm doing 8-9Mb/s on an XP1700+ with a Realtek PCI network card). I always considered this as normal.

    I expect some CPU usage, but not 100%, and the really frustrating thing is that my average download speed is well down on everyone elses. I think there must be something in the network config I'm missing, but I don't know what to look for

    Thats odd... check to see if perhaps its your kernel. Grab a different one that has worked well in the past and see if that changes anything. Also before even going there, check the CAT5 and hub/switch port. You could have a flaky cable and/or port on the network hub/switch.

    Re:High cpu usage when downloading

    I think I've found the problem, it seems to happen when I have high HD access. I'm pretty sure its due to a poor IDE driver, as I'm using the nforce2 chipset, and I can't get it to run at ata66 with DMA enabled, so I'm playing around with the kernel atm to see what I can do. I'll post in here if I have any luck
