The initial file scan is pretty cpu intensive, so that’s probably what that was.
As far as it going to 100% when the network connection dies, that’s interesting… I might not be detecting a closed connection well, and might be trying to continue to push data through the closed socket. I’ll see if I can replicate this by unplugging a nic while streaming.
Thanks, that would be great to test. This activity was definitely not desirable and I encountered 3/4 hours after the server had first been installed. The service was problably on its 3rd or 4th session of having ever run.
The 100% activity was constant. I realised something was wrong as my laptop was huffing and puffing so loud and normally I hardly ever hear its fan due to its low heat mobile cpu.
