    Hi !„I've installed Synchronet 3.18 , and configured the FidoNet using Binkt .„Every time an event happens, the SBBS Services consumes more than 50% of the„system CPU ( i've even used a last-gen Core i7 as host, and the issue persist„), now the VM is running on its official host a Dual Xeon 5460 based server („should be more than enough ) , the VM is set for 4 vCPU and 4GB of memory.„I've tried using Windows XT, Windows 2003, Windows 2008 and now Windows 2012R2„all had the same behavior, when it start a Binkt event it uses almost all CPU„available after finishing the exchange process.„Using the Process Explorer i see that the sbbsNTsvcs appears to be in some kind„of loop , on the Microsoft C Runtime„Start Address ucrtbase.DLL!_crt_at_quick_exit+0x20 ( this "loop" is using the„50+ cpu resources according the process explorer ) „Restarting the comm services solves the problem until the next event get into„place.„Have anyone seen this kind of behavior ? or have any tips where i can„research/fix this issue ?„„Regards,„„Alexandre F.S.Figueiredo„„---„ Ģ Synchronet Ģ SoftSolutions - telnet://bbs.softsolutions.net.br:2023„

This isn't the correct message area for Synchronet support questions, but in general: the log output from binkit should give you some indication of what's going on and the cause of the high CPU utilization.„„Dream Master mentioned a high CPU utilization issue with BinkIt recently, but then said he resolved it, though I don't know what the problem or solution was with any detail. <shrug>„-- „ digital man„„This Is Spinal Tap quote #11:„Nigel Tufnel: No. no.
