CPU load is high, all cores seem to be used. Can I use OMP_NUM_THREADS to reduce cores usage for some other work?
Which macOS Client SDK version?
I have this issue on all Mac and Linux versions, all the time (many versions over past year).
To Reproduce(If applicable)
No special steps, I run zoom, and watch with “top” what the load is;. It’s often more than 8. Doing any work on other apps became an exercise in patience.
Device (please complete the following information):
Both my Linux and Mac laptops have this. All versions. This is either a terrible feature or a bug.
I know of no app that hoards my resources as much as zoom. And in over a year of active use, this has not improved at all.
The worst app to compete with zoom appears to be thunderbird mail client, but also editing a google doc in the browers become like 10x as slow. Moving the mouse to get me to switch context to multi-task or keep notes while doing the zoom is a nightmare. it’s like being back on a PC in 1980s. No wonder, the load can spike to over 10 sometimes.
Does zoom use OpenMP, can I set OMP_NUM_THREADS to like 2? This way at least the MT’s are not used.
