Anybody else using Kontiki alongside X1

Postby Kenward » Tue Aug 12, 2008 8:34 am

It is that time of the month again. X1's "take no prisoners" mode has kicked in and it is thrashing my disk and eating processor time.

In the absence of any useful feedback from X1 – I turned off real time index long ago, to no effect – I thought I'd see if anyone else is using the Kontiki file sharing software. I have it because the BBC uses it for TV downloads.

Kontiki also hogs resources. I wondered if the two might be ganging up and making life even more difficult.

Anyone else using Kontiki?

No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.

Kenward,

Did you turn off real-time indexing of files, email or both?

Everything. No indexing in real time.

But every few weeks, X1 decides that it needs to spend a couple of days, it seems like weeks, hogging nearly half of the CPU (as reported by Windows Task Manager) on my dual-core AMD processor.

While this is going on, I am sorely tempted to dig out my electric typewriter. At least it means I get some reading and filing done.

One day I will find time to log this terrible behaviour, which is a perennial issue in these parts.
