Decrease CPU priority so ODrive doesn't interfere with other processes

Hi there,

I’m somewhat of a power user (software development industry). After making a stack of file changes ODrive will consume 100% of the CPU of a single core. That’s fine - it’s doing it’s job - but it hurts any process I have running on that CPU core.

If I set the process priority to ODrive to “Below normal” the issue disappears. Surely it makes sense to have ODrive permanently running at a lower priority at startup?

Hi @ben4,
Thanks for the observations. Our overhead will be reduced in the next major release, but lowering odrive priority is an interesting tactic too. I will pass the idea along.


When is the next major release expected to be shipped?

Hi @david3,
This is the best answer I have for that, currently:
