I´d just like to know your opinions about a certain matter.
I was using a tax programme originally written for WIN (of course) on my Linux system (Linux LIte 6.2) using playonlinux/WINE.
I had to do some configuration work in the settings of the tax programme first.
Well, the thing is: during the proccess the CPU Load suddenly got up to 100 %. Taking a look at my running conky showed me that.
But I didn´t notice it at once and when I noticed it the CPU was at 100 % for 2 to 3 minutes already, I guess.
Sure, the fan speed was going up as well but I didn´t notice it at once either as I had to put up with some other source of noise in the room at the time.
So I hope the CPU running at 100 % for some minutes hasn´t done anything bad to my computer (which BTW is a Lenovo H520e desktop model)…
It won’t hurt. When I render something, the CPU works constantly above 90% sometimes for hours long. The worst that can happen is that your cooling is insufficient (maybe the sinks clogged with some dust), and the CPU begins throttling. That means it temporarily reduces the clock frequency to lower power dissipation, thus avoid damage caused by excess heat.
I was quite startled at first as something like that hadn´t happened before.
Still, it´s good to have an instance of conky running at all times, I guess.
I doubt I would´ve noticed what was going on otherwise…
Thanks for tellling us about your experience…
