Question / Help high cpu usage [Fixed]

#1
I have switched from an old dual core i5 m 560 (2.65 GHz base speed) and gt 420M laptop using windows 7 to a server sporting a Intel Xeon E3-1220v5 (3.00 GHz base speed 3.50 GHz turbo) and a GT 710 gpu running Ubuntu 18.04 and the cpu speed goes up from 15% to 70% running the same setup......
The idle load has increased from 3% to 21%.
The server is running headless with a virtual display generated from nvidia-xconfig.
Anyone got any clue as to why the cpu load increased THIS much?
 
#2
You didn't give us any logs. Are you sure the headless configuration does indeed use the GPU? If not I would assume that the Mesa software OpenGL kicks in as a fallback..
 
#3
I got it to work. All it took was an update to the 410 nvidia drivers. now I am trying to set up video capture of a single window. so far I can only choice between streaming my entire screen or showing a screenshot of a single window but no video capture of a single window so far...
