For practical purposes, rule of thumb, what’s a reasonable CPU usage to aim for? I’ve have a general feeling that having constant high rates is going to be trouble. I think laptops, rather than servers, are designed with user interaction in mind i.e. bursts of high resource use, periods of calm.
At the minute I’m keeping my patches below 30%. The fan isn’t going on and off all the time, that feels good to me. Bit unscientific I know, but any practical experience to share?
