I stumbled across insync’s CPU usage accidentally when I was looking at something else, but I’ll monitor it every, let’s say, 15 min, and report back here.
EDIT: Do you reckon that’s a good sampling interval ? I’m thinking of using
pidstat: would you have another suggestion ?
I’d risk to say it’s consistently green, like this:
but I’ll watch it more intently while I monitor the CPU. I’ve only seen the tray icon change color when files are being uploaded and when there’s a pending notification, like when someone updated a shared file (this is great !).
I should say:
insync is really really great, I’m happy I decided to go for it ! To think that I struggled so much with
grive, and didn’t get any feedback at all from the developers about the serious problems I bumped into. This file syncing arena is pretty arid for Linux. For P2P file syncing, I’m using
syncthing and is fabulous, both software and development team.
