I was told to move this to the bug report forum.
I tried to see if I had the same issue and I don’t you doing something specific?
- Uninstall Hearthstone if you have it installed. (It is the smallest game to download)
- Set your Network Bandwidth/ latest update limit to 1000 kb (1mb/s).
- Start downloading hearthstone.
- Note the CPU usage of Agent.exe.
- On my machine it reports around 12%. I have an 8 core cpu (4 hyperthreaded), so 100% / 8 = 12%. It is pegging a single core.
- while hearthstone is slowly downloading at 1MB/s change the limit back to 0 kb (unlimited).
- Note the CPU usage of Agent.exe
- On my machine it drops to about 1%, and the cpu fan becomes quiet (which is why I noticed the problem in the first place).
I would be very surprised if someone else doesn’t experience the same thing. I have reproduced this behavior on three different machines.
Same here. I am updating my COD MW.
In the night time, cpu fans are making white noises because of the update agent that takes about 30% CPU usage ( i5 - 4690 )…
The CPU usage goes down to less than 6% as soon as I set download speed limit to 0.
Yeah, this is really irritating. I show a fairly slow connection so I have to throttle downloads for the sake of others, so I’m running 30%+ usage for days on end. Torrent programs don’t do this when throttled, wish Blizzard would address the fact the app does.
Im having the same problem. but I did not know that it was the throttling. I thought battle.net just did this while downloading a game. I have not installed Battle.net in years. As soon as I set the values back to zero for unlimited, no problem.
So I sat my MSI GL65-9SD on full fan speed all the way through 30GB of World of Warcraft at 3000 kb as we have a few people on a single connection…
Back to leaving it on over night when the full 7500 kb speed is avaliable if I want to play a new game.
