    I sent this last night, and it has not been posted. Wanted to resend it. I’m considering the other products, but my concern is with the Tick Data Downloader. The Application was Max’ing out a 4-core system. I thought maybe I had selected to much data to download at the same time, so I started downloading one at a time; after it had finished downloading one of the pair, the application was still using 98% of my CPU.  Any ideas why the application would utilize that much CPU, when it had finished downloading and should have been idle?


    Thanks, James

    we would need to investigate this deeper. You could provide recent log files from the TD /log folder

    So I just recently purchased SQ and started trying again to download data using TickDownloader. It still used 100% of my cpu. I then tried to do just one currency pair. Worked fine for a while, but when I came back to my computer 100% cpu just trying to download one currency pair. I have an 8 core processor which runs about 3% utilization, when nothing is running. The only process I had running was the TickDownloader. The previous suggestion in the thread was to check the log file. There is nothing really interesting in it. I copied it below. Where there is ####, I took my username out.

    I notice that folks put in a lot of threads about the download being slow. When CPU is at 100%, the single download crawls. It may be that some of them are experiencing the same problem, but not checking there cpu utilization.

    Let me know if you need additional information from me on this problem.
