CPU usage bursts to 100%, Energy Impact up to 100

I noticed that my battery life is significantly shorter when running BetterTouchTool. Haven’t noticed this before. Activity Monitor shows periodic bursts of 100% CPU and an Energy Impact value of 100 for several seconds at a time, every 10 to 20 seconds.

I haven’t noticed this before, and am wondering whether it’s an issue introduced in one of the recent updates

Affected input device:
External USB keyboard (with N-key rollover), Bluetooth Magic Mouse


Device information:

  • Type of Mac: MacBook Pro (2018)
  • macOS version: 10.14.6
  • BetterTouchTool version: 3.149

Additional information:
Experimental Sync feature is enabled. Storage backend: Dropbox. Dropbox app is running, and sync is active.

Process sample: sample.zip (105.3 KB)

Your sample looks like an issue with the experimental sync engine. Do you have cloud sync enabled in BTT? If so, dropbox or icloud?

//edit ah sorry just noticed the additional info! I'd try to disable sync for now. I have only seen this issue with Dropbox yet, possibly iCloud works better. I'm not yet sure what's causing it - if possible it would be great if you'd open the BTT preferences, help menu => export debug information and send the resulting folder to andreas@folivora.ai )

Done! :email: emailed the debug information to you.
