    Forgive me if this is a repeat post.

    In BI under the "other" tab from Blue Iris Options, there is a number field for CPU Usage factor. What is the function of this setting? Right now it is at the default setting of 1.000 but I am curious if this would have any impact on CPU usage and performance. I have done all the other tweaks as mentioned in other threads regarding CPU usage, but I am curious what this particular item actually does.
    Thanks,

    The BI Help file calls this the "CPU usage divisor". Per the Help File:

    Oh ok, so it is not related to performance enhancement, just a modifier to get correct performance reporting.
    Thanks so much!
