Emby for Kodi High CPU usage even when idle

Recommended Posts

Peelige

Hi all,

 

I've been using emby for a few years now and have hit my first problem !  Hoping someone may be able to help.

 

Long story short, following a clean reboot the system will idle at around 5% cpu usage then gradually increase until both cpu cores hit 50% and remain at that level.

 

This only occurs when the emby for kodi plugin is enabled.  If I disable and use Embycon instead, the system is at the usual 5%,

 

Setup :

 

LibreELEC - 8.2.5
 
Emby Server - 3.5.3.0 (now within a docker container)
 
Kodi Companion - 2.0.3.0
 
Emby Addon Beta - 3.1.32a (also tried stable)
 
Skin - Arctic Zephyr
 
 
The issue presented itself a month or so ago, with no changes to the system other than plugin updates.
 
I also have another box on the network with same specs & versions (less emby server), same skin which connects to the main emby server however I do not have the issue on that machine.
 
Debug logging doesn't show much other than the following every second. Unknown if it would drive up the CPU usage :

                                            }

 

Could anyone please shed any light ?  I'm at a loss and could really do with the plugin working as Embycon doesn't support photos and music videos currently.

 

 

Thanks in advance for any help !

Please post a full normal log. Log snippets never help.

 

Q: With disabling Emby for Kodi you mean you also dropped the library or do you just disabled the addon?

Hi sualfred,

 

Many thanks for the quick reply.   

 

No, the kodi library is still as per the emby for kodi sync.  I have just diabled the emby for kodi addon and enabled embycon.  Videos play via the video addons -> embycon, not the library itself.

 

OK I understand the need for a log.  When you say full normal log, is that the kodi.log, but without debugging enabled ?

 

 

Cheers,

 

Neil

Ok thanks... All my logs seem to be debug, so I'll run a clean log tonight and upload tomorrow for you.

 

Thanks for your help, really appreciated.

Hi sualfred,
 
So I cleared log and rebooted at 8pm ish.  CPU was around 5-10% and ramped up to 50% each core this morning.
 
For the log, I ripped two more movies and added to the directories.  I just let emby discover these itself.

 

Cheers,

 

Neil
