[Bug 803943] Re: compiz consuming a lot of cpu


I have a Dell Mini 10v (atom N270, Intel GMA 950 graphics) running 11.10
and Unity.

I sshed into it from another machine and ran top.

If I have gnome-terminal maximized and sitting at the shell prompt, then
compiz consumes a steady 2% cpu.

If I have firefox maximized (like right now with this page's tab
showing), compiz consumes a steady 3% cpu.

If I play a video in vlc or smplayer, then compiz consumes 17-18% cpu

I don't understand why compiz needs to consume even 2 or 3% cpu when
doing nothing (firefox does the same, btw).

And I really don't undserstand why it needs to consume 17 or 18% cpu
when I'm playing a video and not doing any window management.
