High cpu usage and physical memory usage

I have been having a problem where my CPU Usage and Physical Memory usage has been through the roof. my computer spec's are:

Win 7 64 bit
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
Intel Quad Core i5 2.3 GHz
4 GB DDR3 RAM


When I am out of star wars my CPU Usage is 10% and my Physical Memory usage is 20%. As soon as I launch swtor and get in game my CPU usage goes up to 80% and Physical memory to 90%. I am attempting to get a live stream going and I can't even run the programs necessary without being at 100% cpu usage and completely lagging out. Thanks for the support in this matter.

EDIT: Just some more info I have noticed regarding this issue. In my processes there are 2 swtor.exe's the first one runs at around 1,400,000 K roughly. The second one runs at roughly 400,000 K. I have tried to close each of them after loading the game and it crashes my client for each one.

I have the same problem... High CPU and RAM Usage.

Win 7 64 bit
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 2,5Ghz
G.Skill 4GB (2x2GB)
Asus GeForce GTX280 1GB GDDR3

All games work fine in this computer.

I have the same issue with two separate entries for swtor.exe running, one with 426,996k bytes and the other with 1.712,039k bytes. I am not one of those having the major system crash issues, but it does seem to be using a LOT of system resources in a very strange way. My system:

i7 2600k
16GB Corsair Renegade DDR3 RAM
EVGA GTX470 superclocked card
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Seems to really run my temps up too, with anything else my CPU sits around 40C, with this game it sits at about 10C higher.

It's also using up about 89% of my GPU resources on my video card and running it at a whopping 83C. It's insane.

This game has a terribad memory leak, just boot the game and check the resources used, come back in 30 min and check it again, until bioware decides they want to fix serious coding issues Ive fixed this RAM usage problem by downloading a program called Memory Cleaner

www.koshyjohn.com/software/memclean/

and then in the options select Trim processess' working set every 5 minutes

This solves the problem until bioware decides to stop twiddling their thumbs and doing nothing

This program actually works well.. took TOR from 1.6 GB and 500mb to 500 mb and 50 mb after the trim, very nice indeed. Thanks.

Run the game in XP SP3 compatibility mode and let us know what that does to your temps and cpu gpu usage.

If you guys are using laptops with dual gpu's 1 intel 1 nvidia trun of the intel one that will force the game to use the nvidia and should result in much better performance.

I have Windows XP sp3 as such (32 bits of course), with 2.7 real RAM, and we are MANY to have the game lag to death or freeze.

Since the latest January patch (1.1.0a), my RAM and virtual memory get overloaded in about 5 minutes on Alderaan (I'm objective/factual here, not even kidding).

I never had such issues in all the other games I played on this computer, even in PVP/FPS with good graphics and plenty of players around, and I that was with only 2 GB of RAM (I increased it just for SWTOR, in vain).

All in all, it seems that the game gobbles up about 6.5 GB of ram very very quickly. Players with very high ram are experiencing less issues of course.

I posted a detailed summary (near the bottom here) for what it is worth.

I'll try running Memory Cleaner, which I already have, but doesn't seem to do much on Win XP.

I have the same problem.

My specs:
i5 2500k
GTX 460
4GB DDR3

Before launching SWTOR, with Firefox open with several tabs:
My CPU is 1%, and RAM is 20%

As points of comparison:

With LOTRO running, plus Firefox in the background, my CPU usage is at 2%, and my RAM is at 50%.

If I play Crysis 2 multiplayer my CPU is ~50% and my RAM is at ~65%.


For SWTOR it's like this:

Before launching the game I'm at 1% CPU and 20% RAM.

At the character select screen I'm at 25% CPU and 50% RAM.

Once my character loads in fully it's at 40% CPU and 70% RAM.


Then when I do these specific things it increases RAM in small increments:

- when crossing into map zones/areas
- when interacting with NPCs
- whenever there's a loading screen, be it for PvP match, starting a Flashpoint, landing on a planet etc...


On one occasion I loaded SWTOR and I was on my own ship and the RAM was about 55%. I landed on Alderaan and it was immediately 70%. I took a taxi from the spaceport to Wardpost Landa, and every time the taxi crossed a zone line en route the RAM went up another 1 or 2 %. When I arrived at Warpost Landa the RAM was at 90%, and just after starting the game it was time to restart the game or have it crash.

It doesn't stop at 95%. It keeps going up incrementally until it crashes. I've seen it hit 98%

P.S. !!! I saw other people post that they have 8GB and even someone with 24GB of RAM with the same issue of it eventually reaching over 95% and crashing... SO, I would say, don't go out and buy more RAM. Wait for a fix to the leak.

Additional note: It seems this problem is most notable on planets. I noticed on Taris, Alderaan, and Balmorra - could be more. Someone else mentioned Quesh. Someone said maybe it's related to the quest tracker. On my own ship or on Carrick Station (Republic Fleet) I see lower RAM levels.
Who's scruffy looking?
