Mavproxy extremely high CPU usage


So I happened to check the onboard Pi’s resource usage and mavproxy/python are using literally all of the CPU, causing throttling. The robot is sitting out of the water and turned on. Rebooting does not reduce this.

When I checked a few weeks ago, the usage was sitting at a comfortable 25-30%. Between then and now I put ROS Kinetic on the Pi, and I’m wondering if there’s some magic commands I ran to let mavproxy go unchecked… I’m genuinely puzzled as to how mavproxy is suddenly this resource hungry :confused:

Hi Ethan,

indeed mavproxy is not CPU friendly.
I would recommend to replace mavproxy with mavlink-router.
