Banshee CPU usage peaks and maintains >= 100% (according to htop) when I do simple, nontrivial things. Even deleting files via Banshee results in >= 100% CPU usage.

I have tried several sugggestions from other AskUbuntu questions such as disable BPM and other extensions.

Really, all I do is delete one song via Banshee, and it takes up >= 100% CPU usage and never stops.

  • Have you tried purging it sudo apt-get purge banshee , clean sudo apt-get autoremove , then install it again without optional packages sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install bamshee – user.dz Oct 19 '15 at 10:04

It is answered in top command on ubuntu multicore cpu shows cpu usage >100%

By default, top displays CPU usage as a percentage of a single CPU. On multi-core systems, you can see percentages of CPU usage are greater than 100%. You can toggle this behavior by hitting Shift + i while top is running to show the overall percentage of available CPUs in use.

htop is a better alternative of top. In htop, you can see how your programs consuming all of the 32 cores.
