The Shuffleboard/SmartDashboard have always caused high PC CPU/RAM usage for us, even when the window is sitting idle and the computer is not connected to the robot. I haven’t really had a reason to complain about this until now, though, as it is now causing crippling packet loss during robot operation. During operation yesterday, we noticed that, after examining log files, we were having spikes of 100% packet loss that were making the robot difficult to drive. Today, after some testing, it would appear that the packet loss was minimized after closing out the Shuffleboard window.
I noticed a lot of people talking about packet loss on CD were linking it to auto-updaters running in the background, although we don’t appear to have any. What options do we have besides not using the Shuffleboard at all? Is the issue possibly linked to something else?
