Hi,
I've been using version GNS3.05 beta for router practice. When I open
one or two cosole sessions, my CPU utilization pegs at 100% and PC
becomes unusable. I'm using a 1.7GHZ dual core intel processor w/2 Gig
of RAM. I'm not running any other programs concurrently w/GNS3.


Does anyone have any tips on eliminating this problem? Are there any
settings/options ?

Thanks in Advance..

Yep, you should set up the idlepc value. Consult the new GNS3
tutorial, page 18.: http://tinyurl.com/6zqs8t

Awesome. Thanks. Serves me right for being lazy and not reading the
tutorial....

No problem... BTW GNS3, and Dynamips for that matter, gives better
performance on Linux, especially if you compare it to Vista. If you
want to play with Linux, I would recommend openSUSE 11.0 because of
famous 1-Click install technology which provides also GNS3.
