Topic "WinSCP 5.1.0 Build 2625 - High CPU Usage"

Author Message


We are using WinSCP 5.1.0 to transfer files from our Windows 2008 R2 x64 SQL Servers to other remote servers.
The WinSCP.exe*32 process consumes aprox 50% of the CPU.
If we initiate a second transfer in parallel, it takes up the rest of the CPU.

File Protocol is = SFTP,
Port 22
Preferred SSH protocol = 2
Encryption Options = Default value

Is there a way to decrease the amount of CPU used by WinSCP?
Any recommendations will be appreciated.
AS i mentioned, our servers run SQL, and the high cpu usage of WinSCP is a big concern in our case since we may run into CPU performance issues if WinSCP consumes that much CPU power.
