we recently implemented Discourse on our site and our community is having a great experience (see our implementation here).
One thing that troubles me a bit though is CPU usage: I’m writing this on a 2014 Macbook Pro (OSX 10.10.1), and both in Chrome and Firefox, Discourse is consuming between 70% and 100% CPU. It sometimes reaches the point where leaving the forum open is slowing down my entire laptop.
I’ve verified that this happens both on our own forum, but also on this forum, so it seems there’s something in Discourse that may not be working quite right.
Any ideas what might be causing this?
