Subject: [gentoo-user] Dolphin, CPU usage and process ID to which window.
Date: Tue, 08 Sep 2020 03:05:46
1 Howdy,
3 Has anyone else noticed that Dolphin is using more CPU than it used to? 
4 It used to sit around 1% or even less.  For the past month or so, mine
5 has increased to 2, 3, 4 and 5% with occasional brief instances of even
6 higher usage.  I notice this in top.  Memory usage is normal tho.  Mine
7 is usually a few hundred MBs or so.  Closing and restarting Dolphin
8 seems to help for a little while. 
10 Another question.  I use top to see what is using the CPU so much.  When
11 it is Dolphin, I can't tell which window it is.  I sometimes have a few
12 instances of Dolphin open at the same time.  Sometimes I have my spot
13 marked by highlighting a file or files.  If I kill it, I don't get to
14 write down where I was.  Thing is, I can't tell from top which window it
15 is that is using the CPU more than it should.  Is there a way to figure
16 out which process goes with which window or running instance of
17 Dolphin?  In top, it shows a ID number like this.

29 Is there a way to know what window that ID belongs too? 
31 I was hoping the upgrade today would help.  It doesn't seem so. 
33 Thanks.
