Installed upgrade on Cubase 7.0.1 (64bit) host. OS Windows 7 (64).
VST Performance Meter shows the Disk Cache Load pegged at 100%…even when nothing is playing back.
Prior to the update, there wasn’t any indication on the meter at all. Windows Performance Monitor shows disk activity at 1% Highest active time.
NOTE: I run my system without any page-files. Perhaps that is was is making it appear to peg?
When I look at process explorer, my system is basically idling while playing back a project with 4 Midi/VSTs and 10 analog tracks with 32 samples in the ASIO buffer setting. CPU never goes over 33%. I have 32GB of ram and only use 5 GB during the whole execution. Disk activity just barely registers.
IS this normal behavior for the meter, or a bug?
UPDATE: I added page-files to the OS Drive and the Project drives and it didnt change the meter from pegged.
