Reduce CPU Utilization

Dear EE Members

We developed project in Visual Studio 2010 C#.net, to download and upload the thousand files through sftp and update the log the with file name, time stamp and path details for every file in the SQL 2005 database. we are using three timers first one for upload process file, second one for download the process file and third one for download the log file, each timer will access the SQL Database when sending and receiving the file. During this all process CPU Utilization is going more then 80%. How we can reduce this CPU Utilization.

Thanks

Is the app multi-threaded or able to make use of multiple CPU cores?  Is it a 32 bit or 64 bit app?  Is the app set up so you can throttle the number of files being processed simultaneously?  There are several options for debugging and tracing through code, I couldn't say which one would be the most useful to you, it depends on how you've structured the code.

There are a lot of component that can waste CPU on your process.

   - Sftp - What is your Provider ?
   - Update database only 1 time per file ?
   - Have you any method to query remote Directory ?

. Net 2.0 includes a class to transfer files over Ftp.
  It supports also listfiles on remote directory, but when you need also exact dates and sizes it is a bad option (WebRequestMethods.Ftp.GetFileSize and WebRequestMethods.Ftp.GetDateTimestamp very slow).

If you are using a Gb NIC and putting lots of data on the wire you will drive CPU high.

what we did is we separated the SFTP processes and others, so SFTP works only when transferring files and the other relevant processes are separate,    

we have managed to cut CPU time by almost half

Follow eeRoot's link or buy a code profiler to get a breakout of where your code spends the most time, rather than even educated guesses.  And I'll add to the guesses that it could be context switching if you have too many threads, or if sql is local it could be the sql.
