When I start the NowSMS service, CPU usage jumps to a constant 25%. I have a quad core CPU, so I am assuming that NowSMS is running one of the processor cores at 100%.

Could something be configured wrong?

Hi Scotty,

We have had several reports of this happening with some modems and the current version of NowSMS.

I assume you are using a USB connected GSM modem?

In the 2014.05.30 version, we change some modem handling logic to work better with some problematic GSM modems. However, this change causes high CPU usage with some other modems.

It is possible to manually edit the SMSGW.INI file to change back to the behavior of previous versions. Under the [SMSGW] header of SMSGW.INI, add:


Those settings should resolve the issue. Our next update will revert to these settings by default.
