`npm run watch-poll` causes high CPU

Posted 3 years ago by JTallis

I'm not entirely sure if this is the right category.

I have Laravel Homestead installed with a project, on Windows. Running npm run watch-poll results in a CPU increase of 20%. I'm unsure if this is normal but when I was using gulp with Laravel 5.3, it would use probably around 6% which leads me to believe 20% is a tad too high.

Does anyone have any input on this?

As a matter of fact, the VBoxHeadless.exe process when running the above hovers around 28 to 30% CPU.
