I have experienced big CPU usage when using ARD, around 60% when it is connected.
it wouldn't be a problem if the CPU usage would drop after I disconnect, but seems that AppleVNC gets stuck on it.
Can someone using Apple Remote Desktop to connect try following while connected:
SSH in to ATV
issue the following command:
check the AppleVNC process CPU usage
now disconnect and see if it drops.
On my side the usage would just stay even after I disconnect, hogging 55-60% of the CPU.
I will try to update with ARD client 3.2 and see if it changes and report later.
This has been true since ATV 1.0. I'd suggest using VNC sparingly, if at all. You can kill the VNC process and restart it to get back to normal CPU usages.
