Fix the problem where DisplayLinkUserAgent eats 38% of my CPU
OS is windows 10, DLUA is 184.108.40.206.0. This often gets in a state where the user agent sets there using between 35 and 38% of CPU.
7.9 M5 release for Windows is now available from our download area. Please create a support ticket for individual investigation if you meet any issue.
Experiencing similarissue with Dell Latitude E6440, Win7, while connected to Dell 3100 USB dock. DisplayLink User Agent is using between 30 and 40% CPU. I installed 8.1MO and the issue persists. Thank you.
DisplayLink STILL haven't fixed this? It's been years
What is the latest recommendation? Other than buy different hardware
Why is the agent jumping from 2-3% CPU to 25% CPU or higher and not releasing. I am forced to stop the service and restart and that usually fixes it until the next time it jumps to 25% or higher. I have Windows 7 Dell 7450 i7. I have replaced by machine twice. My dual monitors and my Dell D3100 dockingstation twice. Not sure why me or what is happening specifically. I am using version 8.1.848.0.
Help me please!
I have S.O. Win7 and displaylink M8 v.8.0.923.0
Displaylink working whit 25% CPU. Constant!!!
Help me please!
I have same problem. My system is W7 and displaylink is last version M8 v. 8.0.923.0.
Help me please!
Same problem here using Ubuntu 16.04. The displaylink process works always as if everything were being drawn to the monitor connected with the displayport adapter.
Using a different window manager than Compiz solves the problem. Also disabling OpenGl in the compiz settings does it, but that leaves you with an unusable desktop where you can't move any windows.
At the moment, when using Linux with a displaylink adapter, the possibilities are these:
a) high CPU load with compiz
b) low CPU load without compiz
Unity needs compiz, so Ubuntu/Unity is going to have a high CPU load when watching videos or moving windows, or playing.
Also seeing 20-80% CPU usgae on Ubuntu 16.04, with latest driver (May release).

DispalyLinkMana consumes 75% of cpu
Hi, for me the solution was to exclude the files described in the link below to be scanned for malware.
Hello Tom, why don't you also reply to your tech support ticket with a new set of logs so we can actually look at it? I'm afraid you're an isolated case but we can look into it if we get some information to do so.

This did not resolve the issue for me, in fact it made it worse. Now this causes my Intel Display Driver to crash, after which one of my monitors flickers and is unusable until a reboot. The driver used to crash occasionally before the patch, but it would just crash and I could then kill the DisplayLinkUserAgent process to restore functionality.

Yes yes yes me too with an XPS 13. Just had something like 38% and everything moved like it was in molasses.
Also having servere CPU load with DisplyLinkUserAgent.
I noticed that sometimes the Intel Driver crashes and right after it restores itself (common win10 problem on several systems) the CPU load in the DisplayLinkUserAgent goes into the sky.
Only fix up to now: Restart system :(

I have the same issue with my MS Surface Pro 3 - Can I please have “Dev Build for 21156" or a link to where I can create an issue from please.
Anonymous: I don't see how I can share a file with "anonymous". Please create a support ticket so we have your email address and so we can follow-up with you individually.
Arash: 7.9M5 is anticipated for the second half of February. The exact date will depend on how the testing progresses. I prefer delaying to knowingly release something not satisfactory!
Waiting for the release is a good idea if not too annoyed as development builds aren't fully tested and can bring collateral damage. That's why we do individual follow-ups. I will update the status of this suggestion when the driver is released. Therefore, if you have subscribed for email updates, you'll be notified. Alternatively, you can create a support ticket asking to be notified when 21156 is fixed.
