  I've noticed some odd behavior recently with my VE Pro setup, it's usually been rock solid, but I've noticed that the CPU meter on the slave jumps around quite a bit and sometimes ends up jumping down to 0% which results in an audio drop out.   What might that be a symptom of usually?  I'm not running anything heavy duty, so I don't think I'm pushing the processor too hard, and I'm not even close to 100%.  Makes me think it's a networking issue...anything I should troubleshoot first? 

Mac Pro for master, Windows 7 pc for slave both with quad core i7's.
Cubase 8.0.10
Ve Pro 5.4 13682
Using and in the network setup.

That´s strange indeed. 

Did you check with different buffer settings on the soundcard and in the VE PRO Server Interface plug-in (the network buffer)?

Is there a reliable way to reproduce it (any specific plug-in that might cause this)?

Did you try different thread settings in the VE PRO 5 preferences on the slave computer (start with the highest possible setting)?

Yes I tried different buffer setting on both soundcard and network buffer.

Changing the number of threads seemed to steady it out.  I only have 2 instances and had it set on 2 threads, bumping it up to 4 seemed to help!
