Ok, so now we know the culprit. (bitrate script)
I don’t like how the commands are executed on that perl script. I am going to rewrite the part related to cpus and load. This info is available in /proc/cpuinfo and /proc/loadavg. I think this is because of reusing file handler in a busy env, maight be also a perl bug.
I have some experience in perl 😉 but I will have to rely on you for testing.
I am going to change how the data is acquired, never like it to use open and pipe instead of qx//
