CPU Usage too high in High Sierra
CPU Usage is too high while using one drive.
I have the same problem with Onedrive as reported by others - CPU on MBP15" is right now 137%, fan is whirling.
I have finder integration enabled
I think it takes too long to sync
I think not having git-like file type sync controls to really make this excessive CPU problem worse.
Considered moving away from Dropbox. Changed my mind after 2 days of using OneDrive. Slow sync, problems with filenames, incredibly high CPU usage. Unusable for me.
My CPU is always at 95%+, although OneDrive has synced everything.
The only short term fix I have found helpful for the CPU usage is to stop the finder extension.
Continually exhausting my cpu on syncs.. this is ridiculous, get some better engineers.
Consistently pegs the CPU even when done syncing. This is a disaster.

Ahhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is ridiculous and inevitably poor engineering with lacklustre testing. I literally have no CPU left to actually do the work I'm trying to do in MS apps.
A clean reboot seems to solve for a little while but then I'm quickly back to square one.
OneDrive for Mac team is a joke, this issue has been there for SO long. Microsoft really isn't taking Mac users seriously. The OneDrive support is also not helping to prioritise this issue.

98% and killing my battery. I thought I needed a new battery, no just a broken app.
75% and according to the interface it was doing nothing and everything was up to date. :/
no comment needed...... Pathetic
Almost 1,500 votes and still no response :(
I cant work with onedrive in Mac. So much ram and CPU. Crazy¡¡¡
OneDrive and distnoted start hogging up tons of CPU in Activity Monitor, then Finder joins them. OneDrive stops responding, and then my Macbook Pro shutsdown, I guess to save the CPU from overheating (the cooling fans sound like they are going to turn the laptop into a helicopter).
Constant high CPU with OneDrive on Mojave, really annoying! OneDrive for Business seems to work fine but my personal OneDrive is terrible.
Same issue on Mojave. This is pathetic, come on Microsoft. This has been an issue for far too long. Stop upgrading your UI and start making software that people actually feel good using.
I have been searching for solution of this issue again as it came back after SMC reset. It worked for few days, but when I switched on my Mac (I usually don't do that, I just close/open the lid) it happened again - CPU consumption of OneDrive was 98,8% !!! I simply turned OneDrive off and fan has switched off immediately. I really don't understand it why that big company as Microsoft haven't found solution yet. Probably we are minor customers. I'm thinking about another solution. MacOS Mojave 10.4.4, Office 365, OneDrive 18.213.0826.0018
I have the same issue. Considering switching to Google Drive.
Onedrive is just memory junkie. It consumes all of my RAM without many tasks!
It is amazing how video editing software uses less memory than OneDrive. There is clearly a memory leak.
For 19.062.0331.0004 ，CPU is acceptable，but RAM usage is too much. It can not free memory auto.
I have to quit and restart again !
Sorry to say that the fix I mentioned earlier, is only temporary. The CPU usage is high again on my mac after a few days (suspends?)
