CPU Usage too high in High Sierra
CPU Usage is too high while using one drive.
Onedrive enters a state where no files are in the updating list but sync is indicated in the one drive menu item and it takes 97% of CPU on my macbook pro with high sierra on it.
My little snitch doesn't show any network activity.
It would be great if there was a CPU throttle feature.
Had twitter discussion with microsoft support about this.

Is there any fix for this issue? It appears widespread and is causing huge problems?
Same issue here on:
MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2011)
Processor 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB
MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6
Onedrive on High Sierra here, 99,6 % CPU after restart. Two instances of Onedrive, Private and Company, all background process, no files updating. I quitted the process from the Activity Monito. It even took precedence above WindowServer. Restarting Onedrive from the Finder made things normal again.

Same issue on a Mac Mini (2014) running Mojave. CPU usage spikes, temperature increases dramatically and I'm forced to quit the app.

I'm still experiencing this problem sporadically with OneDrive for Business, even though I have no changes to sync.
MacBook Pro 14,1 with High Sierra (10.13.5).
Any news on a fix?
Not sure how often it happens, but I see over 95% CPU on High Sierra, MacMini. When this is happening, I cannot get Excel to open - the spinning pinwheel. Have to shut OneDrive down, then restart, then try to open Excel. I send the trouble reports to Apple when prompted. I don't know if this is an Apple Problem or something to do with OndDrive
same problem too
MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017 ), OS X 10.13.6 (17G65).
Same issue. I do encounter this issue.

MacOS High Sierra v10.13.6: Onedrive is is causing high CPU usage[ >98%] continuously even while running in the background with No network activity by the app.
Is Microsoft sleeping on this? The original issue was reported in January 2018.
I have two instances running (one business and one private). Executing this seems to at least fix the CPU usages for the private client:
Hope it helps some people.

Frequently onedrive uses 100% cpu when there is nothing to sync - no files changed, and everthing has been up to date for days. I have to force quite onedrive to stop the fan from running full time and make the macbook pro usable again.
I get this issue on my 2014 iMac ( High Sierra ), 100% CPU usage and temperature spiking, however, on my 2007 MacBook Pro ( EL Capitan ) Onedrive is syncing fine with minimal CPU usage. Both machines sync to the same Onedrive account

Running at 100% on MBP from 2017 10.13.6. Will have to uninstall if this continues.
