I'm writing an application which basically takes images from pixelink camera and does some calculations on them.
I need to monitor the status of the system for 2 things: presence of camera and connection to SQL server.
I also have a preview feature.
Right now it's all being done by a two timers (one for preview and second for status) which run threads for status/preview.
On a decent Core 2 duo everything is quite smooth but on single core CPU responssivnes of the application is not so good (sometimes main form is frozen for couple of seconds).
How should i do those 2 processes so that they don't have an impact on application performance?
Thx for any info!
