Dixprs fluctuates mostly between ​19 and 21 percent cpu load, which in my
mind is not too bad considering the Pi is not very powerful.  Aprx
consistently shows "0%", which I assume means something less than 1%, which
is impressively low.  I think that shows how much more efficient compiled
applications can be as opposed to those written in interpreted scripting
languages like Python.  Also dixprs runs a web server and interacts with a
database, so that stuff probably makes a difference as well.
