I have just installed and started zcashd as I want to be able to monitor my balance and make payments from the command line.
Now zcashd consumes 150%+ cpu. Is there a way of reducing the cpu load while still being able to issue transactions?
I did not enable mining (no gen=1 in zcash.conf).
EDIT: I could rephrase the question to: what's the most lightweight wallet that allows monitoring balance and sending transactions via an api (web, rpc or command line)?
