    Currently we are using 4-6 Radcharts on a screen in our application and when we run our application its is consuming all the CPU. When we digged in the application we found it is because of enabling animation in chart view. But when we disabled the animation in chart controls it is still using 100% of CPU.

    Can you please suggest us if there is any other property or solution to disable the refreshing in charts.

    Currently we offer 2 charting solutions for the Silverlight platform - RadChart and RadChartView (represented by the classes RadCartesianChart, RadPieChart and RadPolarChart). 
    The RadChartView is the newer control which addresses some of the limitations and deficiencies that we have identified in the RadChart implementation over the years. It is easier to set up and has vastly improved performance.

    By migrating your application to RadChartView you should notice a significant improvement in performance and responsiveness. Have in mind that the two controls have very different architecture and not all features are supported by both of them.
    For detailed comparison between the two controls, you can check this help topic.

    I hope you will find the RadChartView control suitable for your project.
