    I've been working on a game for a while and recently I've noticed that there are random FPS spikes when I test it. After some searching online and failure after failure, I decided to test something.
    I created a brand new game which contains literally nothing in it, it is literally just a camera which is rendering nothing. After running it for a second I can see many spikes forming in something called "EditorLoop".
    I have no idea what can be causing this and whether this could possibly be an obvious cause for FPS spikes in my game, but I'd rather ask here before I do anything else. ProfilerScreenshot.PNG
    In case anyone knows anything similar to this, in my proper game I occasionally have "PlayerLoop" suddenly spike similarly to the example shown. My proper game also has "EditorLoop" spikes as well. If it helps I'm using Unity version 2019.3.0a5, and I upgraded my game from 2018.3.2f1.

    I am new to Unity in terms of troubleshooting these types of problems, so any help will be appreciated. I hope the information supplied is good enough.

    Unity 2019.3 is currently a alpha version and not made for production.
    You can make a bug report and post that bug report id to the 2019.3 Alpha forum.

    In general this editor spike should not make a problem in the build version.
    You can make a debug build and let the Profiler connect to it so you can get a proper reading from the build game.

    Please enable editor profiling (Profile Editor toggle in the Profiler Window toolbar) to see what is happening inside "EditorLoop" sample.
    "EditorLoop" marker is Editor-specific and designated to show Editor only activities like drawing editor windows, updating assets, etc. It doesn't exist in player builds.
