There is a lag when using keyboard and mouse on QT based applications (e.g. Skype, VirtualBox) but not in the rest of the system.

The lag is "solved" when using UXA acceleration - 
Comment 1 Chris Wilson 2015-10-16 10:23:18 UTC
Based on previous investigations, my immediate suspicion is that the Qt applications are effectively running unthrottled and build up a long render queue.

Looking at intel-gpu-top or even intel-gpu-overlay should show the GPU maxed out (or nearly), and netstat --unix should (if I am right about the backlog being large enough) show pending bytes from the client to X.
Comment 2 Iván Perdomo 2015-10-16 11:16:56 UTC

How can I produce a log of the GPU usage so i can attach it to the bug report?

Thanks for the support
