To verify the application is working, you may use Test Settings to configure features that run in the background.
The Wii U the system performs background processes, such as downloading data, while the user continues to use the application. Downloading data consumes the most resources of any of the background processes. Generally, the system manages these processes so that they do not affect the application. However, when the system has an issue or the application calls system functions frequently, a problem may occur.
By running an application with BG Stress Mode enabled, background processing can continue without affecting the application. To use BG Stress Mode, an environment that connects to the Internet is required. This allows the development machine to connect to the Internet and run in BG Stress Mode for testing purposes.
If an application demonstrates unfavorable behaviors only when BG Stress Mode is enabled, contact your local Nintendo developer support group.

The Background Daemon setting determines whether to run a system daemon in the background. If you encounter an issue, use this setting to verify whether the system daemon affects the problem. If Background Daemon is disabled, the system daemon does not run and BG Stress Mode does not work even if it is enabled. Enable is the default setting.
