Description Jean-Marc Valin 2004-05-27 22:04:26 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm having problems with fam on my machine (Fedora Core 2). When
running one of my programs and redirecting stdout to a file, fam ends
up eating all the CPU. During a normal run, my program takes 10
seconds of CPU while sneding 6.7 MB of data to stdout (which ends up
in a file). In the meantime, fam ended up using 2 minutes(!!) of CPU:
12x more than the program it's monitoring. The file I'm writing is on
a local filesystem and I have no filemanager open. Also, I've been
able to see that if I remove the prints, fam no longer eats CPU. This
has been confirmed by someone on the FAM list.
