Description Dave Malcolm 2004-09-01 16:18:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
My CPU load was at 100%, but nothing significant was appearing in
"top".  Investigating further by typing "ps" twice in rapid sucesssion
reveals that about 100-150 PIDs were being used a second.

I managed to spot transitory threads of /usr/sbin/htt in a "ps ax" and
tried killing the parent /usr/bin/htt.  As soon as I did this my CPU
load went down to near zero, and the rapid increase of PID numbers has

So I believe that /usr/sbin/htt was rapidly forking then killing new
threads (which brought my system to its knees, CPU-wise)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the iimf-server package

Actual Results:  CPU load at 100% with no apparent cause

Expected Results:  This package shouldn't take up 100% CPU time, or
fork hundred of times a second.

Hi Dave,
This bug sounds very similar to bug 126647. Would you like to try the
latest rawhide 12.0.1.-1 (major release)? Please let me know if
problem still presists for you.

Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2004-09-02 04:36:58 EDT
Since this bug is for the development of FC and installed iiimf-server
is too old, this bug should be marked as DUPLICATED then. if you could
still reproduce this problem on even the latest package, please reopen
a bug.
