beagle helper hangs @ 100% cpu
Last modified: 2008-05-06 12:18:04 EDT
Description of problem:
sometimes the beagle-helper process eats 100% cpu until I kill it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
n/a just happens sometime
hang @ 100% cpu load
no hang @ 100% cpu
5122 dragoran 15 0 162m 36m 11m S 100 1.8 8:40.66 beagled-helper
strace -p 5122
Process 5122 attached - interrupt to quit
this is a FC5 x86_64 system with a dual core cpu running on
Very strange, the strace shows it stuck in poll, which should use 0% cpu. Maybe
there are more threads and one of the other treads is stuck? Can you check with
the thread switches in ps?

ok will try to do this when it happens again.
it hangs again in poll() but does not use 100% cpu load.

it tryes to index a .ods file (thats whats beagle-status says)
I can reproduce the "hang when trying to index a .ods file"
when I save a .ods file beagle tryes to index it and hangs.
What is an .ods file. Can you attach it?
(In reply to comment #6)
> What is an .ods file. Can you attach it?
its a openoffice (2.0+) spreadshead
just create one with some text in it.
This happens with *any* ods file? Can you try running "beagle-extract-content"
on one and see if the CPU is also a problem there?
Created attachment 136023 [details]
"broken" ods file
beagle-extract-content does not show any errors and does not hang. can't look
at the cpu usage because it was too fast.
but beagle is unable to index this file (can't find it when I search for the
name or contents)
file is attached.
I downloaded the file, renamed it "test.ods" and then searched for e.g. test,
nvidia and peluga. They all return the file both with the rawhide beagle and
with beagle-0.2.6-1.fc5.1 from FC5.
Does beagle-index-info say its indexing or not? maybe the indexing just isn't
done yet? (There is a bug about indexing being slow)
When i run beagle-extract-content on that file i get this:

ok I will delete .beagle and recreate the index (in "fast mode") and tell you if
it works. but now I have work to do sorry (will do it tomorrow)
sorry for the delay
I recreated the whole index and now can find the file.
seems like that the indexing is broken...
I wonder if it has anything to do with this bug:
