Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212379
gnome-vfs-deamon uses excessive cpu on network shre
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
Copying files from FC6 to Windows share is extra slow (about 6% of the 100 Mib
band width used.
gnome-vfs-deamon is using >60% of the cpu,
naulilas is using 30%.
A 3.3 GB file takes 1 hour and 40 minue.
That is on about the speend of an old disk drive comtroller on a 386.
This has been going on for some time but I only saw the gnome-vfs-daemon in top
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-vfs-deamon does not have a packaage name?
evry copy across net to windows share.
Steps to Reproduce:
extremely long file transfer times
65-80% of network bandwidth used at a fraction og the cpu being used.

This is quite possibly fixed by the gnome-vfs2-2.16.2-1.fc6 update. (There is a
100% cpu use bugfix in that.)
Can you verify?
I've got the same problem ...
I set up my home network and it is 100Mb/s (100Mb/s linksys router, 1x 1000Mb/s
XP SP2, 2x 100Mb/s XP SP2, 1x 100Mb/s FC6)
Network Performance is terrible on FC6: only about 1.7MB/s with 100% CPU IF i
use Nautilius to copy to / from other computers
HOWEVER, say if i use an XP computer and copy a file to or from other XP
computers or my FC6 computer, I'll get 10MB/s and around 5% CPU
I generally only yum update on mondays, so I'll be back if the problem continues.
hopefully everything will be fixed soon or is already fixed with latest release
NOT FIXED with latest updates
CPU usage is till excessive (not 80%)
and network utilization is now 1.8 MB/s
again this should be 5% and 10MB/s as I get in Windows XP SP2
oops a few typos above ...
CPU usage is no longer 100%, it is now 80% for me which is still way too much
