nscd consumes cpu
Last modified: 2016-11-24 07:07:18 EST
Description of problem:
nscd occasionally starts to consume all CPU resources.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
After attaching to the loose process, it seems that it's stuck here:
#0 0x0000000001088898 in epoll_wait () from /lib64/libc.so.6
#1 0x00007f09dd922132 in main_loop_epoll (efd=16) at connections.c:1786
#2 0x00007f09dd922721 in start_threads () at connections.c:1961
#3 0x00007f09dd91fc8d in main (argc=-567093952, argv=<value optimized out>) at nscd.c:279
2.8-3 is not the latest F9 glibc (2.8-8 is and had a bunch of nscd fixes).
Please test the latter.
Using 2.8-8 for about a month now and I didn't see this behaviour. Please close this bug report. I will reopen if I run into it again. Thanks.
Fixed in current rawhide release.
