Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 974857
tload freezes and goes to 100% CPU
Last modified: 2016-01-31 20:58:37 EST
Description of problem:
If I leave tload running, when the server load is high, tload freezes. htop shows tload using 100% cpu.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
leave tload running for a while on a server that sometimes experiences a load > 1.
Steps to Reproduce:
Server crashes due to the sustained high load
Monitor not create server load
I'd like to ask you to do the following steps in order to collect some debug info ...
1.) Install the debuginfo package
2.) Run tload in the gdb debugger
gdb tload -batch -ex run -ex bt
3.) Wait till the issue appears
4.) Interrupt the gdb session with CTRL+C
5.) Copy the GDB output to a text file (starting with "Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.") and attach the file to this bug report.
If the GDB output is shorter than 10 lines, then copy'n'paste it directly as a comment and forget about the text file.
Thanks in advance.
Any news here? Have you tried to collect the debug info?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
