Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9769
pump stealing cycles
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
I am running RH 6.1 on a Toshiba Tecra 520CDT (notebook) using a 3c574
10/100 pcmcia card. After installation, I configured the networking (via
netconfig) to use a DHCP server on our NT network.
After pump gets an IP address, the system becomes rather sluggish.
running top I can see that pump is using between 72.9 and 93.0% of the cpu
cycles. Trying to reboot causes the machine to hang when trying to
shutdown the eth0 interface.
Upgrading to the Rawhide version (0.7.6-1) seems to help, but using the
version that ships on CD doesn't work.
Doing a /sbin/pump -i eth0 --status also shows that the renewal/expiration
date to be 01/01/70. Is this intentional?
Please try the pump available from ftp://people.redhat.com/ewt/pump-0.7.8 It
fixes numerous bugs.
Please reopen this bug if you continue to have problems.
