Attached file is using 100% cpu on 64 bit Jaunty.
Steps to reproduce.
1) Open attached pdf in adobe reader.
2) There wont be cpu usage initially.
3) Wait for 5 min to see the surge in cpu usage.
Linux hercules-linux 2.6.28-14-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jul 8 07:41:18 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Acrobat reader info:
*** 9.1.2-3jaunty1 0
Not sure whether this is the same problem or a different one.
For us acroread consumes all the memory and the CPU is maxed out swapping
until the oom manager kills acroread and the machine recov
Our machines are 2GB RAM with 2GB swap, running the x86_64 version of
Scientific Linux 5.3 (a recompilation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3)
- we don't really need a 64bit OS but some local apps run faster in 64 bit.
We first saw this with, I think, acroread 8.1.4 and continues through to 8.1.6.
(I am reluctant to switch to v9 since we are using it as a pdf viewer
more likely to move to evince or another open source pdf viewer).
Typically acroread chews memory for users who run firefox 32bit
and the nppdf.so Adobe plugin, but I cannot confirm that it never
happens for users whose firefox opens a separate acroread process.
What extra imformation would help to debug this ?
The nppdf.so shared library that is provided in the download for linux is an ELF32 object, so is completely unusable with 64-bit browsers.
If you can make a 64-bit build available, I would be happy to try it out and report back on how well it performs.
Looks like that some people that might be able to help are subcribed to this thread.
It would be nice if you can take a look to the problem that I´ve reported in this post:
I´m glad to provide additional information there if required to not spam this thread with my problem.
Your help is very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
