Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

In the menu! You don't need to open the options panel to generate a pseudo bug-report for display: Help->Generate error



This will open a "Internal error" alert that you can consult with the second button.



The whole report is in the white scrollable area, which is selectable (you can copy from it).



Then click OK to close it, and finally "Reject" in the first screen to ignore the report (don't need to send it to LimeWire, as it's a faked error, but not a bug in the software).

The "Generate Error" menu option is only available in CVS versions of LimeWire. We don't want generated exceptions bogging down our bugserver.

You can view a similiar report in production versions by going to Tools -> Options, Bug Reports, and choosing 'View Example'.

I should have noticed it... Thanks for noting it is is absent from beta versions (I thought it was only missing in releases).
Well we could as well disable the "Send report" button. Of course the "View example" button in options pane will work as well.

However, when resuming a download or trying to use the scroll bar, several clicks may be required. Could the tooltip window be made 'transparent' for mouseclicks?
Transparency may not work on MacOS Classic, it is tricky to program due to display refreshes. If your display board does not support accelerated alpha transparency, this may take lots of CPU time.
Well I think that the simplest would be that a click on a tooltip forces it to close, so you can click behind it.

The upstream bandwidth currently only counts the actual TCP payload (ignoring automatic retransmissions in case of TCP errors detected), but not the TCP header or IP headers which are unpredictable due to buffering within the OS, and not even the PPP/LCP overhead on the internet link or the ATM encapsulation.

To get more accurate data, you need to estimate the overhead, or look into OS statistics (you won't get data below the IP level (i.e. PPP/LCP or ATM framing will not be visible on DSL/cable connections; on 56K modems, you can get the final bandwidth sent to the modem in the OS statistics, but even in that case your modem will apply its own protocol (data compression, error control, and framing bits).

The true bandwidth used is hard to determine (you can just take an estimate of about 5% of overhead for the underlying transport or link protocols).

Also the "spiky" bandwidth is typical in case of slow or far downloaders, that can't reply in sustained time. This spiky curve is smoothed when there are parallel transfers to distinct hosts.

Ok, I have restarted 3.6.12, it is now hogging CPU at >95%. Now I open the "sample error" message window. but unlike LW's error messages there is no cptoin for copying the text , unless there is some undocumented keyboard combination (Ctrl-Ins doesn't seem to work). I hope you aren't expecting me to type the text line-by-line into my browser

OK, Use Ctrl+C to copy the selected text...

This gives me a suggestion for the GUI: add tabbed panes in the About box, with one listing this configuration (without the unneeded error trace). And add a Copy button in the bug report view.

Another suggestion: couldn't we display the startup tips in the empty search result window, beside the promotional HTML panel?
This would allowing closing permanently this tip window that I find irritating, but it would be visible enough to inform users.

Ok, to start with, I deleted all the files in .limeware except createtimes.cache and
fileurns.cache (it takes ages to regenerate these). This cleared up the above-mentioned startup problems (<strike>except for some reason that LW is reconnecting as leaf rather than UP, even though the latter is enabled</strike>it is now running as UP). Now, I startup, and within 60 secs, LW starts grabbing >99% CPU.

I have a 2048/1024 ASDL connection and am sharing ~4,5k files

It seems you are alone to test LimeWire on OS/2. It seems to be an issue with the virtual memory management (with committed memory) on OS/2, and difficulties to handle multiple threads efficiently on this platform, and to support CPU throttling:

I note that you share a lot of files, but you have erased your THEX data cache. This is still a new feature in LimeWire, ant i will take time until all your files are indexed.

What seems to happen is that this occurs the first time a user starts downloading from you with THEX control. THEX tree data is not computed immediaely when you add files in the library. Instead it is computed in parallel with uploads.

I made special efforts to maximize the throughput and efficiency of the THEX hasher (which is running on is own thread on your host), so that it won't take lot of time to compute. However, throttling of this hasher by concurrent threads seems to be ineffective on OS/2. As there's nobody at LimeWire or in our open-sourcers that has worked to see what's happening on your platform, there's littel we can do to help you.

One suggestion:
Exit limewire, save your limewire.props file and the thex and urn cache files as well as the file stats cache.
Then restart with much lower number of shared files (for example reset the configuration to share the default share directory).
Restart and share only a few popular (but not too large) files, and see what is happening. You'll see a CPU spike when the first file will be uploaded, when this file gets THEX-hashed.
It should return to normal just after.
If you see that, then it just happens because your thex cache file was emptied.
You may then restore your saved settings. No immediate solution for you on OS/2 until all your popular files get THEX-hashed on demand. I recommand you check your system settings related to virtual memory management (if you don't have a permanent and unfragmented swap space, you could experiment long delays o perform efficient multithreading).


On Windows, my UltraPeer (using an Athlon XP 1800+) handles more than 450 concurrent threads with 5 to 10% of CPU usage...
