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.

I can confirm a spike in the verification process. As I already told Roger Kapsi, it would probably reduce a huge bottleneck if the verification of chunks while downloading would be verified in memory instead of writing to the disk, then verifying it. Verifying it in memory cuts the read/write process in half since you download it, verify it in memory then write it to disk instead of downloading it, writing it to disk, then verifying it. Make sense? This could also potentially speed up the downloading process as a whole. I just know that its killing my disk with amount of read/writes its doing.

Or maybe a hyrbrid combination if the user doesn't have enough RAM?

I didn't get around to trying 4.10.7, but just trying 4.10.8 now. I notice my pre-4.9 incompletes refused to load. lol Anyway more to today's issues, I've been finding some odd behaviour. Tiger 10.4.4 with Java 1.5; Audio downlds are seeming to freeze LW during verification (just small files) but the downld & importation into iTunes still continues. I was surprised to see my search & verfication freeze (at 90%) but then iTunes open & import. Similar for the next file. A total freeze of LW except for prefs. 3rd downld the same, froze at 93% verification but iTunes still imported it. The freeze seems to last for a reasonable time after iTunes has imported it. There doesn't appear to be any jump in VM or ram during that time but cpu does jump up.
Making sure we understand correctly a during the verification process the entire LW application freezes, but an import into iTunes succeeds, and eventually LW recovers from the freeze? If so, does this happen only with audio files of certain size? Does it also happen with video files (those should be shared with iTunes), and any other type of file?

What exactly do you mean by "A total freeze of LW except for prefs." Are you able to open and use the LW preferences? Do they get saved properly if modified?

Could you please try to compare whether the cpu and disk activity of 4.10.5 during the verification phase with that of .6, .7 or .8. Also, if you could get a stack trace during the freeze it would help us a ton.

The same issues haven't been evident. So despite using the console to make reports, there's nothing to report. I wonder if it was initial taking over of older version preferences. So I haven't had the same problems reported earlier. No freezing for verification or canceling downlds.

Videos appear in iTunes playlist if that's what you wanted to know. Are you intending to leave as an option in the LW preferences for potential future auto-importing of videos to iTunes on OSX?

After 12 hrs of leaving LW static (but uplding), VM was around 750 MB & after 4 hrs of searching & downlding it finished at just over 900 MB. Closing off windows, searches & console reduced it by perhaps 8 MB.

Edit: I will add though that LW just crashed whilst running in the background. It hasn't done that since I updated to Java 1.5 a couple of weeks ago.

Default 4.10.9 released

Beta 4.10.9 is out. It reverts some of the changes that went into the last three betas and should use less cpu and cause less disk activity. Unfortunately, LAN transfers may be slower. Please give it a try and let us know how it goes.

Best,
LW dev team

Nothing special to report, other than after about 18 hours of use, all of a sudden both RAM & VM are suddenly on the increase whilst LW is not downlding (is uplding.) Have downlded large files over this time. Have 6 search tabs still up. I did a search just 5 mins before the 1st snapshot image below.

There's 3 mins between no. #1 & 2, 10 mins between no. 5 & 6, 22 mins between 1 & 6. It seems LW or Java has reached that point it just collapses in handling LW. Using Java 1.5, OS 10.4.4, LW 4.10.9
At this moment, 10 mins after the last snapshot, the ram is 348 MB, VM=2.04 GB, & 2,181 threads.

I can presume that LW will crash within the next half an hr. I presume this is OSX Java right & not LW's fault.

I decided to open the console before it crashed & save a report covering a few mins. Do you want to see any of it & if so, how much of it?

LW is now extremely sluggish, getting spinning beach ball trying to change view mode or other things for eg.

At present:
Threads=2,364 (increasing sharply!)
RAM=538 MB
VM=2.14 GB

Edit: I just got a couple of internal errors. Lost connection ... error of Potential dud connection in console report.
Ram=525
T=2,451
VM=2.18

Doesn't seem to be able to reconnect! Trying for several mins.

I gave up, LW refused to reconnect. It had used 2.20 GB VM.
I noticed there were around 1,500 listed as Upload capacity reached in my monitor window & the usual queued & uplder at 0. lol Was able to reconnect after re-opening.

So I guess LW reaches a point of no return re: Java on OSX.

BTW whatever happened to the days of files continuing on their own (find their own sources after LW starts)?

Memory doesn't surprise me, but 2000 threads???! Never seen that so far.

CPU% is much better with 4.10.9

I downloaded a couple of 600+MB files and I get like 80MB RAM and 490MB of VM between 28 and 80 threads, CPU usage is between 4-9% on 1.2Ghz iBook, Osx 10.4.5 java 1.5.0-5 with LW 4.10.9 as a leaf.

Very good so far, no easy bug or whatsoever to bitch about....

In fact I like 4.10.9, IMO downloads and uploads should be NIO to decrease, but...

Ciao

Uploads & downoads (downloads first, probably) will be using NIO eventually.
