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.

Lightbulb Yes Works Great - Only->

I notice it hogs every free CPU cycle it can - even if there is hardly anything to do ...
Like right now I disconnected and even in the background it still uses between 90 and 98 % of the CPU
I am using it in Win2000pro and Sun Java 1.4.0_01-b03
When in the foreground it uses 75 MB memory and in the background still about the same as IE6.0 ~35MB
But continuously the cycle hogging - right now there is just one upload going on, disconnected from the peers and a few download candidates still waiting for further hours...
Must be something in the tread management...

I noticed it because sometimes the machine seems to freeze for short time periods (then even the mouse doesn’t move...

I verified all aspects up and download except passive search...
I like the way the multiple searches have been implemented and how gcache made it connect relatively quickly even though my generic ports 6346... are completely blocked by my administrators...
Other thing I just noticed even though I was disconnected an incoming connection was still accepted - that should be adjustable, no?
And the CPU usage has more variance than above mentioned

Anyhow Felicidades Glückwünsche and all !

I would be very interested to know what is using up all the processor time inside Phex..... just some questions to try to find the problem.

How many files are you sharing? Are all files already hashed? Maybe they are hashed again on each restart (a bug)?
How many parallel downloads did you configure?
How many downloads do you have in your download list?

If you are a bit familiar with Windows, Can you start Phex with the Debug Link, wait a couple of minutes or an hour and send me a thread dump? You can create the thread dump by pressing CTRL-BREAK in the debug concole. You might need to enlarge the screen buffer to see the full dump. Just ask if you need help doing this.

Arrow Update

First getting into it the second time I got a n error messagre see attached aout urns in the download xml beeing null after I fixed that (by copying some other urns there) it started upo nice...

Now I watched the CPU use while rehashing (which it does apparently from scratch) and it only reaches 36 % leaving more than 60 idle percents...

I don't know what it was the other day apparently it does'nt do it all the time... I hav then been sharing about 18 GB and as I said all the downloads in my list were allready saying waiting for hours...
I post again if I see it happen again and notice why!

The error you describe is a bug. It is already fixed in the source you can get from the Phex CVS.
A new release will be made soon.

Hashing 18GB takes a long long time. You should maybe not share more then 2000 to 5000 files. This might create performance problems. It should not be a problem if you share less files. Just that it takes long to hash them.
Each file is only hashed once and the hash is stored. On next restart of Phex it should be available right away.
