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.

Unhappy High CPU use and hang up

I've been using Shareaza for the last two days. IMHO it's probably the best Gnutella peer available, and probably the most advanced .

But I am having a problem, after a few hours running, it starts to use more and more CPU resources, until it gets always above 90% CPU use and then it stops responding . I found no reason for that behavior, and after 10 or 20 minutes it's still the same. I can only close it (I use Win2K SP2). Does anyone else has this problem? It's very annoying. I guess that some process runs into a deadlock, and kills it all. I've also seen that sometimes there's a peak of CPU use and any upload running may breake. I am connecting to 5 ultrapeers. The computer only runs Shareaza, no other program was running except Kerio Personal Firewall (2.1.4).

Also I have seen partially closed sockets, in the firewall I can see the port 6346 open listening, and a few more 6346 sockets closed but not released.

I would like to make a suggestion also to improve Shareaza (and it's difficult to improve even more!): Ability to search and download a file when found (what LimeWire calls "Add to whishlist"). Also, something that allows automatical responses to chat requests (busy message, taking care not to respond automatically another automatic message!) .

Hi, igalan...

No, you are not alone...I have been having the same problem since the start of the v1.5.x.x series and I am using the same OS...

But, good news for you and others... I think
I am just completing the fourth hour of testing a change to the executable and all seems to be ok for now.

One thing that you can do before what I assume will be called v1.5.3.0 is released...
Mike has changed the default for Max Hits in the Advanced settings page... Change it to Max Hits 64

This is NOT the fix, but it will help...
There was supposed to be a further release but because of the problems that you and others (AND me !) have been having, that release is delayed, slightly...

As I say, this latest fix seems to be doing the job... The problem is apparently related to 'some' hosts not being exactly 'kosher'... sorry...

Keep your eyes open and look for the new release VERY soon... Hopefully today.

btw, I assume that you are sharing a relatively large number of files.

p.s. As you are probably aware... four hours is not long enough to be truly confident that this problem is beaten, but this is the fifth progressive development fix I have had to try re: this problem and for the first time I am feeling fairly confident...
Must be crazy, hmmm ? LOL

Wow! This is a quick response!

I am sharing over 170 files / 7 GB (most of the files are over 70 MB). I don't know if this is relatively large number of files shared or not, it depends . Many of this files are highly requested.

I look forward the new release of Shareaza, meanwhile I'll try with the Max Hits setting. I'll tell you if it works. Thanks!

Default number of files shared / CPU usage

I had this exact same problem... I reduced the number of files I share from 8 GB to whatever's in the download folder. The problem you reffer to went away and my download speeds rose quite a bit.

Don't bump an old topic; this is a completely different problem. In 1.5 there might have been a glitch that did this, but in 1.8 Shareaza hashes each file three times (because people on the Shareaza forums wanted EDonkey support -_-;) and thus uses a lot of CPU time hashing each individual file in your 8GB shares.
