#80 closed bug (fixed)

Terminal hangs on large console output

Description

If a commandline app that outputs a lot of text is launched from the Terminal, the Terminal itself hangs, hogging most of the CPU. Killing the Terminal doesn't seem to work, the system is just slow as hell due to the CPU hog. You can reproduce the problem by launching listsem or listarea for example. The problem doesn't exist if these apps are launched from the fake_app_server/consoled combo.

I can't reproduce this anymore, maybe it's been fixed ?

comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by diver

The bug is still there in rev16300. Testcase: listsem.

comment:3 Changed 13 years ago by bpmagic@…

It works for me as of hrev16344. I built the thing under R5 and both listsem and listarea work OK. I even did a cat output of a 1.8MB text file and while it did hit the CPU pretty good, it didn't max it out and everything seemed to work fine. Anyone else reporting issues?

If no one else reports this bug, I'll close it, due to mixed responses.

I can no longer reproduce this with testcase "listarea" (it completes fine, whereas in some earlier build than 16823 it did not), but I can reproduce 100% CPU usage if I press a key during listarea's execution. Can anyone confirm? If so, I'll write out a seperate report for this.

(In reply to comment #4)

If no one else reports this bug, I'll close it, due to mixed responses.

I still can reproduce it by typing in terminal: cd \ find after 3-4 second Terminal will hang. listarea will also hang Terminal if you scroll while listarea writes to stdout. Tested with rev16877 under vmware.

comment:12 Changed 13 years ago by marcusoverhagen

Terminal easily hangs when trying to cat a large textfile, for example /var/log/syslog after a couple of system starts.

Window content isn't redrawn anymore, and CPU usage is very high.

at revision 16886 now.

This bug is still standing in rev. 17447

It also makes debugging applications in haiku very hard.

For example, MediaPlayer when launched from Terminal, will print very much debug output in case an ogm file is loaded.

After a brief moment, MediaPlayer will freeze, as will all other Terminals that are open. Immediatelly, the whole system gets very unresponsive. Using "unreal" in KDL helps a little, at least Deskbar can be used again to shutdown the system.

Entering KLD shows that MediaPlayer is stuck in tty_write_to_tty:
