#746 closed defect (out of date)

100% CPU usage while file transfer in progress (yahoo)

Reported by: andrixnet Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: Yahoo!/Yahoo! JAPAN
Version: 2.0 Keywords:


The subject says pretty much everything.

I got slugish system response while transfering a large file (4M) through Yahoo account. Transfer rate was about 30k/s. I popup up the CPU window and got >99% usage by pidgin.

I reported the same when using IRC on the tracker a long time ago. I was doing local transfers between two clients and a server, all running on the same host. One client was X-Chat and it was preforming nicely, but Gaim was taking all CPU.

I haven't ever been able to recreate this.

Since Yahoo transfer mostly doesn't work, I haven't tried it again recently.

When I'll get some new info, I'll get back. Need to find a buddy with which file transfer works at least in one of the directions...

There have been a lot of changes in the yahoo! prpl, especially in Pidgin 2.6.0. If you're still experiencing this issue with it when it's released, please comment here and we'll re-open the ticket (or file a new one).

Just tested a few file transfer between Pidgin and yahoo client 8 and 9. Several megs each file, CPU usage for pidgin below 30% (well, below 10% most of the time).

Tried at transfer rates between 50k and 2000k.

Leaving as closed. Thank you.
