[Bug 249638] New: update-status and auditd compute-bound
  • From: bugzilla_noreply@xxxxxxxxxx

  • Message-id: <bug-249638-21960@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/>

Summary: update-status and auditd compute-bound
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Final
Platform: x86
OS/Version: SuSE Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: libzypp
AssignedTo: kkaempf@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: crispin@xxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: kkaempf@xxxxxxxxxx
CC: visnov@xxxxxxxxxx, seth.arnold@xxxxxxxxxx

Several days ago, ZMD/libzypp became problematic because it told me of patches
available for ClamAV, but then failed to update them. I found no way to clear
the "orange !" display on my desktop because I couldn't actually update them.

Yesterday, after boot, the update-status daemon ran for 5 minutes of hard
compute-bound work with a lot of disk IO, even though there was no network
connection available (I was on a train).

Today, update-status and auditd seem to run out of control, constantly
compute-bound and doing lots of disk I/O. Worse, auditd appears to not be
working, as I can't get audit messages from AppArmor to make it through to
/var/log/audit/audit.log any more (this used to work).

My computer has become unusable; it overheats, and sucks battery power at an
absurd rate. I am therefore going to follow the instructions here and remove zmd, in the hopes that
I can get auditd to work again.

NOTE: This is classified as "SuSE Other" because I cannot find a classification
for openSUSE 10.2 :(
