Description Fei Fei 2005-04-01 05:47:00 UTC
Description of problem:
The gdm-binary process comsumes 70% CPU after changing tls->tls.disable. When
TLS is enabled again, gdm-binary acts normally.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.choose grub ento xen VMM and Domain0
2.#mv /lib/tls /lib/tls.disable; reboot
4.#mv /lib/tls.disable /lib/tls; reboot
Actual results:
gdm-binary process consumes 70%+ CPU when tls is disabled.

Expected results:
gdm-binary will get < 10% CPU

Comment 1 Rik van Riel 2005-04-01 05:53:10 UTC
Firstly, there is no need to move /lib/tls out of the way - TLS emulation can be
slow at times, but it does work correctly now that Xen uses segment flipping.

Secondly, could you take a look where the CPU time is being spent?

Is it spent in user space, or in kernel space?  If the latter, could you boot
with 'profile=2' and use readprofile to figure out where the cpu time is being
spent ?

Comment 3 Fei Fei 2005-04-01 06:39:50 UTC
The output of "top" shows 79% in sys and 20% in user.
The output of readprofile with "profile=2" is attached.

Comment 4 Fei Fei 2005-04-04 09:57:52 UTC
From statement of bug #151367, it seems it's a common bug but not a xen specific
one. I updated the latest gdm package it's ok now.
