Very high systemload when I use azureus 2.2.0.0 on SuSe 9.2


Hi!

I've been using linux for about a week so im pretty clueless in general. When I download files with azureus (2.2.0.0 GTK verison from sourceforge) on SuSe 9.2 something weird happens. The programs starts without errors and everything works fine until I start downloading something. My CPU maxes out and my disc is working at top speed. Sounds like when you defragment a drive in windows

Right now, when azureus has run for about 5 minutes it looks like this:
MemoryUsage:
azarues uses: 3,7 Mb VM and 1,3 Mb Physical.
java uses: 397 Mb VM and 116 Mb Physical.
CPU is 100% (according to systemmonitor).
The computer feels sluggish as well.

2 downloads are running with total 330 kb/s download and 65 kb/s upload.

Azureus doesn't hang but it's sluggish and takes about a minute to shut down.

Im using:
Azureus 2.2.0.0
java version "1.4.2_05"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_05-b04)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_05-b04, mixed mode)

Any ideas anyone?

Azureus, and BitTorrent in and of itself, are very resource intensive. Especially given the constant tx/rx of packets, also the hashing of those data bits to prohibit bad downloads. This, I fear, is not to be worked around, except with perhaps a lighter (read less bloated) client.

Hi.

But is 100% CPU and about 500 Mb of memory really normal? I've only used bittorent on ms-machines until now and have never experienced this high load (azureus 2.2.0.0 uses about 50 Mb memory on XP, same machine). Everything else runs small and neat in linux so I'm quiet surprised at this. If anybody uses azureus 2.2.0.0 and doesn't experience this, I would be intresseted to know.

One more thing:
I'm using Konqueror 3.3.0 as graphical filemanager. The filelisting doesn't update the content of my folders automatically, like if something finishes downloading and I open konqueror to view it, I'll have to update manually hitting F5 tom see my new files. Is it possible to turn on automatic refresh of the viewport? Can't find anything in menu "settings/configure Konqueror".
