Leaky Unity in Oneiric
I monitored the top 5 processes showing the worst cumulative CPU time on my main desktop running Oneiric (32bit):
I initially wanted to track dbus-daemon sometimes taking a full core at 100% for several minutes several times a day, but it didn’t happen in this interval.
unity-service-panel seems to be leaking too, but not much in comparison. I’ll keep an eye on it.
I tried the same thing on another desktop, x64 this time, the leak is even worse, ~150MB in 12hours, and 7% CPU (it’s a quad-core @2.66GHz)
(compiz 1:0.9.4+bzr20110606-0ubuntu6, unity 4.2.0-0ubuntu4)
EDIT: Just upgraded to compiz 1:0.9.5.0-0ubuntu1 / unity 4.2.0-0ubuntu5, *DON’T*, it’s far worse. It crashed after 2h, and repeatedly froze at 100% cpu inside libgl (nvidia).
