when running my own project I sometimes get very weird spikes of high CPU-usage by consul. Restarting the
services usually fixes the problem.
Consul is at 0.0%-0.5% CPU usage for most of the time, but suddenly it spikes up to 13%-34% (which is more than one core).
I have no real clue when this happens. This happens irregardless of me actually submitting video data or not, however I do strongly believe the stress is caused by
gvencode.exe. Once I sent even a single frame consul and gvencode can go crazy, and remain that way, even if I stop submitting video data.
- Restarting services fixes the problem
gvencode.exeis the only other thread consuming major CPU (same range as consul), sometimes composed as well.
- killing gvencode either via the task-manager or the Cluster-UI stops counsul’s high CPU usage, this behaviour is not there for any other of the services (I tried).
I haven’t found a reliable way to trigger the high CPU usage, except “let it run, after 30 minutes it’s always there”.
I am not entirely sure what additional info I can provide. I’m fairly certain that I don’t do anything crazy but using the C#-SDK.
The problem occurs when submitting video-data as a
byte, and as a
I also noticed that the version of consul in the SDK is almost a year old now:
c:\Genvid\Genvid Technologies SDK 1.11.0\bin>consul.exe version Consul v0.7.5
However, I doubt that’s the problem, and I do understand how upgrading it might be a major undertaking.
