Description A. Bitz 2005-04-22 05:13:00 UTC
Using Server with Suse 9.2 and samba-3.0.14-0.1 (rpm).

Sometimes (once a day or so) one of my smbd-processes owned by root causes high
load using all of the CPU it gets.

Killing the process is possible, samba keeps running without problems.

Are you running 3.0.14 or 3.0.14a?  Set bug report version is 14a while you
mentioned 14 as package version.

You might use smbstatus to check which user is connected to the high load
causing process.  Is it always the same user or client?

You might even attach strace to the process which might allow us to isolate any
infinite loop.

I'm using 3.0.14, but that version is not in the list, so I choose 3.0.14a.

I will do this as soon as the problem occurs again.

Please update to the 3.0.14a bug fix release.  The same packages are available at

ftp://ftp.SuSE.com/pub/projects/samba/ and
http://download.Samba.org/samba/ftp/Binary_Packages/SuSE/

Even if we added the 14a fix to our 3.0.14 packages asap you can't be sure to
have the right, fixed version running.

Please reopen the bug with the information attached requested in comment #1.
