Everything CPU is super high, debugging output:

Post by Coldblackice » Fri Mar 10, 2017 6:43 pm

Everything is frequently using 60-80% of CPU. When looking at the debugging output, I see hundreds of entries saying "removed 0 subfolders and 0 files from" and then some sort of GUID. Like here:

I have no idea where these GUID's are coming from. I thought maybe they were inside some temp folder that was frequently being changed, but apparently not. I searched the registry, but nothing. Is it some sort of internal ID that identifies a folder in Everything's database?

How can I stop this from happening? I have one NTFS drive that I allow Everything to monitor constantly, and then there are a few network shares that I've added as folders -- however -- they aren't monitored for changes, and are set to update at late hours of the night.

Any ideas?

Your link doesn't work.
Also you provideed no info about your config.
Which version of Everything for example

I think it might be using a referrer check or something like that, so you might need to copy/paste the link, or maybe try with a Private window.

Thanks for the screenshot.

Updating deleted and renamed folders is expensive in Everything.

Improving performance is on my TODO list, however it will come at the cost of additional memory usage.

This is unlikely to change in Everything 1.4 as it requires a large database rewrite.

For now, please try reducing the number of threads Everything uses:
  • Completely exit Everything (Right click the Everything system tray icon and click Exit).
  • Open your %APPDATA%\Everything\Everything.ini
  • Change the following line:
    max_threads=0
    to:
    max_threads=x
    where x is the number of logical CPUs you have minus 1.
  • Save changes and restart Everything.
  • This will make updating take a little longer, but will leave a thread free for other tasks.

I've reduced the CPU demand when deleting and renaming folders in Everything 852b or later.

Thanks void/everyone. Apologies on the link + missing info. I've been having this problem on 809b, but recently moved to 851b, hoping it'd fix the issue, however, the issue still persists. What's actually happening with all of these debug entries? Void, what do these thread stack-walks show is happening?

Thanks for the offset info.

What version of Everything are these from? x86 or x64?

Any idea what is program might be deleting all those folders?

It's 847b x64.

How can you see that folders are being deleted? I see it saying "0" subfolders/files being removed. Also, what are these things? I've tried searching for the identifiers/names listed but can't find anything. How do I trace where these are so I can see what's being deleted + what's deleting them?

EDIT:

Here is thread stackwalk data from 852b x64:

Re: Everything CPU is super high, debugging output:

Post by void » Wed Mar 15, 2017 11:28 pm

I was wondering why the offsets didnt match up to 851 or 809.

Symbols for 847b x64:
Everything.exe+0xd3be3 os_thread_wait_and_close (0xd3bd0 + 0x13)
Everything.exe+0x3febb _db_remove_subfolders_and_files (0x3fb30 + 0x38B)
Everything.exe+0x4118f _db_folder_ntfs_remove (0x410F0+ 0x9F)
Everything.exe+0x46fbb _db_monitor_ntfs_process_usn_records2 (0x46EF0 + 0xCB)
Everything.exe+0x19802 _db_load_local_thread_proc (0x194F0 + 0x312)
Everything.exe+0xdb0c1 _os_thread_proc (0xdb060 + 0x61)

The high CPU is most likely caused by many folder deletions.
How can you see that folders are being deleted? I see it saying "0" subfolders/files being removed.
removed 0 subfolders and 0 files from <folder name> in 0.020363 seconds in the debug log means a folder was deleted.
Where folder name is the deleted folder.

To find where the folder was deleted from:
  • Make a note of the <folder name> from the debug log above.
  • Terminate Everything without saving the database to disk:
  • Press Ctrl + Shift + ESC to open the Task Manager
  • Click the Details tab (or Processes tab)
  • Click Everything and click End Process. (If multiple Everything.exe processes, click the one using the most ram)
  • Click End Process.
  • From a command prompt (Win + R -> enter in: cmd )
  • Navigate to your Everything folder (cd c:\program files\Everything)
  • Run Everything with the read-only command line option:
    Everything.exe -read-only
  • Search for the <folder name> from above.
  • Try to determine what application the folder belongs to from the path.
  • Exit Everything.
  • Restart Everything normally.

Re: Everything CPU is super high, debugging output:

Aha! I opened ProcessMonitor to see what was happening behind the scenes. Sure enough, I found SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) massively interacting with the disk, writing/deleting lots of session data, and frequently. This is what was choking Everything!

You were right, void. I was just confused how the debug data meant folders were getting deleted -- the "0" is what confused me. I would think it'd say a positive non-zero number, like "5 folders removed" or similar. Anyway, no big deal. Now I know for future reference.

The reason I couldn't find these folders by searching was because the session data id's are changing rapidly and getting deleted/renewed on disk. I just set Everything to exclude this folder, and the debug output is a lot more manageable now: no more endless debug scrolling. However, there's a lot of red output now with "unable to add ntfs file:..." I'm guessing this is because Everything isn't complying with the USN journal for these exclusions because of the exclude-folder directive.

Anyway, is this the solution you'd recommend: excluding that session data folder from Everything? Will this affect performance in any way? I suppose I should perhaps address the root of the problem: preventing SSMS from writing so much/often to disk, or at least trying to limit it. Perhaps SSMS's frequent writes may be affecting the system in other ways, too?

PS - Apologies on the wrong version offsets. I've gone through multiple versions in a few days and lost track of which was which.

EDIT: Thanks for the suggestion on how to find the folder. I didn't see your post until after I had used ProcessMonitor, but your idea would've been faster + more precise. I'll try it now for experience's sake. Thanks void.
