    Default systemd is consuming a LOT

    Hi,


    my notebook is behaving strange these days. As you can see in the image, the systemd-coredum is consuming A LOT o my CPU. Why? It was not like that.


    Sometimes the system freezes.

    What can I do?

    It looks to my rather (or very) limited knowledge you have a coredump being processed...

    What does, (as root)
    Code:
    coredumpctl list
    give you?

    Indeed.
    There seems to be a bug in that this also happens if coredumps are actually disabled via ulimit (as they are by default).
    And systemd-coredump doesn't even seem to respect the settings in /etc/systemd/ to limit/disable itself, in Leap at least...
    (this annoyed me a lot myself already)

    I found out how to disable systemd-coredump completely two days ago though, if somebody is interested:
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /dev/null /usr/lib/sysctl.d/50-coredump.conf
    Of course, in the end it's not systemd-coredump's fault if applications are crashing though...
    It's just a symptom, not the real problem.

    In fact, there are more bugs because the systemd-coredump returned. I don't know exactly why. I don't know if disable it is the best choice, but if I can't solve I will do it, because is consuming almost 100% of my CPU.

    As tannington already wrote, coredumpctl should show *which* applications crashed.
    And it should also allow to get more informations about the crashes.

    I used this tip to disable tracker-store processes. I couldn't find a way to solve the systemd problem.
