    Default systemd-coredum consumes 100% CPU

    Hi,

    I'm using the Gnome desktop. For the past few days my laptop CPU runs at almost 100%. top shows systemd-coredum is using it. I tried adding the lines
    Code:
    Storage=none
    ProcessSizeMax=0
    in /etc/systemd/coredump.conf but this change removes CPU usage but makes the system very very slow. Please suggest what to do.

    Thanks.

    Code:
    ls /var/lib/systemd/coredump
    That might tell you what program is dumping core.

    Hi,

    /var/lib/systemd/coredump has a bunch of entries like:
    core.single.1000.31e973209d514a2aab853be8566f73b6.5650.1554966591000000.xz core.tracker-extract.1000.31e973209d514a2aab853be8566f73b6.5077.1554966494000000.xz
    . Today itself about 5GB of data was written in /var/lib/systemd/coredump.

    I suppose tracker is a problem as some posts elsewhere in this forum indicate. But i use Gnome so i don't know if it is good to remove tracker.

    Hi,

    The problem seems to have disappeared. Possibly an update solved it.
