Currently the windows client (recent versions from 2017) are constantly eating up explorer memory and CPU. After several hours I can see an explorer.exe with 5 Gig memory and a constant 60% CPU time.
This has been tested on 3 Windows 10 clients so far and they all show the same behaviour. While writing this post the explorer.exe memory raised from 600 MB to 1.200 MB .
Also there’s a busy cursor every second when hovering over any explorer window.
When closing the seafile client everything giles back to normal. (Although I have to restart the explorer to reset its memory)
Also this bevahiour is independend of the option to show the seaefile explorer icon overlays.
So I’m guessing this MUST have been noticed by other users than me now.
Well first of all, I don’t use a linux client, but a windows client. But other than that? What is the post referring to? Do we talk about the librariy clones on a PC or the original libraries on the seafile server itself?
The problem has not changed so far. Still seafile is permanently stealing the cursor focus while syncing.
Which means that when I create a new folder somewhere then as soon as I try to rename it the cursor focus prevents me from overwriting the old name. Also the mouse cursor is showing the waitstate cursor - every second - like blinking. And the explorer.exe is accumulatiing memory - usually 4 or 6 GB - until I close the process and restart explorer.exe, in which case everything is starting all over again.
In ESET the process names and the Seafile folder is excluded from scanning. Anyway even if I completely disable the AV - then the system shows the same problems.
