Ever since I upgraded to 0.6.2, all of my CPUs have been pinned at 100% usage.  Anyone else having similar problems?

Here is a 11 year old Athlon XP 1800+ running 0.6.0:

Quote
root@inana:~# ps waxuf | grep bitcoin
bitcoind 27316  0.5 20.5 200604 102428 ?       SLsl 05:16   0:35 /usr/local/bin/bitcoind -conf=/etc/bitcoin/bitcoin.conf -pid=/etc/bitcoin/pid -daemon -datadir=/etc/bitcoin/ -noirc

And a modern Celeron G440 running 0.6.2:

Quote
root@linuxcoin:/opt/logs# ps waxuf | grep bitcoind
root     27863  0.0  0.0   7740   836 pts/6    S+   11:59   0:00                          \_ grep bitcoind
root      3566 60.0  1.3 222240 106664 ?       SLsl 01:44 369:33 /usr/bin/bitcoind -conf=/etc/bitcoin.conf -pid=/var/run/bitcoind.pid -daemon -datadir=/opt/bitram/
root      3567  0.0  0.0   3924   324 ?        Ss   01:44   0:00 startpar -f -- bitcoind

Before the upgrade, the Celerons were quite snappy and responsive.  Now, it can take several minutes (really!) to run a simple bitcoind getinfo.  And it isn't an I/O problem, the Celerons are totally diskless, running entirely out of RAM, like they have been for the last few months.

I feel same thing on my 3 core Athlon. Windows 7/64bit. Bitcoin-qt and bicoind is eating one full core for 3-5 seconds every 10-15 seconds. At same time disk usage is spiking to max transfer.
On image upper row is CPU, it is spiking to 33% (one core). Lower one is disk usage, spikes are over 40MB/s (my max data rate).

At least for Bitcoin-Qt some internals were re-worked to lower CPU usage with 0.7, mainly while downloading the block-chain. I have no idea for bitcoind though.

Bitcoind 0.6.2 Win7 x32 with affinity set to cpu3:
The first 1/3 of the cpu graphs is catching up with blocks, the rest is sitting idle.



Core2 Quad @ 2.4GHz = no such issues

Keep in mind these days there is a bit of work to do when you get a new block, looking up and reindexing balances when it has 1000 dicespam transactions in it.

But we NOT have block each 10-15 sec, right? And usage is spiking about every 10-15 sec, not 10mins like blocks...

The 0.7 release will include an optimization that should help a lot (transaction signature cache -- prior releases checked signatures when the transaction was first seen, and then checked again when a new block was received, it makes processing new blocks much faster).

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

kjj, run this to sample what bitcoind is doing:

Quote
$ gdb -ex "set pagination 0" -ex "thread apply all bt" --batch -p $(pidof bitcoind)

Quite useful as a quick way to profile a running process...

You receive transactions at that rate.
