In answer to your questions - no, there isn't an Java-less version. It shouldn't be using that much CPU - if you submit a debug log from the Help menu, we might be able to diagnose it.

Don't the thread logs come up with the generated debug report?

Hi all,
I too am having this issue. Using Vuze 4.0.0.2. App runs fine with minimal CPU usage, then suddenly usage goes to 100%. I've tried pausing then restarting DLs, but at this point App runs very slow and seldom responds. After a certain time my PC actually hangs. Needless to say it's really frustrating.

Can someone tell me (in steps please) how to diagnose this issue.

Many thanks

First, you should upgrade to 4.0.0.4, as that was mainly bug fixes.

Secondly, after that 100% CPU utilization happens next time, you should generate a debug info report (from the Help menu), and then attach that generated debug.zip file to a message here. That should contain all the logs, which might enable others to diagnose the symptoms.

Thanks for ultra quick response.

I've updated my version to 4.0.0.4. and restarted Vuze and DLs. App runs fine for about 2 minutes then CPU jumps to 100% again.

I tried to generate the debug log while the CPU is at 100%. I waited abound 7 minutes for the task to complete but it never did. I had to end the Azureus.exe process in Task Manager because it was no longer responding.

I restarted Vuze, and generated the attached log.

I didn't see anything obvious there.

I noticed that you are running with wireless network. Hopefully your hardware can take the P2P burden.

You have checked, that it really is Vuze which consumes 100% of CPU according to windows task manager?
And not network drivers or firewall (of course caused by active Vuze, but not directly due to Vuze code)...

I have observed the same serious problem with Vuze 4.1.0.4. The symptoms of the problem are that Vuze initially uses about 3% of CPU capacity when a few torrents are running. After running for a while this goes up to the maximum possible (on my machine that is 100% of one core, or 50% of total CPU capacity).

I am running only Windows Vista firewall, and have a traditional ethernet connection to a cable modem.

I have attached a zipped debug file, for anyone who might be able to interpret this.

You are right, you seem to continuously run Vuze at 99-100% CPU utilization. :-(

There are some Vista permission related error messages like:
0403 21:56:38] DEBUG::Wed Mar 04 21:56:38 GMT 2009::org.gudy.azureus2.platform.win32.PlatformManagerImpl::getAdditionalFileTypeRegistrationDetails::664:

0403 21:56:38] stderr] at org.gudy.azureus2.platform.win32.access.impl.AEWin32AccessInterface.readStringValue(Native Method)

I don't see any clear reason in the logs. So I will not have any "sure" advice for you. Some advice based on idea that sonehow Vuze has not enough rights in Vista, and that locks it down to a loop somewhere.
You might:
1) clear the Vuze option to "check (file) associations on startup". At bottom of Interface options page.
2) give users more rights in your Vuze related directories (using Windows Explorer to set folders' properties, security tab) . Vista protects C:\ProgramFiles and profile directories much tighter than XP and earlier.
  • Give yourself & Everyone "read & write / full rights" to Vuze program folder (C:\Program Files\Vuze)
  • Also give Everyone full rights to Vuze profile directory (e.g. C:\Users\yourUsername\Appdata\Roaming\Azureus ) Link to directory found in bottom of Vuze's File options page.
  • Locate the downloaded files ("library" ?) to somewhere else than your profile or Vuze program directory ( and make sure that you/Everyone has write rights to that directory ). For example, create a new folder like C:\VuzeDownloads and tell Vuze to use that as default directory (in Files options).

You might write about this also to the bug forum, and to reference discussion here. Hopefully developers will notice.

Ps.
Curiously, you are also getting the one error message dedicated to developer called Tuxpaper. This error has surfaced recently in the logs:
0403 22:05:40] stderr] Tell Tux to fix this SWTSkinObjectContainer::switchSuffix::218,SWTSkinObjectBasic::switchSuffix::470,SWTSkinButtonUtility::setDisabled::136,ToolBarItem::setEnabled::97,ToolBarView::updateCoreItems::685,ToolBarView$11::currentlySelectedContentChanged::432,SelectedContentManager::changeCurrentlySelectedContent::94,SelectedContentManager::changeCurrentlySelectedContent::61,DisplayListener::setSelectedContent::217,DisplayListener::handleMessage::181,MessageDispatcherSWT$1::run::238,AEThread2$threadWrapper::run::255

Similar problem I'm having but on XP professional, and only since upgrading to 4.1.0.4
I had it all working great for ages since about version 2
But now I try to DL just one torrent file and it'll just keep crashing - but usually with a download speed of 3 or 4 hundred Kb/s showing.
I've tried limiting up and down speeds but doesn't seem to work - always end up having to use task manager to hard crash Azureus and start it again - but then shortly after the same happens again.
Anyway, debug zip attached - I hope you can help.
Thanks.

One thing which I noticed, is that you are using the old Safepeer plugin, which is outdated.
http://wiki.vuze.com/index.php/Safepeer_Migration

Your debug_x.logs are full of errors related to that. You might have noticed that even by yourself...

So, my advice to you:
1) uninstall the old outdated Safepeer plugin. Replace that by using the built-in IP filter feature.
2) check that in IP filters you use a blocklist download address that works.

If you search the forum for Safepeer, you will notice that there are several Safepeer users reporting problems with speed limits lately...

Ps.
And you have very many plugins enabled in general.
If removing Safepeer does not help, please disable all non-essential plugins and then try to check if some of them was the culprit.

There's several programs that have inserted themselves into our apps process. One of them could be the cause:

:\Program Files\SmartFTP Client\sfShellTools.dll
:\Program Files\Mediafour\MacDrive 7\MDVolumeIcons.dll
:\Program Files\Mediafour\MacDrive 7\MACDRAPI.DLL
:\PROGRA~1\KASPER~1\KASPER~1\mzvkbd.dll
:\PROGRA~1\KASPER~1\KASPER~1\mzvkbd3.dll
:\PROGRA~1\KASPER~1\KASPER~1\adialhk.dll
:\PROGRA~1\KASPER~1\KASPER~1\kloehk.dll
:\Program Files\Bonjour\mdnsNSP.dll

Try uninstalling these (one at a time or all of them, your choice) and see if things get better. If you find one of them the cause, and you really love the program, it might have settings to control their process injecting, but I would have no idea what that would look like (perhaps, "Integrate with Windows Explorer" or something). Or maybe upgrading the app might help.

Other than that, I see Ono is using up some CPU once in a while, but I'm assuming that's when you are playing it. If you aren't playing it, you could try uninstalling it too.

Good Luck

Bah, DispatchMessageW, how uninformative :(
I really need to make a UI config option for tracking SWT calls. If you add a "-J-Ddebug.swtexec=1" to the azureus.exe command line. Example:
"C:\Program Files\Azureus\Azureus.exe" -J-Ddebug.swtexec=1

This will cause the app to generate a swt_1.log and swt_2.log files in the logs directory, which will be included in any new debug.zip, and will (hopefully) tell us a more precise location of the CPU usage.

Edit: Just updated Java and it's fine, (I was pretty sure I already had the latest).
Edit2: It didn't fix it, it just took longer to get to 100% CPU.

If I interpret this thread correctly, even though many people (including myself) are finding Vuze taking all the CPU available, nobody knows why and what to do about it. Is there a place one cn download the earlier versions, or should one simply move back to Free Download Manager?

IS that really all that can be done -- return to an earlier version? I mean, really, 97% of CPU!

Well, considering we've actually gotten a debug.zip from like one or two people on this subject, yeah, that's the only way to fix it, because we have absolutely no idea why people are running into this problem.

hi, im having the same problems with vuze, tho i can supply some more detail. for me it only happens when im actively downloading not seeding. it isn't constant, it will jump up to total cpu usage for 5 min or so then drop back to normal and in a few min it will do it again. when i try to simply stop the active downloads it hangs and just says "stopping" until the cpu usage drops back to normal, once it hits normal only then will the download actually stop. this problem for me has only cropped up in the last month or so, so it may be something different then what the OP has trouble with. the included bug report was generated during one such intense cpu instance.
im using win xp32bit, if you need any other sys info let me know pls, id really like to find the reason for this problem.

I canlt see any point in continuing to use the program, especially if the company that makes it just throws up its hands when a major problem like this comes along.

Free Download Manager does the job quite well, without all the commercialism of Vuze.

Too bad; it looked good for a while there.

same here.
in my xp x64 installation vuze and svchost.exe NETWORK SERVICE use all the cpu. If i close and exit out of vuze then svchost.exe NETWORK SERVICE stops using cpu but the azureus process does not stop and continues using resources until killed.
thanks.

I had the same problem using Windows XP. Over 50% of my CPU was being used and made the computer run very slow. I then uninstalled Vuze and installed uTorrent and started the torrent again. The high use, more than 50%, continued. This told me that Vuze was not the problem. A little research and I found that the program ' vsmon.exe ' was the culprit. VS Monitor is part of the ZoneAlarm firewall package. This, the newest version 10.1.065.000, monitors the torrent continuously looking for malware and in doing so uses so much CPU power. It also reduces the torrent download speed. There is no way to disable the monitor. Here is what I did to solve the problem and if you are using Zone Alarm or another firewall that monitors your torrents then I suggest you do likewise.

1. Uninstalled uTorrent and reinstalled Vuze, a superior client - simply the best..

2. Uninstalled ZoneAlarm and turned on the Windows XP Firewall.

The results are that with the torrent downloading I am using only 8% of the CPU and getting more than 200 kB/s download speed and best of all my computer is running normally.

Don't blame Vuze - it is not at fault!

I'm a first time forum user. Hope this gets out there.

I have been downloading music and movies now for some time from Vuze Plus. Foolishly, I deleted nothing and now have over 50 downloads seeding. I feel that's the reason for 100% CPU Usage in Azereous which has my computer so blocked up I can't even delete anything. I tried deleting one at a time as well as deleting my whole library at one time. Nothing happens. I tried removing the program at "add/remove programs" on the control panel, and then reinstalled using my activation code. Same library and same problem came back. Once Azereous comes up, the computer is entirely frozen. Only way out is to hit "end process" in Task Manager.

Is there a simple way to clear my library for a beginner like me??

Thanks,

Roy
