Description unaltrafaccia 2009-05-11 15:23:49 UTC
Documents with many comments (less than 1000) cause overload of CPU and frequent
crashes. No problem with Openoffice 2.x. From this point of view Openoffice 3.1
is worse than 3.0.1. Opening of documents with more than 1000 comments cause
immediate crash.

Comment 2 eric.savary 2009-05-11 19:31:30 UTC
Cannot reproduce in 310m11 on Vista. No crash. No high CPU usage.
Comment 3 max.odendahl 2009-05-12 08:58:11 UTC
cannot reproduce on Mac OS

Comment 6 jbf.faure 2009-05-17 18:50:33 UTC
OOo needs some time (~ 30 - 60 seconds) to place each comment but it does the
job without crash on my machine : Ubuntu 8.04 wth 1 Go RAM.
Comment 7 unaltrafaccia 2009-05-18 12:16:33 UTC
On my “old” machine (windows xp sp3, 512MB RAM, 128MB VRAM) the start of the
file and the placement of comments are slow (with high CPU usage), but there are
also problems when the loading is completed: if I type only two letters in a
document which has many comments, CPU usage goes up from 0% to 100% (for a few
seconds, sometimes for a longer time), and the cursor gets stuck. In OOo 3.0.1
this happens when comments are visualized, in OOo 3.1 also when comments are not
visualized.
Comment 8 michael.ruess 2009-05-19 13:03:30 UTC
MRU->OD: typing text in the attached document makes Writer extremely slow. I
tried to enter some characters e.g. on page 4 and it took some seconds to
process and display the new characters.
Comment 9 max.odendahl 2009-05-19 22:18:28 UTC
mod->facciadipietra: it would really help if you can attach a document which
crashes, up to know, I can not reproduce any crash at all.
Comment 10 unaltrafaccia 2009-05-25 14:08:34 UTC
facciadipietra->mod: Sorry, I have problems in this moment. You can try and add
1000 comments. 2000 comments produced crash on my computer.

Comment 12 max.odendahl 2009-05-27 21:51:02 UTC
please provide step by step instruction how to get it to crash, I can't
reproduce this.
Comment 13 unaltrafaccia 2009-05-29 14:55:49 UTC
On my computer the problem is perfectly evident. But this happens on my
computer, which has these characteristics: Acer (2005), Intel Pentium 1.73GHz,
512 MB RAM, 128 MB VRAM (ATI Mobility Radeon X600), Windows XP Home Edition
(2002 version), Service Pack 3. And no other problems.
Steps: I open the file, immediately the loading seems very difficult, and OOo
crashes in 30-60 seconds. When it doesn’t crash immediately, the crash happens
in a few seconds after any simple action; example: if I try to open the “Find
and Replace” window, or if I try to open another OOo file. And in every moment,
at every action, the CPU is very “stressed”. That’s all.
I repeat: this happens on my computer, which has those features. Perhaps the new
comments-system of OOo3 needs a more powerful machine. Or perhaps I have to give
up using comments in my usual way.
Comment 14 max.odendahl 2009-05-29 15:01:17 UTC
I can't reproduce, but if it crashes, you should get a crash report, please
submit the id so someone can post the crash stack
Comment 15 unaltrafaccia 2009-09-03 15:39:37 UTC
I have observed the same high CPU usage in more powerful computers! Loading
problems, and high CPU usage when I type text.

od->mod: I think this is Your playground - please take over.
Comment 17 unaltrafaccia 2009-09-09 16:49:35 UTC
I have tried with Mac OS (mac os x 10.4.10.  Intel coreduo 2.4 GHz, 1 GB ram):
same problems: slow loading, and when I type text the cursor gets stuck; it take
some seconds to process and display the new characters (a little slower than
Windows!)
Comment 18 unaltrafaccia 2009-09-09 16:54:18 UTC
it takes some seconds to process and display the new characters
Comment 19 Mathias_Bauer 2009-09-09 17:03:32 UTC
Do you both have Language Tool installed or any other extension?
Comment 20 Mathias_Bauer 2009-09-09 17:04:13 UTC
Oops, sorry, comments should go to another issues. :-[
Comment 21 unaltrafaccia 2010-01-22 17:52:33 UTC
I have tested different files on different machines and on different Windows
versions, and also on Mac OS (mac os x 10.4.10.  Intel coreduo 2.4 GHz, 1 GB ram):
identical problems: slow loading, and when I type text the cursor gets stuck;
Openoffice 3.0, 3.0.1, 3.1.0 3.1.1 takes some seconds (with high CPU usage) to
process and display the new characters (Mac os a little slower than
Windows).

I don't know if this can actually have to do, but after the installation of the
last Java version (build 1.6.0_21-b07) openoffice.org (writer) has less frequent
crashes with large files.
