100% CPU usage with VBoxGuestAdditions_5.1.5-110520 -> see #16075

Description

I installed VBoxGuestAdditions_5.1.5-110520.

Immediately after startup I hear the fan of my laptop running unusually so I check CPU usage.

top gives me 97% usage for VBoxClient and the process points to

/usr/bin/VBoxClient --draganddrop

Change History

I don't think we changed something in this code area recently so I assume that the same could happen with 5.1.4 Guest Additions installed. And this problem could depend on certain circumstances so I wonder if it's reproducible.

After restarting I no longer get high CPU usage with VBoxClient but with baloo_file_extr instead.

Well, baloo_file_extr is the KDE search index engine. That one will keep your CPU(s) busy for a long time unless you disable 'File Search in System Settings / Search'.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to obsolete
  • Component changed from guest additions to drag and drop
  • Summary changed from 100% CPU usage with VBoxGuestAdditions_5.1.5-110520 to 100% CPU usage with VBoxGuestAdditions_5.1.5-110520 -> see #16075

Closing as "obsolete" as not reproducible, but I will subscribe you to ticket #16075 which sounds similar (please tell me if you do not want that, it is reversible!)
