Description

18 years ago
This page causes the CPU usage to peg, and makes the load jump endlessly (it's
gotten to over 6 before I killed it).

The page loads fine under the PSM that comes with M18, PR3, and 6.0 for Win32.

Confirmed that it loads very slowly on Linux and Mac, although a reload helps.
The site is running a Netscape-Enterprise/3.5.1 server with only one cipher
turned on - SSL2 128bit (RC4 with MD5). SSL3 is disabled.

Multiple instances of psm are started - I got 5, each at 20% usage.  When the
page is closed, the problem does not go with it.  Two instances of PSM stick
around, hogging the resources.  But they go away after a secure session to a
different site is created.

While I don't see the problem on the above page (that page just doesn't load for
me, but cpu stays normal), I often see the cpu going to 100% as a result of psm.
I use ssl for my imap mail, and so far I haven't had a session longer than an
hour or so without getting these cpu gobbling psm processes. It's not really
useable at the moment (I don't want to have to be restarting my entire
mail/browser session all the time), so I may go back to using stunnel for a
while (even though psm does seem to be faster when it works).

Any pointers on how to track this down further? Are there debugging options for
psm that might help? Although I'm waiting for psm bug 63667 to be fixed before I
can update my build - I'm stuck using 2000122213)

Is this still a problem with the latest nightly builds?

Bug #65703 appears to be a dup of this one, yeah?

Just tried mybills.com with 0.8.1 on Linux...
the pages load (fairly fast now :), but it still goes to 100%, but hitting stop
drops it back down to 0. It's definitely useable, so as far as mybills.com is
concerned, the severity is only minor now. I'd change it, but I don't know about
the other bugs that have merged into this one.
Time for apt-get remove netscape476!
