    dbus daemon, loads of activity (slowing down machine)

    Hi,

    when calling 'top' dbus is having load of activity ('dbus-monitor --session') outputs also a lot of action (see attachement). this has effect that my machine is slowing down and normal work takes ages.

    I have no clue where the activity is coming from. I also had a look at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...or/+bug/441828. But there are no unnormal devices plugged in... (just keyboard + cordless mouse).

    when starting the machine the cpu load is ~9%. After a while (after 1 day) it goes up to 70-80%. the started applications do not change during that time. so i guess somewhere there is a leak.

    thanks for help.

    i removed evolution (anyway am using thunderbird). weirdly it (or some dependencies) was occupying system ressources.

    this solved my issue.

    damn it. my problems started again after last ubuntu automatic update.

    does anyone have an advice how to analyze which program is causing this high dbus load?

    thanks.

    I have the same problem, dbus deamon being a memory hog and my machine having a hard time coping with it

    I also have this problem. Recently upgraded to 9.10 and noticed that my cursor is perpetually showing the loading/waiting status.

    'top' shows dbus-daemon always at 10% cpu or more and 'dbus-monitor' spews forth and endless stream of structured data (similar to json).

    My machine is a netbook (HP Mini) with no peripherals attached.

    UPDATE:

    Possibly relevant message in /var/log/messages

    Code:
    bonobo-activation-server (max-21898): could not associate with desktop session: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-oS94n4ThFo: Connection refused
    And in /var/log/syslog (repeated many times)

    Code:
    gnome-session[1344]: CRITICAL: error getting session bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-oS94n4ThFo: Connection refused

    Don't know if this is a solution for everyone or not, but I removed Ubuntu One Gnome client via Synaptic and the problem has disappeared.

    hmmm, false alarm. problem persists, though not always commenced on start up.

    curiously, I did notice recently that it started when I loaded maps.google.com using the chrome browser.

    if there are any solutions I would love to know, it is rather annoying.

    I used
    Code:
    sudo service dbus restart
    the last time it happened to me.
