Re: Planet stalling?

More info: for http://live.linuxchix.org/ (56 subscriptions, 8.2MB in
the cache directory according to du -sh) it uses up to 32MB of memory
while running. This does explain nicely why it's so painful to run on my
linode, which has a grand total of 64MB of RAM :(

You may try to clear up the cache and let it get recreated from scratch.
It appears planetplanet has a bug with "old" caches, one of the 
manifestations is when you get a single blog filling up all of your Planet.

An off-list reply suggested that I remove my cache completely and re-run
Planet, because this effect is due to running Planet on an old cache.
Alas, this doesn't seem to be correct. On a completely empty cache, it
used about 29MB of memory.

... check to see if you might have a particular feed that's stalling or 
not fetching at a sane rate of speed.  using lsof to poke around for open 
sockets would be a place to start.

Unless the system starts swapping heavily, which slows everything down
one hundred to one thousand fold, the process completes in three minutes
or so. What length of time should I be looking for something stalling
for?

The reason I'm concerned about this is that while in normal
circumstances, having it use half the available RAM for a few minutes is
OK, under any of the following circumstances it pushes my system into
swap hell:

 1. Apache is getting a lot of requests
 2. another intensive process (sa-learn) happens to run at the same time

This can easily cause enough problems with swapping (the Planet process

Then best would probably be to kill previous planet runs in a cron job
as well.  Earlier, when I used resource-limited machine as well (~64mb
RAM too), planetplanet caused other services to die occassionally. 

Moving to a more memory set-up improved everything, of course ;-)

Hello,

I have a Planet-powered website (Planet Wiki), how can I get a link to it from 
http://www.planetplanet.org/ ?

Thanks,

Hi Hanno,

I'd love it if you could send this patch for feedparser upstream [1] - we
just include it in our tarball for ease of use.

Thanks,

[1] feedparser.sf.net appears to be the public location nowadays
