Opera - operapluginwrapper - insane HDD activity (swapping)

Postby kwevej on Tue Mar 15, 2011 4:05 pm

Hello,

It happens from time to time - OS becomes slow and unresponsible; HDD high activity.
When I switch to tty1 and run iotop, kswap and many others are at 99%.

Accidentally I've found out, that system goes back to normal when I kill Opera's operapluginwrapper - libflashplayer.so

Today, I've found another person with the same problem:

Anybody else having the same?
I've disabled plugins in opera (just on demand) until it's solved.

EDIT:
32-bit, 2GB RAM, TP R400 http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:R400
opera Version 11.01 Build 1190

We are missing context, such as Opera version being used, whether the OS is 64boit or 32bit and so on..
    hardware resources, especially RAM (memory) sizing

Not completely resolved, however some progress..

I use Opera and haven't had any problems, then again I generally avoid flash only or heavy flash mode sites..

That one talks about CPU usage - this is not the case. The problem is, that Opera (the wrapper) consumes more and more memory over time. The same like here: http://kuc.cz/izp3kq
