Summary0003534: Reset cadet is called too often, taking 100% CPU during transfer
DescriptionRunning GNUNet under Intel V-Tune I can see that reset_cadet is responsible for the majority of CPU usage. Often making the application use 100% of CPU.

From the function description, it was supposed to be called only when something wrong happened.

TagsNo tags attached.

Futher checking the profile. Looks like that gnunet-service-fs and gnunet-service-cadet get in a loop. Both consuming 100% CPU and doing nothing, as the download transfer is already done ( an 600MB file transmitted with FS_delay setting disabled)

Looks like that transmit_sqm is called and the condition NULL == buf get hit every time. Calling the reset_cadet_async.

Yeah, look at this flow. It's a loop.

cadet_reset_task => reset_cadet = > GNUNET_CADET_channel_destroy =>
Inside GNUNET_CADET_channel_destroy:

if (GNUNET_YES == th_is_payload (th))
   th->notify (th->notify_cls, 0, NULL);

It calls transmit_sqm with buf == NULL, so it will always call => reset_cadet_aync << LOOP

One question might help: if transfer is done, why is a new transmission requested?

I tried to fix it in r34248-34249.

It cancel the notify before destroying the cadet channel. I do not know if this is the right fix, but is working here nevertheless.

I saw the fix, and changed the API calls a little bit. My point is that cancelling whatever is pending before calling channel destroy is a good workaroud. A fix would be not to call transmit_ready when the transfer is done, in the first place, just call channel_destroy.

Also, indiscriminately calling reset_cadet on any NULL == buf seems a bit... radical ;)
