CPU Usage of 50% because of Perl


I installed FosWiki to my Windows Computer (Foswiki- The installation works great and it was pretty easy. But after, i think about 2 or 3 weeks, the Windows machine gets more and more slowly. I looked at the task manager of the PC - there is a process called "perl.exe". I know that this is a process of the Wiki installation and that I need Perl for Foswiki. But this process still uses 50% of my CPU. Sometimes it opens twice automatically, so my CPU´s usage is about 100%.

Hardware of the PC:
  • Dual Core CPU 2,8 GHz
  • 3,75 GB Ram
I don´t know what to do.. I hope u can help me.

Do you have any special plugins installed on your Foswiki? Which webserver do you use? If Apache, do you use mod_perl or any other perl accelerator?

Hard to tell... Some (view?) processes are hanging. Any chance to inspect those zombies? (Which topic is being view, etc?)

Afaik ExcelImportExportPlugin calls some external binaries. Maybe those child-processes hang.

mh, Im going to reinstall the System. Can I copy my actually Wiki version and paste it later?

I want to make 2 partitions - c:\ and d:\! Wiki was installed to C:\Program Files\Foswiki before. Now it is installed to D:\FosWiki\. Can I copy my wiki files there?

Ok, I trieed it myself and it works partly. I copied the most files of the FosWiki foulder from c:\Program files\ and inserted it to d:\Foswiki\. My webs are still there - but only the higher Webs.

If I insert the lib foulder my Wiki installation doesn´t work. Where are the lower Webs, i need them :/

  • Web 1 (restored)

    • Web 1.1 (not restored)
    • Web 1.2 (not restored)
    • Web 1.3 (not restored)
  • Web 2 (restored)

    • Web 2.1 (not restored)
    • Web 2.2 (not restored)
