Clicky

After searching for mindnode documents and adding tags to 15 or so document I noticed high CPU usage.

I checked Activity Monitor and HoudahSpot was using 135% of CPU.

I closed my search document and the high CPU usage continued.

I attempted the quit HoudahSpot and got a dialog stating:

"HoudahSpot cannot quit while file operation are in progress

Please wait until file operations have completed,

OK"

Five minutes later and I'm still getting the same dialog and high CPU usage.

I'm going to wait another 5 minutes and then force quit

Thanks

Hi Bob!

Could you use Activity Monitor to grab a process sample report?

On OS X Yosemite, there is a "gear" menu in the toolbar of Activity Monitor.
Select HoduahSpot in Activity Monitor.
Press the gear to get a menu.
Select "Sample Process".

Best,

Sorry, I had already forced HoudahSpot to quit.

But, I had an iCloud based MindNode unsaved document that I had tagged and opened from HoudahSpot. When I returned to the Finder I noticed the iCloud symbol next to the document name—indicated an uncompleted state. Could it be that HoudahSpot was waiting on that document to finishing saving and uploading?

Thanks

Bob

Hi Bob,

HoudahSpot calls upon the system to tag files. I am not sure if that call would wait for iCloud sync to complete, but I think that is unlikely.

Since HoudahSpot was using a lot of CPU it probably was spinning its wheels rather than waiting for tagging to complete.
Should this ever happen again, please try to grab a "sample" report. This will show where HoudahSpot is spinning its wheels or waiting.

I have tried tagging, re-tagging, un-tagging a bunch of files. So far I could not reproduce the problem here.

Best,
