CrashPlan is resource intensive
Josh 201604 KWP
The GUI, when idle, chews up to 30% CPU.

Ok, whatever.

But on Linux, I was running into odd problems, such as:
tail: cannot watch `anyfilename': No space left on device

Wasn't a ulimit issue. Turns out that I ran out of inotify watches for root.

The fix was to add this to /etc/sysctl.conf (double the old value):


Activate now was sysctl -w fs.inotify.max_user_watches=65536

When I searched, it looks like other people have run into this issue with CrashPlan.

Anyway, I'm still running into problems where I can't move the repository data for a client.. about a gig in, I get "Unable to move - unknown system error"

Only one hit, no details on response... *sigh*
