Bug ID: 327033
Summary: memory leak when re-creating all thumbnails
Platform: Archlinux Packages
Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
Reporter: vamp898 at ignaz.org
My PIctures Directory have 460GB of Images (~35k Files) and after digikam
detected/importat all them i wanted to re-create all thumbnails for faster
Here seems a memory leek to exist.
I used Tools --> Maintenance to re-create all thumbnails and said use all
>From that its hard to tell what hes doing, memory usage increases but CPU Usage
stays down, so it seems he tries to load all images into memory before doing
As soon digikam process reached 15,5 GB memory usage, my system freezes for
about 20 Seconds and then the Linux Kernel kills digikam.
Yeah thats all what i can say, im not able to recreate all thumbnails as
digikam wants to use more than 16GB memory for this action (what my system does
Steps to Reproduce:
Try to re-create all thumbnails of a large collection
digiKam crashed (because it gets killed by the kernel)
