Different behavior of es.exe on different pcs

Post by hardik » Tue Dec 10, 2019 2:59 pm

I am using the exactly same Everything.ini and Everything.exe on two different pcs, along with running the following commands in order:
Command 1: Everything.exe -startup
Command 2: es.exe parent:"D:" -size -full-path-and-name -attributes

On one of those pc's, es.exe is returning the results almost instantly. However, on the other pc, es.exe does not return anything. From the task manager, I saw that the es.exe process continues to run and it does not return any output even if I wait for several minutes.

Any help in that direction will be really helpful. Let me know if there is any other detail required from my end.

PFB the contents of Everything.ini file:

Code: Select all

; Please make sure Everything is not running before modifying this file.

On the non-working, does es.exe D: return anything?

A small correction in the question asked.

For the non working, it may or may not return the result. If it returns, it behaves like the "working one", and if does not, I can see it in the task manager. Probability of not returning results on non working is far greater. So yes, the command "es.exe D:" will return results if it gets executed successfully, but most of the times, this command (and other tried commands) gets stuck on the non working.

On the PC that is not returning results:

Could you please run Everything.exe without the -startup command line option:
Everything.exe

After you run your ES search and it does not return any results, is there anything shown in the status bar in the windowed search client?
Is the windowed search client responsive?

Re: Different behavior of es.exe on different pcs

I tried running everything search using the UI (i.e., without the “-startup” command line) and please find my observations below.

I was able to see the everything search GUI. It was empty for some time (a minute maybe) and then it populated the UI with a list of the files present on the system. After this, when I ran the es command (es.exe parent:"C:\Users" -size -full-path-and-name -attributes), it got stuck.

When opened the everything search UI using the task bar, I was able to see that it was saying “730, 971 objects” in the status bar. (see attached file Screenshot (6).png). When I tried to type “hardik” in the search bar, it went to an unresponsive state. (see attached file Screenshot (7).png).

Let me know if there is any other detail required from my end.

-attributes
Everything doesn't index attributes by default.
Gathering this information can take a very long time (Everything will appear to hang).

Please try indexing attribute information:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Indexes tab on the left.
  • Check Index Attributes.
  • Click OK.

As you can see from the contents of the ini file I shared earlier, the "index_attributes" is already set to 1.

In addition, the same command (es.exe parent:"C:\Users" -size -full-path-and-name -attributes) returns results instantly on the working pc. The same command returns results on the non working pc instantly as well (if it does not gets hung).

Re: Different behavior of es.exe on different pcs

Post by void » Thu Dec 12, 2019 10:39 am

Thanks for the info.

I tried your Everything.ini on a few PCs here with no luck reproducing the issue.

Could you please send some debug info?

Could you please try running Everything in verbose debug mode:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /debug
  • Type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /verbose
Run your ES query again.
Repeat until Everything freezes.
What is shown in the debug console?

I'll just note that in messing with the other thread, Everything.exe getting initialized by wrong Everything.ini, I may have seen something...

es, 1 time, was slow at returning results
CPU usage did go up

I was able to view both, the delay in returning results from es, & the CPU rise, though I can't say just what cause either.

It could have been a coincidence, just some unusual system activity that occurred just as I was running es, but thinking not.

Anyhow, I was going back & forth & up & down with stuff like:

everything -startup -instance test123
everything -exit -instance test123
es sky2
es sky2 -instance test123
es sky2 -instance test123 -config config.ini...

All kinds of various configurations, & during one of my es searches, I observed the delay in results & at the same time, high CPU.

I will get you the required once the issue reproduces in the upcoming week.
I observed the delay in results & at the same time, high CPU.
I will be on the look out for this and get back if the same happens on my end as well.

Re: Different behavior of es.exe on different pcs

Hello,

PFA the Everything Debug Log. Multiple es queries had been run one after the other. Everything did return the results but it took a lot of time before returning the results. I had three drives out of which only "C:" (217 GB free of 250 GB) drive had data where as "D:" (194 GB free of 195 GB) and "E:" (485 GB free of 485 GB) were almost empty. It has a CD drive too ("F:" Drive) - but no CD/DVD was inserted. Given that data set was not that huge on the system, it shouldn't have taken that much time to return results. Can you please check the logs and see if they can help us getting to the root cause?

The Everything utility was running on a Dell Inspiron laptop (core i3) and attached is the computer information. Let me know if anything else is required from my end.

NOTE: I have renamed Everything.exe to SearchService.exe and ES.exe to SearchUtil.exe.

Oh, may as well mention, if using multiple "drives", very possible that particular (HDD) drive(s) are asleep (spun down), so when a query (in general) is made that accesses them, it takes some time for them to awaken (spin up), & that may delay results (in general [& also as seen by Everything]).


(Not that I know what any of it means, but...)

Sorts seem slow.
Are you indexing the attributes you are sorting against?

What is the date/time of Everything.db?
Do you have more then one Everything.db?

Thanks for the debug logs.
2020-01-13 14:05:38.577: bad file record type 00000000
These are normal, you can ignore these.
2020-01-13 14:06:49.641: update index C:
2020-01-13 14:09:58.372: updated C: in 188.580042 seconds
The slowness is caused by processing many changes to your C: drive.
These changes are scanned in the background.
However, once they are scanned they are then processed:
2020-01-13 14:12:38.013: processed usn records in 144.717115 seconds
2020-01-13 14:12:38.061: processed ntfs usn records in 146.132799 seconds
Everything will be locked/frozen while records are processed.
Usually this is quick. However, if there thousands of records it may take a few seconds (a few minutes in your case?!?).
The next major version of Everything will process these in the background and not lock the UI thread.

Could you please try launching Everything with the -no-db command line option.
I think in your case building a fresh index every time you run Everything will provide the best performance.

Re: Different behavior of es.exe on different pcs

I observed extremely high disk usage (95%+) on one of the systems whenever Everything was running on it and when I killed it from Task Manager, the disk usage plummeted. For the same system, it does not return the results most of the times. But this behavior is highly inconsistent as it might return responses sometimes even though if the disk usage is high.

In addition, on some systems, disk usage was not that high but still it did not return the response. However, sometimes it did.

So I don't see a set pattern as to why this could be happening?

Can there be any windows processes or applications that may be running at the same time as Everything on these systems that could be choking Everything? If yes, could you name them so that I can stop those processes/applications while running ES queries to see if Everything returns responses?

When ES query got stuck again on one of the system, I was able to see through process explorer that there was a deadlock. I don't exactly remember the phrase in the process explorer but it said deadlock.

In addition, I changed my entire implementation to using Everything SDK and have been facing the same issue.
