Subject[REGRESSION] 5.0-rc2: iptables -nvL consumes 100% of CPU and hogs memory with kernel 5.0-rc2
Date
Hi!

Does that ring a bell with someone? For now I just downgraded, no time
for detailed analysis.

Debian bug report at:

iptables -nvL consumes 100% of CPU and hogs memory with kernel 5.0-rc2
https://bugs.debian.org/919325

4.20 works, 5.0-rc2 showed this issue with iptables. Configurations attached.

Excerpt from Debian bug report follows:

I upgraded to self-compiled 5.0-rc2 today and found the machine to be slow
after startup. I saw iptables consuming 100% CPU, it only responded to
SIGKILL. It got restarted several times, probably by some systemd service.

Then I started 'iptables -nvL' manually. And I got this:

% strace -p 5748
[… tons more, in what appeared an endless loop …]

strace: Process 5748 detached

and this (output from atop):

PID TID MINFLT MAJFLT VSTEXT VSLIBS VDATA VSTACK VSIZE RSIZE PSIZE VGROW RGROW SWAPSZ RUID EUID MEM CMD 1/16
11575 - 61552 0 152K 2324K 5.0G 132K 5.1G 5.1G 0K 240.4M 240.5M 0K root root 33% iptables

I had it growing till 10 GiB before I stopped it by SIGKILL to prevent
excessive swapping.

I will attach kernel configuration.

That is all I am willing to spend time on for now before going to sleep.
I will however reboot with older 4.20 kernel to see whether it is kernel
related.
