100% disk usage



  • This is weird. Disk usage jumps to 100% after 10-15 minutes of browsing. http://i.imgur.com/zhCMvya.png It started 2 days ago. I've tried disabling all plugins. but it didn't stop. If I exit vivaldi, I still see vivaldi process in the taskbar. If I end the process, then disk usage goes down right away.

  • This disk usage is usually related to the Topsites File.

    Read this and linked threads for explanations/workarounds:

    You don't mention which version you have, maybe you could also update as improvements have been (and are still being) worked on.

    Thanks. Will try that.

    forgot to mention version information.
    updated op.



  • Im experiencing the same problem and also made a thread but got no replies:

    https://vivaldi.net/forum/vivaldi-browser/10964-100-disk-load-problem-re-visited

    using this
    1.1.453.52 (Stable channel) (32-bit)
    @ win10

    i was very happy when vivaldi stopped doing this "thing" with the 100% load of the disk but unfortunately it is doing it again.
    ALSO what occurred again is all thumbnails in speed-dial simply disappeared.

    whats the reason for this very, very annoying problem?
    i know deleting or setting read-only for the topsites file is a workaround but isnt it possible to address this problem to get rid of it?

    Explained in the thread(s) I linked to.

    As I said, it is still being worked on.
    At present only workarounds are available:-
    a) Regularly monitor and, when needed export bookmarks then delete Topsites (let Vivaldi recreate it then import bookmarks again). My Personal preference is NOT to make it read-only as it is updated with bookmarks/Speedial info
    b) Reroute your profile directory to non-hard drive location e.g. USB drive; with command line switch ( –profile-dir="F:\Vivaldi_profile" )
    Where F: is USB Drive - but of course, you risk losing all settings if USB is not available :oops:



  • Is there a bugtracking list with information about the progress?



  • Hi, I also have this issue. I am on version 1.1.453.52 (Stable channel) (32-bit). The only way of stopping this is to bring up task manager and stop two issues of vivaldi running in the background. It is so intense that I have a hard time running any other program until the background process is stopped. This needs to be addressed, as running in the background after the browser is closed is unacceptable.

    No, there is no public tracking about the fixing progress.
    I and some other Vivaldi tester team members can tell you whats going on.

    So whats the problem here with the toplist/journal HDD 100% I/O bug then? And the priority its addressed with? :)

    Which bug number?



  • Gwen-Dragon
    One of the threads I linked to mentioned VB-16139

    Although, whether that is actually the correct number for the ongoing problem, I don't know.

    Sorry, but this bug is unconfirmed, nobody can reproduce this. We try to catch als this bugs, be sure.
    May depend on Windows version, on Hardware, on Security software.

    I never had 100% HD usage with my Hitachi HDs.



  • Most of the high disk usage scenarios are just problems dragged from the past but already fixed.

    Just delete your "topsites" file to take advantage of the fixes, and report any problem only if that proved to be uneffective.



  • Same thing here, 1.1.453.59 (Stable channel) (32-bit).

    Thrashing continues after closing Vivaldi, Windows 8.1 all updates downloaded, no antivirus crap.
    The Tp Sites is a fairly large (84MB) SQLLite file, which is being used extensively.
