Python high cpu utilization


Kolibri’s Python process is constantly consuming ~34% of a 4 core cpu, even when not in use.

I did a clean install of Kolibri and noticed the high cpu utilization after downloading about 21GB of Khan Academy content.

Technical details

  • Kolibri version - 0.15.9
  • Operating system - Windows 10 Pro, 10.0.19045, 64 bit
  • Browser - Brave 1.45.123
  • Python 3.6.8 (64 bit)

Hardware - core i5-4570S 2.9GHz desktop, 16GB ram, Kolibri server running from C:\ on a 120GB SSD with 64GB free space.

PS C:\Users\user> kolibri --version
kolibri, version 0.15.9
PS C:\Users\user> kolibri status
INFO     2022-12-11 23:49:19,086 Option DEBUG in section [Server] being overridden by environment variable KOLIBRI_DEBUG
INFO     2022-12-11 23:49:19,086 Option DEBUG_LOG_DATABASE in section [Server] being overridden by environment variable KOLIBRI_DEBUG_LOG_DATABASE
OK, running (0)
Kolibri running on:
PS C:\Users\user>

My intention with this setup is to setup a Windows laptop/desktop pre-loaded with Kolibri and Khan Academy content; then give it to someone who doesn’t have internet access so they can catch up on math and science at home.

To that end, I installed Kolibri, added some channel content from Khan Academy and viewed a couple videos from the “Learn” tab in the Kolibri UI to confirm the content is available.

Has anyone else seen this behavior?
