I have a strange issue that I was hoping someone had an idea of what I can check.
I usually only notice this when I have more than 1 tab open (and by tabs, it can be any combination of Editors or Query Builders). I have them open, but not usually running (or they have already completed). I’ll notice the fan in my laptop increase speed, and then I look at my task manager. I will see Toad.exe with 25% CPU utilization.
I then proceed to close all tabs open. It still is using high resources. I’ll then take note that the I/O Written Bytes by Toad.exe is extraordinarily large (as in multiple gigabytes). Today, I saw it was over 7 gigs. I found a large temp file in my temporary directory that was increasing in size as was the task manager’s i/o bytes written increasing.
I disconnected from the Oracle server I was using, and I’m prompted with a message saying if I disconnect it will cancel my running queries. But, what queries? I say no and look at my background processes. Nothing is listed, so it shouldn’t be running any queries. I disconnect and say yes. My fan slows and becomes quiet, but at this point in time, Toad is locked up. The message I just answered yes to does not go away, and the program stops responding, so I have to kill it.
Does anyone have an idea?
I’m using TDP Base Edition, v184.108.40.2066 on a Windows XP SP3 machine, with 3GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i5 (dual core, 4 threads).
