Description

When tried to load attached layer QGIS freezes (high cpu activity and no response).
In 0.7.4 it works fine (same layer).
Built against GDAL-1.2.6

History

#1 Updated by Redmine Admin over 14 years ago

File is too big to be attached (3 MB) so I put it on http://kosatka.fns.uniba.sk/~1balazovic/qgis/layer.tar.gz

#2 Updated by Gavin Macaulay - over 14 years ago

Works for me with qgis 3a8b8164 (SVN r2579), gdal version 1.2.6. It does however take about 30 seconds to display the map. This is probably due in part to the large size of each separate geometry. The .shp file is 7.8MB, but there are just 36 polygons in it. Can you confirm that the layer eventually loads if you wait long enough?

It seems to load properly. I was probably too imapatient, sorry...(or maybe the source changed since then...?)

see shapefiles on http://dedibox.acacs.org/pentes/

When I try to load shapefile d09_pente_vecteur_class.shp layer with qgis 0.8 under debian GNU/Linux etch QGIS freezes (high cpu activity and no response)

When I try to load shapefile d64_pente_vecteur_class.shp layer with qgis 0.8 under debian GNU/Linux etch it works fine

The both shapefiles work fine on qgis 0.7.4

I have downloaded and compiled the source code on June 27 on https://svn.qgis.org/repos/qgis/trunk/qgis qgis_unstable

My gdal version is 1.3.1

#5 Updated by Redmine Admin over 14 years ago

Version of Qgis : Qgis-user] QGIS 0.8.0 Preview Release 1 source downloaded and compiled this morning.

The layer d09_pente_vecteur_class.shp (see http://dedibox.acacs.org/pentes/ ) can be opened, but it takes 11 minuts on my machine:

cat /prop/cpuinfo

Then the zoom in is fast, but the zoom out to full extent take about 10 minuts.

This layer is opened in 11 seconds on qgis 0.7.4 and 9 seconds on Arcexplorer 4 Java Edition.

#6 Updated by Gavin Macaulay - over 14 years ago

Do you have anti-aliasing turned on in qgis? Could you try loading your layer with and without anti-aliasing to see if there is a large time difference?

The files are a bit big for me to download over my dialup modem, so if you could also run 'ogrinfo -a d09_pente_vecteur_class.shp' and let us know how many features are in the file that would be useful too.

#7 Updated by anonymous - over 14 years ago

-anti-aliasing turned of in qgis= 11 minuts to download d09_pente_vecteur_class.shp

-anti-aliasing turned on in qgis= 3 minuts 30 seconds to download d09_pente_vecteur_class.shp, but a zoom in is 12 minuts !

-extract of the command: ogrinfo -a d09_pente_vecteur_class.shp

As a side note, its worth building a spatial index on your shapefiles - it should offer significant performance improvement for zoomed in redraws. It takes a couple of seconds only to redraw when zoomed in on my 1.5ghz pc with indexes built.

#9 Updated by Martin Dobias about 14 years ago

When trying the sample layer from lulaby I've found out that it's once again bug in Qt - this very long rendering time takes place when QImage is used for rendering, with QPixmap it's OK.

The question is how to fix this issue - use QPixmap by default and offer QImage rendering just as "unstable" option?

This bug is also in newly released Qt4.2 RC1, together with bad polygon filling. Might be interesting to try to create an example from this data for Trolls...

#10 Updated by Martin Dobias almost 14 years ago

Tested again with Qt 4.2.1 with following results how long it has been rendering:

  • antialiasing off, rendering to QImage: 40 seconds + bad polygon filling
  • antialiasing on, rendering to QImage: 6 seconds
  • antialiasing off, rendering to QPixmap: 4 seconds

#11 Updated by Gavin Macaulay - almost 14 years ago

  • Status changed from Feedback to Closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

The slowness to display and incorrect polygon filling (discussed in ticket #83) are something that we can't do much about at the moment. In other respects the orignal problem in this ticket has been resolved.
