    My apache error log was just full of:

    PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on null in /var/www/html/fog/lib/client/updateclient.class.php on line 24

    My GUI isn’t very responsive and is sometimes timing out.

    We were running 1.12, up until sometime this spring. Since then we’ve been on a trunk version. The last update was from RC8.

    I would say over 10k clients. I’ve turned off the client updater for now. We’ll use something else to get the legacy clients updated to version 11.

    Top was showing a load average of 147 when class was in session in RC8. Often mysql would be the highest cpu utilization, but then there would be dozens and dozens of apache2 instances. With RC9 the load average doesn’t climb so high, but there’s a bit broken too.

    If found and confirmed the issue.

    However, I would HIGHLY recommend you update to the new client. Client Updater on the legacy client uses this file. I’ve cleaned up and added checks to ensure safety which will show up for rc 10.

    What does top show ?
