I noticed a major slowdown on 2.2.2 Android, and it looks as though it's caused by too many logcat processes. With adb shell, I ran
ps | wc -l and there were about 400 processes, after running
killall logcat I ran the ps count again and there were around 200.
Even something as simple as
ls would take like 10 seconds before, and after cleaning up all those Logcats it was instantaneous.
Is this a known bug in Android?
