    Same problem for me ! Since last three weeks me too. This problem occure on my ArchLinux and my Kubuntu. I've got an other friend on archlinux which has the same problem.

    Psylo6 I have just tried installing Discord through flatpak (up until now I had been using pacman or AUR packages). I'll let you know how it goes!

    I launched discord in a terminal in order to get the log in case it crashes. When it did so, I had my terminal full of this line printed again and again :

    Error occurred in handler for 'DISCORD_PROCESS_UTILS_GET_MEMORY_INFO': [Error: Failed to create memory dump]

    Maybe it can help to find the issue

    I think I found the issue. I installed KDE and Discord worked fine but KDE was too much for my old desktop computer so I tried switching back to GNOME 3 and Discord seems to be working now. I guess my GNOME installation was somehow broken.

    Psylo6 When I had the lag issue I didn't get any error messages printed to my terminal. I only got a deprecation warning, but I don't think that was harmful.

    I have the same issue, I also get the error messages printed when being in a voicechannel.

    Error occurred in handler for 'DISCORD_PROCESS_UTILS_GET_MEMORY_INFO': [Error: Failed to create memory dump]

    Same here,

    When joining a voice channel, the interface starts lagging, and it slowly increases to the point where the whole thing becomes basically unusable. Quitting and restarting Discord solves the issue for ~a minute, then it slows down again.

    Running it from terminal, I get the same error message when it starts lagging :

    Error occurred in handler for 'DISCORD_PROCESS_UTILS_GET_MEMORY_INFO': [Error: Failed to create memory dump]

    Tried installing using the pacman package or the tarball from the official website, didn't change anything. The Flatpak package used to be fine, until ~a few months ago.


    Distro : Manjaro

    Exact same issues as mentioned in thread. Discord eventually slows to a crawl and the process must be killed manually then restarted

    [Error occurred in handler for 'DISCORD_PROCESS_UTILS_GET_MEMORY_INFO': [Error: Failed to create memory dump]

    Distro: ArcoLinux

    Same, arch linux, I open discord, 1 minute and this thing is literally unusable

    I don't know if this issue is an electron issue but I don't think I had it with other applications that are built on top of it

    dwm window manager (if this is any relevant) nvidia gpu, hardware acceleration doesn't make any difference

    precisely the same here, seems to be correlated to high(or any at all of) voice/screenshare/video usage

    Manjaro, awesomewm

    Yep, same exact issue along with the same memory dump error messages, running Ubuntu 18.04 with i3wm. Usable for a few minutes while in voice call, then UI starts to disappear in chunks (I think this is an i3wm electron issue, it happens sometimes in things like Slack and VS Code), rendering it really slow and in need of a restart.

    Same here. I'm running Arcolinux and the problem appears on Qtile and my Awesom WM

    Same problem on EndeavourOS using Qtile. Now im trying using discord with the --no-sandbox.

    Same thing here on Arch as well. I've tried the --no-sandbox flag (from a reddit thread somewhere) and I've also tried using discord_arch_electron from the AUR to use the system electron (discord bundles in their own version with the package in the mainline repos) so I don't think that it's an electron issue.

    same thing on arch here with i3-gaps (and previously gnome). both --no-sandbox and using discord_arch_electron from the aur haven't fixed anything

    same here, got worse with the update from ubuntu 20.10 to ubuntu 21.04 using i3 the problem happened sporadically on 20.10 but now I have it after a couple of minutes in voice every time.it also seams to use a lot of perfomrance and slow down my entire system.

    the lag is directly proportional to the number of Errors I get. the no-sandbox flag doesn't help at all for me.

    Reading this makes me lose hope, I also had the same issue, I don't even know what's the cause. I think it only happens after joining a voice channel

    QTILE window manager

    Same problem here. For me it seems if I just start a voice / video chat and don't do anything else with the window it seems to work fine for hours, but once I start to interact with the ui, for example do also post or read text chats etc... the main window breaks after 1-2 hours. When I have "popped out" the video window that keeps working normally, but the main window breaks. It used to break / hang completely, since I disabled hardware acceleration it "just" slows to a crawl where key input or mouse clicks takes 20-30 seconds to be registered.

    Also the same DISCORD_PROCESS_UTILS_GET_MEMORY_INFO messages in the terminal output.

    Same here. I used to believe that this is a memory leak, but not sure. Would be nice to get one of the devs comment on it?

    I finally found where to report a bug, on the top of the page just press "submit request" and then there you can report a bug. hope a bugreport gets some traction on this issue. the issue with the bugreport is that you only have a limited selection of what it applies to. as the bug happens to everything it's hard to correctly classify.

    I have the exact same problem, I'm using Arch Linux with bspwm. Closing and reopening Discord fixes the problem temporarily. I think it started happening about two months ago.

    for me discord-canary, the beta client works now, no more "crashes"

    I still have the same issue with the community/discord package, discord-canary and discord-canary-electron-bin from AUR on Manjaro i3wm. After a while discord slows to a crawl with

    Error occurred in handler for 'DISCORD_PROCESS_UTILS_GET_MEMORY_INFO': [Error: Failed to create memory dump]

    messages in console when running from command line.

    Bump. I'm running Xubuntu 20 and get a "crash/freeze"~ every hour and a half, very consistently. I'll launch it through command line next time to verify if I get the same error.

    yeah same, I still get it on the canary too, but not as often as the stable build.
