If you're going to do that, do it in the right way. Disable the scripts
in /etc/periodic.conf. Read the man pages.
i have a couple virtual machines running freebsd 6.1-;4 on a ms vs2005
host, and as of the moment of this writing (and for a while now
actually), they are idling at near 0% utilization. but during the
nights, they really get going to the point that they ramp the cpu fan
speeds to max on the my host box! it takes them hours and hours to
quiet back down, sometimes not until i power the virtual machines off
and back on again.
im wondering if the cause of these early hours cpu hogging could be
coming from items running from periodic? i think the daily folder is
probably the culprit. is there a good way to see which all scripts are
being run, what their scheduling and priority is? i would like to cull
out as many as i could live without (if possible).
