We have a php+mysql web server. It serves 15-20 http requests per second, resulting in 100-200 sql qps. But according to vmstat(1), it all peaks at over 500k syscall/s and 100k cswitch/s. The peaks are quite frequent, even at this load. During the peaks top(1) shows 30-40k VCSW for mysql and around 1k vcsw for two php-cgi worker processes. IVCSW is relatively very low for all processes.
This is a 4-core Opteron HP DL145 G2 server running 6.2/amd64 generic+quota. I'm considering a switch to 7.0. During peaks user/system/idle in top(1) is 20/30/50. The question is - is the syscall and csw rates normal or should I be trying to tune mysql and php more agressively? I'm not hungry for performance (haven't hit the limit yet), but a couple of days ago the server stopped responding until a cold reboot (which is another story) - and now I'm paying closer attention to its vitals. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
