Hello, $ df -m ; date ; rm -r templates_c ; df -m ; date Filesystem 1M-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on /dev/da0s1a 989 45 864 5% / /dev/da0s1f 128631 102179 16160 86% /usr [...] Wed May 6 00:23:01 CEST 2009
Filesystem 1M-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on /dev/da0s1a 989 45 864 5% / /dev/da0s1f 128631 69844 48496 59% /usr Wed May 6 12:21:02 CEST 2009 -> it took about 12 hours to delete these 30GB of files and sub-directories (smarty cache files: many small files in many dirs). It's a little bit surprising, as it's on a recent HP proliant DL360 g5 with SAS disks (Raid1) running freebsd 6.x ( /dev/da0s1f on /usr (ufs, local, soft-updates) ) Surprisingly, cpu load remained quite low during the operation (apache stayed responsive). Is it a known problem on this kind of hardware or something related to the filesystem? Is there a way to improve this? Even on my $500 PC with IDE disks this goes quicker... :) I checked http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/configtuning-disk.html but I'm not sure if this would help in this case. Any suggestion how I can "fix" that?
