One of my freebsd boxes has a huge load but it doenst show any cpu usage, it always shows ~70% idle.
Its a dual cpu intel xeon 2.4ghz with hyberthreading (freebsd shows 4cpus) uname -a FreeBSD gflux.tiora.net 5.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE #2: Thu Sep 18 16:20:28 PDT 2003 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/gflux i386 last pid: 2456; load averages: 9.66, 12.08, 14.41 up 17+16:43:08 15:04:30 217 processes: 11 running, 205 sleeping, 1 zombie CPU states: 9.5% user, 4.3% nice, 15.1% system, 0.8% interrupt, 70.3% idle Mem: 333M Active, 289M Inact, 224M Wired, 46M Cache, 111M Buf, 93M Free Swap: 512M Total, 59M Used, 453M Free, 11% Inuse Im aware the server is highly busy, and its always very fast. I just dont understand why it always says there is always 70% idle cpu time? iostat says the same thing. I can do a make -j 12 world, and it still shows 70% idle cpu time. Any thoughts? thanks, liam _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
