Hi gurus, can you please hint as what parameters I have monitor to find the cause of sudden splashes of load of a FreeBSD 4.6.2-RELEASE server? This box is acting as a database/mysql server and periodically goes up to 400 of load average values and then gradually returns to a normal 4-5 value. The server is a dual Xeon with 4G phisical memory, mysql 4.0.7/linuxthreads. During the highest load, the amount of Inact memory remains of about 2G, and swap is used only minimally, so this cannot be the case. There are no messages in a system log or mysql log.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks is advance ---- Alexander Varshavchick, Metrocom Joint Stock Company Phone: (812)118-3322, 118-3115(fax) _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
