| Hello everyone! | | I just upgraded my home server frmo 4.9-R-p3 to 5.2.1-R after having a few | problems with modems and random hard lockups(?). | | Well, first off the upgrade didn't solve this and I can still reliably make | the box freeze with a new modem I bought which I hoped would cure the | problem... when infact it's 10x worse with that modem :o) Has anyone got | any ideas as to what could be causing this? The network card for the | internal side is an fxp card and the network card the modem is attached to | is an older 10megabit vx card (3com Etherlink III). | | I can't really think of any other information to provide right now but I | really would be grateful for some prompting of more info and a bit of help! | My last few emails to questions about the hard lock ups didn't get any | replies if I remember rightly :o) | | Aside from that, I just copied a 400 meg file over samba and it really did | seem incredibly slow compared to when it was running 4.9. It took agessssss | to untar the backup 1.5gig file too! Is there anything I am supposed to | tweak here? | I am thinking about just reinstalling 4.9 again but I would like to avoid | that if I can, as it would be alot of time wasted :o) I don't have any | numbers for this unfortuantly either, it just feels and seems a hell of | alot slower! For instance, when I was copying this file and tried to ssh in | from my windows machine it just sat there for ages doing (apparently) | nothing! | | Thanks! | Well I was just using bmon from ports to monitor the speed and copying a file to the box over samba is dramatically slower than copying from it: Copying a 1.5gig backup tar from the freebsd machine to my box is around 6-7 meg a second Copying a 600 odd meg file to the freebsd machine from my box is around only 1-2 meg a second! I do seem to remember having this kind of problem ages ago when I used Linux. Before installing 5.2.1 I did enable plug and play in BIOS (it hung with that turned on using 4.9, not with 5.2.1 though) so I will try disabling that either later or tomorrow morning to see if that fixes my issue! Could it be that which is causing it? Other than that I don't think I have had any major issues with the install yet :o) Well... except for it didn't solve my hard lockup problem like I hoped it would have. Seems like it isn't a hard disk performance drop though :o) | _______________________________________________ | [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list | http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions | To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
