Hi Mark and list members, I am experiencing the same problem on my dual PII-450 SP700 Compaq Pro workstation. After poking around on Google, it is pointing to the FreeBSD and a i8254 programmable interupt timer. In my case the time is lagging behind 10 times! What does your: #time sleep 10 show?

Hi Mark, Ok, I have recompiled my kernel and excluded the support for SMP and ACPI. All my weird problems with slow time have disappeared. The kernel time stays dead on along with the ntpd. The uptime shows the correct amount of days. It was funny to see after 3 days that the machine had been up

Hi Mark! Gee, who would have thought that it was the keyboard. Thanks for your ideas. I recompiled the kernel (Compaq SP700 dual PII-450) following the NOTES guidelines and your email, with these enabled: # To make an SMP kernel, the next two are needed options SMP #

Mark, No clue from sysctl -a. Yes, I've looked through archives and google. Since I don't see a lot of performance improvement from using the second CPU, I will leave this issue alone for now. Hopefully, someone will post a sweet solution to this bugging issue. Thanks for your help, Denis

re: squid and it's config, a question

Bob, Since it is a gateway/proxy/firewall, you will be running some firewall rules. Use 'netstat -a' command, and check which ports are in Listen stage. Or use 'lsof | grep Listen' command. After that you will need to add a firewall rule to _not_ allow incoming connections to the Squid's

Luke, I know that would be coincidental, but you know what your running CPU temp is (check your BIOS)? OS freeze-ups sometimes occur due to inadequate cooling of the CPU. Also maybe your computer is close to a heat source? Are you using the same computer case? What is your power supply rated at?

Luke, Your temps are fine. Go to the hard drive manufacturer's web site and download a drive check utility. Once you run it, it will either say okay or spit out an error code that you can use to RMA your hard drive. If a hard drive locks up, you should still see errors on stdout, however nothing

Check the DJBDNS author's site: The instructions are simple. If there is a lot of name resolutions happening on the web server itself, install dnscache on the localhost. My advice to you is to avoid BIND. It is too complicated for your needs. Regards! At 05:50 PM

Re: Bind as a chaching nameserver

2006-04-26 Thread Denis R. Richard, besides simple you want a _secure_ caching name server. Yes, you can type named_enable in rc.conf and be done with it, just don't forget to periodically check the security updates web page for BIND exploits. Regards! Richard Collyer wrote: Hello,
