Hi, thank you so much for answering my questions! I really do feel better now and will continue sharing my computer for freenet, which I am convinced of, is a pretty much good invention!
> mentioned). Will your load decrease if you shut down Frost for an hour or > two? Load immediately decreases, when shutting down frost/freenet. After restarting, my current experience is this: A few minutes like 10 or 30 I have 10 to 20 connections, then it explodes to more than 30. This seems to consumes my load. Sometimes, like the log says, they decrease which I haven't monitored, yet, but do explode again suddenly. If I refuse to start frost, freenet is using cpu time that leads to load about 6 which is accepteable. So frost is the bad guy... As I have old and small harddisks, the amount freenet is capable to use is about 350 MBytes, so I hardly believe that this is the cause for my heavy load, but frost's communication, because there are only 2 up to 8 connections to my freenet port I have monitored ever. > > Btw, are you running the node properly nice:d? The java is at place one consuming 9x% of cpu time when watched by top. I haven't reniced it, because I think it consumes it's cpu time it needs, so if fiddling with it, I would loose contact, right? Would using a different freenet file system decrease cpu usage leading to less load? ...as the linuxbox should be capable to do other things, I am planning to build another one just for running freenet/frost, which costs more power/money, but increases my security and keeps my first linux-box useable. The linux box has an AMD-3D cpu at 300 MHz and the new box will have a similar one, when finished. Is there a floppy distribution which can do java to run freenet/frost? I'd like to save using a harddisk to run the second linux box, if possible. In the end, I am happy to have joined this mailing list. Thanx again for your fine help. I don't understand, why there is so less docs and, as far as I have noticed at the frost message board, there is lack of developers, too. Why is that? There is really an urgent need of a common and and a more technical FAQ... cheers, Sascha -- GNU Linux | The early bird who catches the worm works for someone who 2.4.19-cr | comes in late and owns the worm farm. -- Travis McGee on a | i586 | | | _______________________________________________ support mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://hawk.freenetproject.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/support
