maintenance and performance tuning?


besides updates of the programs and kernel and compiling a custom kernel, what do you do to optimize performance of your systems? i havent seen or heard of any type of defrags of the HDs. i usually just check top to see where my system resources are going.

i was just wondering what you guys out there were doing. thanks.

Don't forget to change the oil every 300 miles.

(I couldn't resist.)

Good question. I'll look forward to some tips from this thread too.

You don't have to defrag in linux. Also, get rid of any apps that you do not need to enhance performance.

Q: Why shouldn't I simply delete the stuff I never use, it's just taking up space?
A: This question is in the category of Famous Last Words..
(From the Frequently Unasked Questions)


You can adjust your GCC settings. In your /etc/profile:

export CXXFLAGS="-O2 -march=pentium4 -mcpu=pentium4"
export CPPFLAGS="-O2 -march=pentium4 -mcpu=pentium4"
export CFLAGS="-O2 -march=pentium4 -mcpu=pentium4"

replacing "pentium4" with your architecture. This could be "athlon-xp", "pentium1(2,3)", "K6(-2)" or if you want more generic "i386(486,etc)" There are others as well.
