system freeze for few seconds when saving data on hardisk
I have following problem with my linux system (Ubuntu 9)
I installed VMware Player and using virtual machines.
Every time I start the machine it allocates virtual memory, so on OS level it creates a file (for 2GB RAM file has the same file).
While the file is created my system hangs for a while. It is very annoying and when I use the same on Windows XP ( I have dual boot config) there is no such problem.
Its quite often when I heavily use disk (write process for big files, for instance while copying big files).
Is there anything I can check/change so this will not happen ?
