Very slow performance with RH8.0
 
I have installed 8.0 on PIII and the system became really slow when running anything on it...Such as I have wait second when I open terminal window..Seems like something slows down the whole system...any Idea..I am very new to RedHat...

Open a terminal and run
top
It's a program that shows most processor and memory consuming programs. Please copy the list and paste it to the forum.

But I suspect the graphic card and driver...Because looks to me there is a lot of CPU idle time and the system is still slow...

It may be nautilus... But it may be a problem with a slow video driver. What card do you have?

cihans 02-05-2003 10:03 AM

What is nautilus?
It has an embedded VDA...the box is HP Vectra VE PIII...not sure what comes with this model...

cihans 02-05-2003 10:13 AM

Here is the TOP output...X eatsto much CPU...

Nautilus is a nice looking file manager. The only problem is that it requires much RAM..

Noerr 02-07-2003 03:23 AM

you are definetely missing some more RAM, with 64Megs RH8 will be butt slow

fsbooks 02-07-2003 07:23 AM

In other words, what is swap doing?

swapon -s

Or monitor swap usage with top or better yet (faster update, graphical view), xosview, which is available as source:

http://xosview.sourceforge.net/

or RPM

ftp://speakeasy.rpmfind.net/linux/re...8.0-8.i386.rpm

cihans 02-08-2003 01:44 AM

That was definetly RAM....I realized that very late...and increased it to 256M..and now it is eating all the memory but much much faster.....very reasonable speed....
