huge slowdown after a couple of hours
Im a mythtv user, and new to linux, I thought myth would be a great way for me to learn linux. My question has to deal with my backend server for mythtv. I recently upgraded to newer hardware on my knoppmyth installation of mythtv. I went from an AMD 1800+ to a Intel p4 3ghz HT setup. Everything went great as knoppmyth re-reconized the hardware. My problem comes from after a couple of hours of use, i end up getting extremly high cpu usage.
Top reports this:
Cpu(s): 0.0% us, 0.1% sy, 0.0% ni, 0.0% id, 99.8% wa, 0.0% hi, 0.1% si
And it takes for ever for the sytem to do anything. I would like to not blow away the installation as i have a ton of shows recorded and a huge DB.
I can try to post any log files, and other informaiton for you guys. Thanks for you help.
