Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

My server is running very slow, and I cannot figure out why? The server has been running fine for a few months, and now it is running really slow, to a point I am getting time-outs by requesting a simple web page from Apache, and I am the only person connected to the website.
With a whopping 1.4% system usage, I'm wondering if it's process related at all. Have you checked your network connection? Maybe it's completely in the bandwidth -- "That's when I realized that it's not in the box, it's in the band." ;-)
From that info I can't see anything that would
explain why it's slow...
Two things, though:
1. if it's a web-server, why bother it with Gnome
and/or X at all? Just eats valuable RAM... and as
you're running webmin anyway, you probably don't
need "other graphical conifguration gimmicks".
2. why are you running two instances of webmin?
I don't know why there are two instances of webmin, good question. I am assuming that since my system is sooo sloooow, I got a timeout with one of the webmin sessions and the system started a new instance?? But thats just a stab in the dark. Buy the way, webmin is very sloooow as well, so the problem points to a bandwidth issue.
How would I check if the bandwidth is the issue? I have a 3COM switch, but it does not show the bandwidth usage.
As a side note: I am thinking of rebuilding the server, this time use my second old box for development, and the server would have a minimal install. But that is down the road, got to get this one going first.
