I have freshly installed an Ubuntu 10.04.1 by internet.
All is running well, but my nice values are all set to 0. Is there a script that handles these at boot time? How can I reset them to "appropriate" or "normal" levels (e.g. not all at 0)? I know in other installs, my nice levels vary depending on the process and the user.
Attached is a screen shot of my gnome-system-monitor, and aside from init, which I had set to -15, all others are at 0.
Linux AMD-LNX000 2.6.32-25-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Fri Sep 17 20:05:27 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I understand 0 is a default nice level; however, I have not encountered a Linux system where all processes have a 0 nice level. I frequently see daemons at -5, or something, and other root services at -15.
Obviously, this posting is more related to performance than it is an actual problem.
If you have suggestions, I welcome them. Perhaps, I should work with SysV and chkconfig and check other Linux systems to see how they perform.
I am going to run the "Live CD" portion of this Ubuntu installation. This should be a good example to what the nice levels should be per each process. Of course, this will not determine special programs added to the install.
Does anyone know an in-system command to print out processes and their priorities to stdout?
