Description David Carlson 2005-09-27 04:28:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.0.6-1.2.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
I was getting an overly excessive amount (about 10% saturation of a wireless link) of traffic on an NFS client that was NFS file system statistic requests (found from ethereal).  After a hunch, I unchecked the 'Harddisk' component of the gnome-system-monitor applet, and all of the traffic stopped.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Mount an NFS filesystem somewhere (sync or async, tcp or udp doesn't matter)
2.  Select 'Harddisk' on gnome-system-monitor
3.  Watch link activity

Actual Results:  The link activity was fairly high (not enough to saturate the link but enough to stress it) - I sniffed with ethereal and found NFS requests

Expected Results:  gnome-system-monitor should ignore network volumes by default, or give the option of doing so.

This bug/feature really needs to be fixed upstream.
