Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 54289
sluggish text mode mouse while running 32 client stress test
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:28 EDT
Description of Problem:
With Linux 7.1 installed on a PowerEdge 7150 system and 32-client stress
test, the text console mouse response is very slow. The response to a
command prompt is good. Also the performance of the processors when
running top is CPU0 99.8 % and CPU1 60 %.
Client connectivity is good; stress test from the 32 clients is running at
just about 2 days.
7.2 RC1 seems to have the same problem.
BIOS X18/frmwr x15
32x128MB (4 GB)
slot3 Ql2200 Moon/Haley (4 Hard Drive RAID0) OS installed.
slot6 Pro 100+ DP
slot7 Pro 100+
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RC1 (2.4.7-2 I think)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
mouse reacts quickly
Dell TeamTrack #DFCT39801, sev 2.
Text console mouse is done through a process (gpm) that is competing for
CPU time with everything else the system is doing. I do not think this
is a bug.
