Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 67438
Load Average too high
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:43:38 EDT
Description of Problem:
Have moved mrtg program from a Slackware 8.0 Pentium 3 500 Mhz
machine to a Redhat 7.3 Dual Pentium 3 1.13 Ghz Dell Server. The load average on the machine has
increased from 16 - 20 on the slackware machine to over 40 on the Redhat machine and keep climbing.
Have had to reformat the machine now to Slakware due to machine load required fixing. Logged a
fault with the Web Interface and was told to log a bugzilla instead. I didnt have the time to wait and
produce the bugzilla log.
Version-Release number of selected component (if
using mrtg 2.9.17 and 2.9.18 and perl 5.6.1 libraries. The Redhat had all
errate applied on the 21/6/2002 including the 2.4.18-4 kernel for SMP.
Running 10 x mrtg processes with approx 50 - 60 cfg files and approx 40 targets
per script. every 5 minutes
Steps to Reproduce:
average continues to increase past 50.
Back on the Slackware SMP
kernel 2.4.18 the Load average running exactly the same config is between 2 and 4.
Cannot reproduce the exact fault at the minute due to machine required for use
immiediatly. Am hoping this helps others.
