Could it lag the start up procedure?   

Postby wantmore » Fri Apr 23, 2010 4:53 am

Not saying its UMSPs fault, but I was messing with it at the time, so it seems like a place to start:

After a reboot, the machine was slow to come back up (EXT3), and the menu was totally frozen, couldn't telnet to the machine nor access the webserver.

Then after a minute or two the menu started to jerk, as if the machine had finally received an ir command from the remote.

And further after a few minutes it came back to health.

To me it felt like some other task had had 100% processor capacity, so everything else had to wait, and as that hypothetical task finished doing what it was doing control returned to the rest of the system.

Anybody else experience that?

To check the cpu load of each process use the "top" command from telnet.

Bit hard when you can't telnet to the unit ;)

But in the end I formatted the stick and placed fresh bin on it - and it seems to have gone away.

Damn that's a lot of processes running, no wonder its generally a bit sluggish.

Could you tell me the name of a linux command to terminate another process? :)
