mattmattehCPrgmSwR2, i know apps like ff and oo load slow. but fast the second time (thats on a p3 800, 512 MB)
CPrgmSwR2those are the main two
Its never fast the second time
mattmattehCPrgmSwR2, what cpu ?
CPrgmSwR2Athlon XP 2600+
james541puddingpimp_work, depending on what flags you are using for hdparm, you might be seeing cached disk rewads which don't actually read from the platters, resulting in numbers around 700
mattmattehCPrgmSwR2, any other apps running (top)
CPrgmSwR2konsole
james541normally it is around 900 though
CPrgmSwR2it almost loads instantly
puddingpimp_workjames541, but 700MB/s is impossible over UDMA133, it must not be even leaving the kernel?
mattmattehpuddingpimp_work, what is the fastest over udma133 ?
CPrgmSwR2I mess read you question mattmettah
james541I am not sure of the exact circuitry but I think there may be a connection between the cache in the HDD and main memory
hydrogenomg
bug in dd!
0 bytes (0 B) copied, 1.2568e-05 s, 0.0 kB/s
mattmattehpuddingpimp_work, i saw a high number on another box and thought it was a bit too much
CPrgmSwR2I have mysql and apache running
james541hitting wikipedia...
mattmattehCPrgmSwR2, cpu or ram hogs ?
hydrogenI think..
grknightVegeeta, one moment.. i need some firewall config
puddingpimp_workmattmatteh, my thinking would be 133,maybe 266?
Vegeetak
mattmattehpuddingpimp_work, i was guessing the same. might have to google
richiefrichdotdotdot: no i need to emerge samba on the client side .. iirc
CPrgmSwR2I have a 133 ATA harddrive
james541it is because of DMA
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_memory_access
the read isn't even performed by the kernel
so the system call overhead is reduced
making it much faster
VXWorksI installed ipw3945 driver and wpa_supplicant, am I able to connect to a network run WPA-PSK ?
CPrgmSwR2I have 0% swap space used
so memory is not my problem
james541strange UDMA mode 5 is only 100MB/s
mattmattehCPrgmSwR2, perhaps post and search the forums ? and send me the link so i can follow ?
grknightVegeeta, try to get that
Vegeetaokay.
