Cpu usage


#1

Hi, it’s me again.
I’d like to know if my problems are due to the cpu usage by someone else, so I’m posting my ‘w’ and ‘top’ stats. What do you think? If your server is fast, could you please post yours?
btw. I’m on ‘mug’.

w:
10:08:31 up 3 days, 4:40, 8 users, load average: 7.76, 8.52, 7.35

top:
top - 10:09:06 up 3 days, 4:41, 8 users, load average: 7.15, 8.25, 7.30
Tasks: 3 total, 1 running, 2 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 47.0% user, 21.3% system, 0.0% nice, 31.7% idle

lol I just noticed now that the first line of top is the same as w :slight_smile:

What you’re showing isn’t too far out of line for a reasonably busy dual core server. The load averages are high but you’ve got 31% idle so it’s not really too bad. I don’t think DH would take action on that.

Others may have other things to compare. (Remember to compare the same number of CPUs.)

Wholly - IS NOT MY PROMO CODE. Even worse, I don’t get any credit for it. Use WhollyMindless for full credit. I’m really disappointed in someone.

Thats really not that bad as mentioned. If this is a dual/dual core then you still really shouldn’t notice much with that kind of load. I have been seeing Sprite lately as low as 0.9 etc. Nice to see :slight_smile:

The load on my server (‘bixel’) varies quite a bit, depending on when I check it, but it rarely goes very high and the speed is generally very good.

At the moment it is showing…
[color=#0000CC]
top - 05:37:16 up 4 days, 4:26, 3 users, load average: 3.15, 3.31, 3.23

Cpu(s): 23.8% user, 19.0% system, 0.0% nice, 57.3% idle
