Performance SuSE 8.1 Pro HELP!!

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

 

I'm using SuSE 8.1 Pro on a 1GHz AMD machine w/ 512Mb of RAM. The machine has two disks, but the Linux one is an 80Gb, which is about 4% full.

 

Apps work fine once they've started (the machine doesn't hang or anything), but this takes AGES! Loading a Konqueror file manager window, for example, takes about 30 seconds. I have looked through startup logs and all my vonfig options, but I can't see anything amiss. There are no rogue / looping processes I don't think.

 

Any ideas? Anyone else had this?

Thanks!

 

BTW, I'm a newish Linux user. I went over from the ubiquitous W2KPro recently at home, but I still use Solaris at work.

PS > JUst ask for any screenshots etc, I can upload them....

I ran into a similar problem once, and as it turned out, had several instances of some programs running that I didn't really need. At a terminal type:

 

top [enter]

 

And see if there are any programs running that seem to be using more resources than they should. If so, you can then go to "services" and turn them off if you are certain they are not needed.
