OpenSUSE :: 11.4 Slow In Terms Of Speed / Performance

Jun 30, 2011

I'm new to openSUSE and my computer is quite slow although my computer isn't that bad. I opened up ksysguard and it appears that my CPU is the bottleneck. My CPU usage is usually 100%, then after a few seconds, it goes down to 20-60% and then it goes back up to 100% after another few seconds. It says I have 141 processes running (I don't know if that's normal or not).

My Specs are:
CPU: AMD Duron (tm) processor 1.8GHz
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6200
Memory: 2GB RAM
I'm using KDE.

Server :: Very Slow Raid Performance / Only Write Speed

Jan 5, 2011

I have recently migrated my file server over to a HP Microserver. The server has two 1TB disks, in a software RAID-1 array, using MDADM. When I migrated simply moved the mirrored disks over, from the old server Ubuntu 9.10 (server) to the new one 10.04.1 (server).I Have recently noticed that write speed to the RAID array is *VERY* slow. In the order of 1-2MB/s order of magnitude (more info below). Now obviously this is not optimal performance to say the least. I have checked a few things, CPU utilisation is not abnormal (<5%) nor is memory / swap. When I took a disk out and rebuilt the array, with only one disk (tried both) performance was as to be expected (write speed >~70MB/s) The read speed seems to be unaffected however!

I'm tempted to think that there is something funny going on with the storage subsystem, as copying from the single disk to the array is slower than creating a file from /dev/zero to the array using DD..Either way I can't try the array in another computer right now, so I though I was ask to see if people have seen anything like this!At the moment I'm not sure if it is something strange to do with having simply chucked the mirrored array into the new server, perhaps a different version of MDADM? I'm wondering if it's worth backing up and starting from scratch! Anyhow this has really got me scratching my head, and its a bit of a pain! Any help here would be awesome, e-cookies at the ready! Cheers

Ubuntu :: Ondemand Vs Performance - Increases The Clock Speed To Performance When The CPU Is Under Load

Jul 31, 2010

I just wanted to know if having my laptop set to ondemand, will this affect performance in any way? I realize it increases the clock speed to performance when the CPU is under load, but does the time it take to go from ondemand to performance affect speed? Will there be any noticeable difference between the two setups? I have a dual core intel at 2.2GHz when in performance. When ondemand is set with no load it downclocks to 800Mhz.

OpenSUSE :: Overall Slow Performance Of 11.2?

Dec 22, 2009

First of all, apologies if this is not the correct place to post this. I recently installed openSUSE 11.2 (Gnome, 32bit) on my newish PC. It is an Acer Aspire X3200 (AMD Phenom X4 Quad-Core, 1.8 GHz, 4096 MB, NVIDIA GeForce 8200 Integrated, can provide detailed specifications if needed). I've to say I am very disappointed with the results so far! Sorry to say this but I'm having a whole load of problems that I never had when I had Vista or with current Win 7. Here are the issues:

1. Slow network performance. I've disabled ipv6 but it is still the same. Not only when I use Firefox, it is also slow when I use console based programs. 2. Instability - Gnome system monitor crashed 6 (or more) out of 10 times I use it. System Monitor users more CPU resources than anything else! Also when I started the PC this morning, I only had the desktop wallpaper. No icons, no taskbar, no mouse movements or menus, nothing. I had to force shut down it after a while. I'm sure we all are familiar with this on XP but I've never seen something like that on Linux!

3. Annoying noise coming every time I move mouse (mainly when scrolling) and even if I'm not doing anything. I suspect it is coming from my HDD indicator as it always blink even when nothing is running. This can't be a hardware issue as I've never had this on Vista or Win 7 (it is virtually silent on Vista and XP but not on SuSE) This noise is driving me totally mad.

4. Slow performance in general. No matter what I do, even typing this on this text window, it seems everything is running so slow. I never had this problem when I was running 10.x on my 6 year old PC. CPU is always running around 20%-30%, when I don't run any other applications but just Firefox (I have Foxclocks, Delicious and FEBE as add-ons and I don't have any problem using them on Vista or Win 7). I am using Compiz, not sure if this has got anything to do with that.

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 - OpenOffice Slow Performance (Need More Memory)

Oct 1, 2010

Ever since 11.3 Open Office was performing "badly" to say the least. It loaded slow, with a few documents open "save-as" and selecting a different folder took up to a minute and so on. Anyway I had the suspicion that there maybe not enough memory allocated. Nothing within the OO settings worked.

Then I looked into yast=>/etc/sysconfig=>System=>Limits...
found "HARDLOCKLIMIT" set to "@256"
changed to "@512"......OK finished.

Ran a test with 10 documents open
a) Startup was much faster
b) Saveas instantly
c) PDF instantly
d) Selecting new folder instantly
Preliminary conclusion : Java(sun) and OO needs more memory

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Slow USB Transfer Speed ?

Feb 1, 2011

I'm trying to transfer some files to my USB stick, and it's transferring at the most pitiful rate, around 200-400kb/s, occasionally shooting up to 1MB/s, but not for more than a few seconds.

I realize a lot of factors can play into this, so I'll try to provide as much detail as I can.

I'm using OpenSUSE 11.3, KDE 4.6 RC2, and a Corsair Mini Voyager 16GB. My motherboard is a Gigabyte EP45-DS3L.

dmesg output:


lsusb -t output:


Sometimes too, the transfer just stops all together. It just... doesn't transfer for a while, then it'll go back to 400kb/s etc, then it'll stop again for a minute.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Slow Performance With Mutexes And MySql On Multi Core CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965 - With 11.3

Nov 11, 2010

I have installed OpenSuse 11.3 32 Bit in a virtual machine on an older computer on a Windows XP host and on a new computer with AMD Phenom II X4 965 processor.

With sysbench I tested the performance of mutex and on the new computer it is 3 - 4 times slower than on the virtual machine. Other performance tests with sysbench for CPU, memory and threads are faster on new computer like expected. I tested this, because I have a slower performance of table creation in MySql tested with sql-bench, where creation of 10000 tables lasts 45 seconds on the virtual machine but over 400 seconds on the new computer.

I have tested with kernel-desktop and kernel-default but there are not large differences. File creation was tested with bonnie++ and is on newer computer faster as expected.

My questions are:
- Why is the mutex handling on the multi core CPU slower than in the virtual machine and how to speed up this?
- Or is there another reason why table creation of MySql is so much slower on multi core CPU?

OpenSUSE Install :: Network Speed Slow In OpenSUSE 11.3?

Sep 10, 2010

Does anyone know how to revert network speeds to those attained with openSUSE11.2-64? On openSUSE11.2-64 the reported network download speed was,

max : 420 kB/s
ave : ~ 200 kB/s

After upgrade to openSUSE 11.3-64 the figures dropped to about 25% of the previous values. After upgrade to KDE 4.5 and plasmoid-networkmanagement the initial values did not change but the average value dropped after about 30 seconds to ~ 15 kB/s. Approach so far:

1. The motherboard's (A780GM-LE) build in LAN (Realtek RLT8111DL) was originally detected by openSUSE 11.3 as the Realtek RLT8169 and kernel module r8169 installed. This was replaced by the latest module r8168-8.019.00 from Realtek.

2. After kernel update to Linux x86_64 the plasmoid-networkmanagement was replace by NetworkManager-kde4. This improved flow with,

max : 140 kB/s
ave : ~ 80 kB/s

OpenSUSE Install :: Slow Startup After Login / Speed It Up?

Nov 1, 2010

What can I do to speed up the start-up after login?

I am running OpenSuse 11.3 with Gnome on my laptop (Acer Travelmate 2490) and I need about two and a half minutes from login until the hard disk lamp 'settles down'. This is much longer than I have been used to expect from earlier OpenSus versions. Are there some default applications/processes I could ditch?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.3 - Recorded Sound Slow Speed

Sep 6, 2010

I have recently installed OpenSUSE 11.3. I can play audio files, but there is a problem recording, namely the recording is way too slow. This was tried 3 ways: in Audacity, in Skype (making a test call), and using the arecord command in a console, as root. To make the playback sound normal, I tried taking the already-recorded file and speeding it up in Audacity. It was necessary to speed up the recording by 50%. I've tried updating alsa and other suggestions which I could figure out, and run the scripts for diagnostic information. BTW, I'm using a headset plugged in to standard 1/8 inch mic and speaker jacks, not a USB headset.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Best NVIDIA Driver For Quadro2 Pro - Slow Performance On Browser Display Video

Jan 27, 2011

I went back to Suse 11.2, it comes with the 'nv' driver for my NVIDIA Quadro2 Pro (64 MB) and I'm getting some slow performance on browser display and sometimes video playing. Not always, I recently saw a 2 hr long movie on Blue Ray resolution, so the problem is not hardware, it's software. I saw several links here on how to install other drivers and a 1-click install link on this page but my question is, since this is an old card... which driver is the best for this card ?

General :: Can A Ramdrive Be Used To Speed Up Performance

Feb 1, 2011

I have recently upgraded to a M4A77TD motherboard and 8Gig of memory.I have a AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 645 Processor, and I cant say that I see much improvement over the one that died. I have noticed that the HDD light is constantly flashing so I wondered if I couldnt use some of the Ram to create a ramdrive to speed things up . So question ... what should I put on my ramdrive? My own thoughts were the var and usr directories. I would load the ramdrive at startup (which would slow down my startup) And Rsync back again on shutdown.Has anyone done this? Ive had a look through the forum but cant see anything ..but my search terms may not be all that good.

suse linux 11.1 64 bit
var=0.3G usr=5M lib=0.2G opt=0.6G sys=0.6G
As far as I can see swop is never used

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Get LMMS More Performance Speed

Nov 24, 2010

I have A dell vostro v13. I am have installed LMMS which runs ok if I put minimal demands on it but if I start putting to many demands on it like running More then three Zynaddsubfx plugins or multiple sample players the cpu moniter goes into the red and it starts to sound bad and slow down a great deal. I know a small laptop is probably not the best choice to run a DAW on unless it has a good processor but this is the only computer I currently have and I really like LMMS. Is there any way I can get more performance out of my computer? I looked a little into overclocking but dell Bios Does not allow for this. Is there any tricks that I can do to get LMMS to perform better given the limitations of my system?

Ubuntu :: System Requirements For 10.04 - Speed Up Performance?

Mar 6, 2011

I have an older PC running Ubuntu 10.04, and the system is slow, especially with Firefox running. I recently upgraded to 2 gig memory, but it didn't help. I have plenty of space on my hard-drive, using only 30 gig of 80 gig. My CPU is Intel Celeron 2.40GHz. I have broadband, and the speed seems good. What are the system requirements for Ubuntu 10.04? Any tips for speeding performance, esp on Firefox? I used to do a defrag when I had Windows; is there any need to do that on Ubuntu also?

Fedora :: Slow Performance After A Power Outage

Aug 7, 2010

My computer is running really slow after a power outage. It was fine, then the power went out. Now it's *unabably* slow. The OS takes a long time to load, the simple calculator takes a few minutes to show up, Firefox doesn't even load at all before I give up. And it won't shut down normally. I have to use the power button.

So did the power outage fry somthing on my PC. Do I have ot replace RAM or the processor? Or is it a software issue? Do I have to do something as drastic as a reimage?

Ubuntu :: Extremely Slow Swap Performance

Jun 24, 2010

I'm getting horrible (unusable) performance every time swap is accessed. This was compounded by the GEMS leak and a few other memory leaks, but now under normal non-leaky memory usage swapping is still intolerable. For instance swapping out ~300mb when I opened a new program with RAM full resulted in the system nearly freezing up for about 3-5 minutes (however long it took to brew a cup of coffee and come back to the system just finally unfreezing).

Debian Configuration :: Seeing Slow Network Performance With Large Mtu?

Apr 22, 2010

I have 2 ASUS Boxes (one with 8GB, one with 4GB) When both mtus are set at 7200, using scp to copy a 56MB file takes 2:06. If I reduce either mtu to 1500, the speed is 2 seconds. I'm wondering if this is some kind of kernel bug or driver bug or what. For the moment, I've lowered the mtu to 1500 to get the performance out of the machines, but find it interesting that what should make it faster is actually slowing down. Where should I post this to get it looked at? Is anyone else seeing it.I see a similar performance issue with smbclient too.

Ubuntu :: Very Slow Evolution Performance With POP3 Account

Apr 11, 2010

I first seriously tried to switch to Ubuntu. I now find myself very rarely booting into Windows XP, and all the apps I need to use have free replacements.However, after porting about 15-20 years worth of email from Outlook (via Thunderbird) into Evolution, I'm finding Evo's performance has gone down the toilet.It was snappy to start with, but over time has got slower. I regularly get long waits as it displays notes that it is retrieving message number <whatever>.

I'm using POP3/SMTP for most email (I've a low-usage IMAP account with too), but it seems like some sort of issue where I'd want to optimise or "defragment" my local mail store.Has anyone any ideas or suggestions on this?My ~/.evolution/mail folder contains about 2.5Gb if that's any help.This is with 9.10 Ubuntu; I have done some basic tuning on the setup, but not a lot.
