RE: Linux server hangs



Did you type sar during a period of bad performance?

Also to look at historical performance, just type sar without
Any parameters.

Dear Kurian Thayil.
 
This is through remote user consoles, like telnet, FTP & SSH from Clients like Windows XP, Fedora & SUSE OS,  our network is fine, on the other hand i have one NIS server with 50 users purely work on the Dump Terminals by logging into NIS server. that server is fast.
 
But this server behaves diffrently. if i run sar command the optput is fine with low values, i am suspecting with the SATA 250 GB Disk, this is because when compare to SCSI disk (Fast). any other way to debug this issue.
 
Thanks
Vishnu

Hi Vishnu,

Are you feeling the server hangs with the remote console (SSH/Telnet) or is it in the Server Console itself??? With my very little knowledge, the the I/O operations (utilizing the network) gets worse if the network isn't strong.

Regards,

Kurian Thayil.
