unreasonable reponse instability (sparc?)
i'm still in hopes of finding reasons to absolutely love netbsd, even if
i can't code device drivers i can at least love it!
not much of a setup here, living at a group home and have an sun sultra
30 300Mhz 2MB L2 sparcv9 512MB machine that i tend to play with when i'm
not sleeping my life away! Enough with it, a couple issues having to do
- already noted once a few days, when under (mostly hd io as it would
seem) load by 'nice -n 20 tar -zxvf gnusrc.tgz' (or the equiavelent
which would make sense) commands seemed very unresponsive, such that
running 'ulimit' would take a few seconds and would then again the next
time! as if there where no command cache, maybe i'm crazy or maybe it's
sparc but has anyone else experienced this?
- this last time i had it installed (i swap alot of os's often,
comparing features, stability, load, response, etc.. nothing but time!)
i did a 'nice -n 20 ./configure' for some piece of software, don't
remember which, and while watching a ping set on 22.214.171.124 or somewhat,
it jumped all over, at least doubled quite often. tested repeatedly.
this could be sparc, or i could be crazy, but has anyone else noticed
anything such as this? i'm a big response/latency freak
i absolutely love (and hope to continue loving) netbsd, maybe someone
has experienced this and can confirm it or has an idea what i'm
