Ok, it is now time to ask for help!! I have been experiencing a 10 second delay on using ssh (and rsh) to a host. m2 is on a private network behind m1 and so I've enabled rsh. But with both rsh and ssh I get the following (script below) where several times I get a sub 1 second real time to execute a command like date on the remote machine, but every 4th or 5th time this command is run I get a 10 second delay. (See the 4th one below.) It happens the same way with either ssh or rsh. I've tried with home both on a local disk and on a NFS mounted home and both act the same. All host names are in /etc/hosts. Does anyone have any help ??? --Phil m1$ while true ; do time ssh -x m2 date ; done Wed Feb 20 23:23:41 PST 2008 real 0m0.767s user 0m0.029s sys 0m0.000s Wed Feb 20 23:23:41 PST 2008 real 0m0.764s user 0m0.031s sys 0m0.000s Wed Feb 20 23:23:42 PST 2008 real 0m0.758s user 0m0.014s sys 0m0.015s Wed Feb 20 23:23:53 PST 2008 real 0m10.806s user 0m0.029s sys 0m0.000s Wed Feb 20 23:24:04 PST 2008 real 0m10.788s user 0m0.010s sys 0m0.019s Wed Feb 20 23:24:05 PST 2008 real 0m0.766s user 0m0.000s sys 0m0.029s Wed Feb 20 23:24:05 PST 2008 real 0m0.771s user 0m0.000s sys 0m0.029s Wed Feb 20 23:24:06 PST 2008 real 0m0.768s user 0m0.029s sys 0m0.000s -- Phil Nelson (phil at cs.wwu.edu) http://www.cs.wwu.edu/nelson NetBSD: http://www.NetBSD.org Coda: http://www.coda.cs.cmu.edu
