Shakedown! – Update

Well, so far the system is holding up just fine. The a ps -aux | less reveals ALOT of processes, and also showed me some mount.smbfs processes that need to be killed. Alas the problems of hacking your way into local device support on LTSP. At anyrate, the server is doing just fine. We only have 2 Gigs of RAM, so we are starting to enter swap with EVERYONE using a terminal and each terminal accessing OO.o and probably several other programs. I’d say we’re doing okay at the moment…but I am sure that we need to go to 4 gigs this summer. What fun. <img src="http://aidan.strateia.org/templates/default/img/emoticons/smile.png&quot; alt=":)" style="display: inline; vertical-align: bottom;" class="emoticon" /> The CPU load isn’t a problem, and will be even less of one after I kill those mount processes. I just need to umount those mounted directories. Should take care of things. <br />
<br />
I also think that this gives me some good information on whether or not to switch to Xfce as default this summer. I plan to give the system a very close once over after this class is over. There is another one later today, and I need to make sure the system is ready for that. I love my job. <br />

edit– Oh, and Kudos to <a href="http://aidan.strateia.org/exit.php?url_id=51&amp;entry_id=98&quot; title="http://pngdiscovery.blogspot.com/&quot; onmouseover="window.status=’http://pngdiscovery.blogspot.com/&#8217;;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">Corey</a> who is a great help in the Computer Center. He actually writes down what he does and as a result I have a much easier time maintaining things.
