Server running so slow
We have an older Dell server with two Xeon 5310 processors and 24 GB of RAM.
The Server runs quickly under Windows Server 2008 and Solaris 10 X86_64 but as soon as we put Linux on it, it runs like it was a 486SX with 8 MB of RAM. I have been trying to figure out the problem, but every flavor of Linux is the same.
It is taking over 5 minutes to do a ls. It took over 5 days to install updates.
I can not seem to find an issue (no errors in the logs) and i am not a Linux wizard (just know enough to get myself into trouble).
Any help please...
