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...
