    Default Zimbra Performance Issues

    Hi All,

    I have a problem with Zimbra really dragging on this machine. Most of this time it sits there dragging the cpu down with a lot of wasted cycles.

    Code:
    top - 16:10:17 up 1 day, 45 min,  2 users,  load average: 14.23, 14.61, 11.52
    Tasks: 193 total,   1 running, 192 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
    Cpu(s):  2.2%us,  1.7%sy,  0.0%ni,  0.0%id, 95.7%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.5%si,  0.0%st
    Mem:    510624k total,   505496k used,     5128k free,     2700k buffers
    Swap:  1048568k total,   557972k used,   490596k free,    53496k cached

    Any ideas where the issue may lie? The hard drive has over 60gig of space and performs fine with a dd test.

    This is Zimbra 5.0 Beta 2 running on CentOS 5.

    Thanks for any help.

    Cheers,

    Alan.

    This is a production machine with only 512MB or RAM? If so, that's way below the recommended amount.

    Hi Bill,

    I'd just noticed that and am busy stealing ram from another machine

    Cheers,

    Performance would also depend on how many user, type of HD (scsi, IDE , RAID etc.) and the more memory you give it the better it will run.

    Hi Bill,

    That was indeed the problem. Just a lot of caching to disk going on - with 2.5gig of ram it's performing well.

    Cheers,

    Alan.
