Hm, Wonder Why This Server Is Slow?

| Comments

Wonder if the fact that I’m running this on a SPARC has anything to do with it. The crowd in #linux would definitely answer with a resounding yes. I am seriously toying with the idea of migrating this server to a Dual PIII/1.4Ghz box I have in the garage. I’d pop Ubuntu Dapper on there and decommission this SPARC. However, losing the Lights-Out management and stuff would seriously suck, as this is in a colo facility. Dunno. But I do know that this 5-minute load average graph means that I’m gonna have to act in the not-too-distant future…

Decisions, decisions. This SPARC has done well, but I think its time may have come… and gone.

/me awaits the flood of comments and flames.
