I'm running Red Hat Linux 5.4 on HP DL580 server with 16 processors and 64 GB of RAM. I'm connecting to the server remotely through SSH. after entering the password, it takes time to return the command line, if I click ctrl+c during this time, I'll have the command line prompt but not the correct bash prompt (I have to run bash to pass to my correct prompt).
I tried to install Apache on the server, ./configure took 4 hours to finish instead of 1 or two minutes, Oracle installation same behavior.
Server Disks are mirrored using RAID controller.
any idea what could be the reason of this slowness?
I was checking the read speed on this server and it seems too slow 2.58 MB/sec:
[root@server ~]# hdparm -t /dev/cciss/c0d0p2
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2: Timing buffered disk reads: 8 MB in 3.11 seconds = 2.58 MB/sec HDIO_DRIVE_CMD(null) (wait for flush complete) failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device`
I have installed the RAID controller driver from HP website but didn't resolve the issue.
nothing wrong in .bashrc, and "source .bashrc" will run quickly (.bashrc is not executable to run ~/.bashrc !).
[user1@myserver ~]$ cat .bashrc c # .bashrc # Source global definitions if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then . /etc/bashrc fi # User specific aliases and functions
