We have a code build server, fedora 13, which was working at medium speed for 4 users. Speed means building a code branch took 1.5 hrs max duration. It was having one quad core, 8gb ram, 200gb hdd.
To increase the performance as well as the number of users to 8, its hw config is increased to 8 cores, 47gb ram, 2tb hdd. But now even when a single user is using the server it is very slow, it takes > 7hrs to build a code.
For increase in hw it is supposed to be faster. What can make it slow? If I reduce the swappiness 'll it help? Or a reinstallation of os isneeded?
Please help. New to linux server.
