Thread: OpenSuse super laggy all of a sudden

  1. #1

    Default OpenSuse super laggy all of a sudden

    Hey guys, I apologize for posting this in the Install/Boot/Login forum, but I couldn't figure out where to post this.

    Anyways my question is that all of a sudden my opensuse has become very laggy. Everything loads up very slowly and then it takes a while for it to respond to my commands. However, when I boot up in FAILSAFE mode then everything runs beautifully. It boots up fast, all my programs load up fast, and everything is super responsive. Any idea as to what may of caused this and as to how I can fix it? Oh, I am dual booting Win 7 Home, and I also have the 64-bit edition of OpenSuse, btw.

    Thanks,

    Avi

    What does 'top' show from the command line? Which application(s) is/are
    on top all of the time when watching the CPU (default sort has high
    CPU-users on top)?

    Good luck.

    I wasn't quite sure what to look for so I typed top on my konsole and took a screen shot:

    Was it laggy at the time? Nothing looks too odd in there. I have no idea
    what some of the processes are but I presume that's because of my relative
    lack of KDE knowledge (keysguard, keysguardd, kwin) and none of those are
    taking much processing time, but nothing is really showing up here. Does
    the 'uptime' command show anything useful? You can just paste its output
    in here since there is only one line.

    When did this start? Did you install something around that time? If you
    did install something by RPM you could check the history seeing RPMs
    installed (in reverse order) using the following command (piped to 'less'
    for simplicity):

    rpm -qa --last | less

    Good luck.

    uptime just says

    18:13pm up 0:05, 4 users, load average: 0.80, 0.64, 0.30

    it wasn't super laggy, but it was laggy. I installed a few updates through the updater applet if perhaps that could be causing it? This has been going on for about the last 4-5 days now

    I suspect npviewer.bin. It's used by firefox to display media (flash, I think). It can hog X (which is going at 40%+).

    Usually exiting firefox solves it. Updating firefox is a good idea too.

    If running KDE, the OP could install the system monitor applet, that shows CPU usage in the panel. This way s/he could see when the CPU is running full and check top to see the what's the gluttony application.

    but when running in FAILSAFE mode, even when using firefox, everything runs as smooth as a baby's bottom
