Thread: Set CPU Usage openSUSE 11

    Default Set CPU Usage openSUSE 11

    Hi, I've got openSUSE 11 running on my computer, and It's completely and succesfully set up to be a server, so that's what my question won't be about . I've got apache 2 running on my server, but when I visit my own pages, the process translating the php code to normal html code only uses 8% of my CPU, and will never get past that 8%. Is there any way I can say, go on and use like 50% of my CPU? I'm quite new to openSUSE and couldn't find anything using google, I hope you can help me

    You'll have to find out what's preventing your CPU from doing more work.
    More likely than not it's spending its time waiting for disk I/O, so one
    way of increasing CPU load would be to buy faster disks. Another one
    would be adding lots of RAM so more of the disk data would be cached.

    Hi, thanks for the reply, but the file I'm trying to write is about 20MB in size, so I don't think the disks are the problem. I've got about 400MB of RAM and the script I'm executing is not that big, so I'm not sure if that's the problem either. Are you sure you can't set a process its maximum cpu usage somewhere? Because the CPU used by the process never gets above exactly 8%.

    I don't quite follow you. What file are you trying to write when the
    web page is requested?

    Anyway, file size is not everything. There's also the cost of looking
    up the file in the directory, network overheads, etc. Generally speaking,
    if your CPU is less than 100% occupied, it's because it's waiting for
    something else.

    Pretty sure. I've been using Linux for about 15 yrs now and I never
    encountered such a thing. None of the processes I ever started had
    a problem maxing out at 100% CPU once all I/O obstacles had been
    moved out of the way.
