Thread: Opensuse 13.1 crazy high load on disks io

    Unhappy Opensuse 13.1 crazy high load on disks io

    On my system I get a crazy high load that stutter my system and sometime also it hung. For example if I copy a big file from a usb hdd to my internal hdd i get and average load of 6-7, if I dd from my hdd to a sd card i get an ever worst load. If my system swap I get a load of 10-11. As result my system is unusable as soon it start to do some io.
    I already changed my internal hdd with a new one so it is not a hdd issue.

    System:
    toshiba satellite pro l650
    4GB ram
    1TB toshiba hdd
    intel i5 first generation
    amd 6550m

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Doing some more test I see that on kernel-desktop i get the stutters/hang, but not in kernel-vanilla, with both a similar load so it could be some kernel patch. Atm of writing the load is 7.85 but the system is usable as expected.

    Is this a 32-bit system?

    I'm guessing that the difference is the use of PAE - the extensions that allow access to more than 3G of memory on a 32-bit system.
