I've just seen my highest load ever on my 486 linux box - 17.68 :-) I
had set updatedb set to run 3 times a week, but for some reason it
decided that it would launch itself ~35 times and really grind the disk.
After about an hour I noticed that the machine was reeeaaallllyy slow,
and the hard drive was still grinding. Doh!! I was using linuxconf, but
it's obviously not as foolproof as I'd hoped :-)
-- ============================================= It was quiet... too quiet. Then it was loud... too loud. Quiet again... too quiet. And once more, loud... way too loud. "Damn snooze button," I mumbled to myself as I got out of bed and checked the time: late... too late.
