Subject: [gentoo-user] system lag with gentoo-sources-2.6.35-r2

1 Hello,
3 I am having some system performance issues with this kernel release. I have
4 a SMP machine (dual xeon nehalem 8 core / 16 threads) with 24gb non-ecc
5 memory.
7 On occasion (seems random so far) my system feels like a Pentium II trying
8 to cope with Vista. For example, I was in the middle of tar'ing a semi-large
9 file and noticed all of my apps came to a crawl. Scrolling in firefox,
10 typing in the terminal, or trying to navigate in my file manager resulted in
11 breif "pauses" that came in waves. On one occasion my system froze
12 completely and I had to manually reset the machine. (that was with
13 2.6.35-r1)
15 I didn't activate anything "new" in this kernel release that I don't
16 normally activate. ie, no cpuidle driver
18 Is there a proper venu for debugging such matters, or should I just wait for
19 this kernel to go prime-time?
21 Thanks for your time,
22 Alan
