fc8 runs too slow sometimes

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I am running a fc8 machine and things were going just fine until about a week ago. Then, my machine started slowing down, almost to a crawl. This is happening intermittently, but sometimes it lasts for 2 days. This makes the scientists hindered and they are getting frustrated that I can't figure it out. Here is a brief show of some of the processes. Are these zombie processes?
vwong 31766 1 0 08:07 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/dbus-launch
--exit-with-session /usr/bin/startkde
vwong 31767 1 0 08:07 ? 00:00:00 /bin/dbus-daemon --fork
--print-pid 4 --print-address 6 --session
vwong 31788 1 0 08:07 ? 00:00:00
vwong 31791 1 0 08:07 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/gpg-agent -s
vwong    31795     1  0 08:07 ?        00:00:12 /usr/bin/pulseaudio -D

The machine was just rebooted two days ago. If these are zombie processes, I can reboot again, but does this mean I have to reboot every two days? Is there a program that sucks up the cpu time? Sendmail is running on this machine when it doesn't
need to and he is using kde.  Please, can anyone out there help?
Many thanks in advance,
