too much disk activity
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 25, 2008
All this evening, which is basically the first time I've used this machine since yesterday's update, I've been getting an unusual amount of hard disk activity, even when no programs are running, or when a program is relatively idle. I've tried to figure out what's causing this, but the System Monitor hasn't been much help here.
On a similar note, sometime about a week or two ago, I started having trouble with shutdowns, where it takes very long to shut down. Again, I'm at a bit of a loss in how to track down the problem.
As a side question, I've been using the beta of Hardy...is there some process I need to go through to upgrade to the "official" release? Or was that what those 98 updates I had yesterday were for?

Linux using way too much RAM
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 11, 2010
I use ubuntu 10.04 64bit and my server config is:
Core2Quad Q9400 2.4GHz, 8GB RAM
Ubuntu is using almost 100% of server's RAM and I really don't know why.
When I run "top" command I get this:

MariaDB/MySQL uses too much RAM
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 22, 2013
I have migrated my debian server from squeeze to wheezy and mysql to mariadb. The problem is that mysql starts eating up all my RAM and I am not able to run other programs (another app in NodeJS is killed for instance).
I have several services using mysql on it but I am not sure it's even this.
I have tried stopping all other services on the server (apache, varnish, node, prosody, etc.) to be sure it's not used by something else and relaunching mysql
Ubuntu 11.04. How much disk space does it take up once it's installed?

Why does Vista / 7 takes up so much disk space?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 30, 2012
There's something I would like to understand, guys.
I find it odd that Windows 7 take up so much space on the disk drive!
Today, I desactivated Hibernation mode on Windows 7 (Never use the mode), which free up like 6 GB. And I lowered the virtual memory as well (8,2 Go, are you serious? I've got 8Go of RAM, so why would I need so much SWAP? Linux don't use my small 500MB of SWAP at all!).
But I mainly want to focus on the minimum disk space required for the installation of Windows 7 64-Bits, it takes 20GB minimum.
I think that's way too much, but why? Is there a logical reason?
XP uses 1,5 Go, which is really good. Ubuntu use 4.5/5 Go, and come with all the necessary softwares (LibreOffice, etc..). Why Windows 7 takes like 4 times the disk space of Ubuntu, and come with.. Nothing? XD
I find it huge to jump from 1.5 GB (Windows XP) to 20 GB (Seven) ! Why so much space?
I'm really curious about that.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
How much disk space does LAMP stack need?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 3, 2012
I have Xubuntu installed in Vbox on 8GB hard disk. I removed a few programes i don't need there (e.g. gimp, mail...).
I now find a PHP tool i would like to try to see how well it works and though i haven't found the exact specs it needs but it does need a webserver. and from the part of documentation i read (didn't have time yet to read it all) it seems it also needs a MySQL. So the easiest route seems to be to install LAMP (or is it AMP).
I checked the disk space after clearing old kernels and it says 4 GB disk free. the vbox mashcine has 512MB ram (hopefully that is enough). disk will probably get clogged up again (with new kernels) so it would likely leave about 2GB to work with. Is that enough? How much disk space (approximatelly) does LAMP stack need? should i somehow increase the virtual disk space?
easiest way to know how much disk space is left on partition
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 7, 2004
It is a very simple question, what is the linux command that tells me how much disk space is left on the partition?? or i have to install a certain partition manage to know? because it doesn't appear on cfdisk, and I find strange to have to install a external program to the kernel to know such a important thing
