High reads = low bogomips

  • I'm putting this here as I think it might be an interesting discussion. Looking at a server where periodically the Bogomips value drops through the floor. At the same time the OS reads smash through the ceiling. What sort of things might this be indicative of? This is a virtualised environment, Windows. Haven't got access to see what the config is just yet, but will add that when I know.

    You are (probably) just seeing the natural consequence of a busy system without enough resources to support both the "high reads" and bogoMIPs.

    On a smallish VM that wouldn't take much.

  • Makes sense Tom. Thanks. Need to get my access to the machine sorted so I can investigate in depth.
