Hi Ranchers,

Any one using Fedora 8 and is finding it slow?

I am using this since last 2 weeks and when I am using eclipse (J2EE version) i find my machine very slow. I am not able to figure it out if it is due to X11 or Eclipse ?

Can any one suggest me how to look for the problem? First I want to check if my X11 is slow or there is problem with eclipse.

Any suggestions are highly appreciated !

- Vivian

Try giving eclipse more memory. You can do this by modifying default values in eclipse.ini file.

If you find your system slow, verify with following
executing the following in $ prompt

Step 1:

ps auxwww | head

Find the top cpu consuming process and identify and kill the processes which are not requried

Step 2:
top

From the output verify the idle time of the cpu
some thing like 89.6%id, 0.0wa
more ideal time means no issues

Step 3:
Verify the swap space

Step 4:
Finally try setting up the command line parameter for eclipse
like
-vmargs -XX:MaxPermSize=1024m -Xms512m -Xmx1024m
that suits your system/memory

Hope this helps
