Optimization

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Just installed Fedora core2 last night on a 1.2ghz system w 256M of RAM

 

Fresh install, had it format the hard drive.

 

Since my intention is to learn Fedora at a network engineering level, I chose to install every thing.

 

The boot up is a bit slower then I expected and launching programs takes a bit longer then expected as well.

 

I guess the first thing I need to do is to optimize the system

 

Looking for a "defrag" and a "services" and a "startup" and a "virtual memory" type area so I can get a better idea of whats running, how much resources it is using and how to turn certain things off. Where would that be and what are those items called in Linux terms?

 

Any suggestions on how to best optimize and tune a freshly installed system would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

first off you need to understand that defrag is not an option

 

also, check what services are running

 

try this

 

system-config-services

or

ntsysv

or

chkconfig

 

disable the ones you don't need (for example disable CUPS if you don't have a printer !

 

cheers

Thanks for the reply,

 

Are most management tasks taken care of through the command line?

 

Is there a noob type reference on line to the most common CL commands

and their switches?

Hi there,

 

I've recently installed fc2 on my home machine (2000+ w/512) and I had to edit my drive configuration.

 

 

vi /etc/sysconfig/harddisks

 

and uncomment the switches. This will greatly increase throughput to your drives. All the redhat9 boxes i have installed already had this stuff uncommented and were naturally fast. Not sure why fc2 has it remmed out...

 

 

da!!as
