  1. Ok, so tell me only one thing. Is it affecting overall CPU performance? I mean, if i get lest say 50% i/o wait, then i have only the other half of processing power available and things might get done slower? Or CPU is waiting in the "meantime" and i don't have to worry about it? I am familiar with iozone. But i ran it again and i know whats the problem. It was FAT32 mounted with the sync option which kills performance with write transfers under 150KB/s, and iozone clearly confirms this. NTFS works great, it gives 18MB/s write on my crappy pendrive I am still learning. Sorry for bothering FAT32: kB reclen write rewrite read reread r.read r.write 10240 4 84 879 5343 5352 5330 45 10240 16 123 2994 13798 13956 14164 100 10240 512 144 4060 25636 25691 25663 1735 10240 1024 143 4079 25807 26111 26026 2084 10240 4096 145 3165 26528 26518 26474 4706 NTFS: kB reclen write rewrite read reread r.read r.write 10240 4 2090 2979 7826 7926 7903 2111 10240 16 2741 4255 15375 15475 15429 4302 10240 512 17749 17928 21361 21394 21592 18062 10240 1024 17580 17502 22156 22145 22140 18026 10240 4096 18335 18652 22544 22314 22537 18503
  2. I'm not sure but i think i also ran into this problem on PC+. I started new system with fresh 5.25 jessie 3.4.113 image. I wasn't able to connect trough SSH after first reboot. After few power-resets it started, and then again, one reboot and no connection. I am running webserver with it right now and i'm afraid to make a reboot, its running constantly from the very first start. 5.20 image with all later updates was starting good each time. Its the 5.25 image. /edit One more thing. Maybe its not really a bootloop but ethernet problem. I have power button set to run shutdown command. If i remember correctly, when it started without any connectivity, power button still worked, i got green led heartbeat after pressing it. So maybe it starts, but wont connect to the router. Its not the "new MAC each start bug", its was not visible in router clients list at all. No such problems before 5.25.
  3. Hello to all I am using Debian Jessie 5.25 on OPi PC+. And using rpi-monitor for monitoring stuff. I already made a fully working webserver and moved my wordpress to it, CPU usage around 10-20% when taking traffic, so it works like a charm. Today i decided i will use it to download a few big files with wget command. At first i was trying to be smart and save it directly to an ntfs pendrive mounted at usb0. Result - 40% I/O wait CPU usage and limited transfer (maybe 20-30 KB/s). Yes, my pendrive is bad, but hey, not so much. So i cancelled wget and tried to download the same file into /var/ into my SD card (used as system disk). Well, transfer was ok (200kB/s server limit), but i still had around 25-30% I/O wait CPU usage. CPU total is around 40% but it doesn't do much because its pretty cold, i think it just waists a lot of time to save file into SD (my SD is not top shelf but its pretty decent, its 32GB class 10). Simultaneously with this massive (200kB/s) wget download i tried other things: Tried to move (mv) 1GB file from system SD to usb0 pendrive, it transferred only 10MB in 2 minutes. Tried to move (WinSCP) 1GB file from system SD to usb0 pendrive, it timed out very quickly and threw connection error or something. Tried to download (WinSCP) 1GB file from system SD to my PC, it started at 4MB/s and dropped to maybe 500b/s after a minute (yes, bytes!). My average WinSCP - PC transfer is around 8MB/s in both directions... when wget is not downloading anything. And i even stopped apache service to make sure it wont interfere with SD access (sql and stuff) - user CPU usage dropped to 0% but I/O wait is still at 25%. My question is - is it normal? Is CPU so much busy while copying stuff? I don't thinks so, i was moving stuff between disks before and transfers was very decent. Or is it wget problem, maybe it tries to save data with very small chunks very often so storages can't keep up? I noticed it doesn't matter how fast download is, I/O wait is pretty the same for 500KB/s and 5MB/s. Yes i know i have eMMC which is much faster, but i don't want to move my system to it, not right now. Unless i can mount it as a normal storage and run wget again? Best, mrm noob /edit So i was wrong. Its not the wget problem, its accessing usb pendrive problem. Wget is still running, but I/O wait suddenly dropped to 0%. I checked and i have one "test" file missing from /var/ and it can't be found nowhere - file i was moving to usb0 but cancelled it by ctrl+c, but it seems that mv command was still working in the background moving my file, and at the end it deleted it from both places? I set another file to move from SD to usb0 with mv, it moves very slow, maybe 100-150KB/s and... uses 25% of I/O wait. Why? NTFS format or what? Tomorrow i will try with different pendrives.
