server performance..

Hi,

would like to know the server status from the following 'top' out put. Because, the application is giving a bad performance. would like to know whether the load is within the acceptable limit.

Murali...

The loads on the cpus are all very reasonable. Most likely you are disk bound.

Hi,

I thought load should always be less than 0.3 for the better performance. And one more thing is, CPU utilization is 99% for the processes ndmcmgr & cdstatm. wudn't this impact the response of the other processes...

I don't know where you got that .3 but it's way too low. You have double digit idle times on every cpu. You do have two processes that spend 98% of their time in the cpu. The kernel knows this and has given them a nasty priority. They only run when nothing else wants to. Since you have double digit idle times on each of your four cpu's, yes they run a lot.

HP has a product called glance or maybe it's glance-plus now. It looks like you can download a trial version here. Try it. It will tell where your bottlenecks are.

Performance of a server
