    slow linux


    Installed Oracle Enterprise Linux. Created users using GUI. Very slow to finish. Home directories has nothing unless you show hidden files. ls -al of user home directory takes forever - more than 1 minute. Any help appreciated.

    I'd start by looking for a bottleneck somewhere by using the various performance monitoring utilities.

    Start with vmstat to see if the CPU is always busy (no idle time), whether there's always high I/O activity, or a lot of swap activity.

    If there's no idle time then you can use top to see which processes are using all the CPU.

    There's also utilities like sar and iostat that can provide more detailed information.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Post your machine's specs here. Post the output of this too
    Code:
    df -h

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
