ls -la / more: hangs when parsing directories or files remotely
Good day to everyone,
I have a problem that i have been trying to resolve for some time now.
I have couple linux servers setup that are running RHEL4 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4) as the OS and have found one common problem across all. Now the underlying systems are dell poweredges 2850,6850 servers and dell pc based systems. I find that whenever i connect remotely and try to do an 'ls' on a directory that contains a moderate number of files ( say > 5) it hangs.
Does any one knows why this happens?
Is it a bug or do i need to tweak some OS parameters?
Please, i would really appreciate some help.
