execution delay for listing files.
Whenever i try to execute ls with l as an option the system displays the output with significant delay.
However only ls works fine.
this happens only when i m in /usr/local/sbin where all my executable resides.
The workload on server is not more than 1.
What could be the reason .
# which ls
alias ls='ls --color=tty'
Here is the difference .
# lsb_release -a
