I'm trying to figure out what might be causing this:
11:34pm up 26 days, 1:12, 2 users, load average: 649.60, 682.05, 659.62
1481 processes: 1478 sleeping, 3 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
CPU0 states: 6.0% user, 31.0% system, 0.0% nice, 62.3% idle
CPU1 states: 4.4% user, 29.5% system, 0.0% nice, 65.1% idle
Mem: 1031504K av, 1021776K used, 9728K free, 0K shrd, 1196K buff
Swap: 2192792K av, 1261160K used, 931632K free 493520K cached
It doesn't seem to be nfs related - usually a nfs problem will result in a
hung or slow "df" which is not happening.
There is idle cpu available.. and about half the real ram is used in caching
so i don't think it's excessive paging.
