I guess its for concurrancy and handling multiple requests simultanously? 6th March 2007 at 2:45 am #9470 rpeddeParticipant @gurgel2 wrote: Can you lessen the nr of process (5?) that is spawned. I guess its for concurrancy and handling multiple requests simultanously? Not really. For the most part they dont’ use the resources you see in top or ps — they are really threads, so they have shared memory, etc. So it’s not as terrible as it looks. 6th March 2007 at 8:40 am #9471 fizzeParticipant Generally, in Unix OSes the threading behaves a lot different than in, say Windows NT. Whole threads and processes can be put to sleep, they eat up zero memory and/or CPU then. So also do not worry when the nslu2 is idle and it has no free memory. When memory is requested by an app it is delivered, otherwise the system uses it as cache. 😉 6th March 2007 at 8:26 pm #9472 gurgel2Participant Thanx guys.. then I know… FYI. I just wanna keep my system utilizing below the physical mem limit so there is no swapping when idle.
