High CPU When browsing files (too slow to use)

webserver_issue

#1

Hi, I installed OC9 on an older Ubuntu server (older hardware that is). My primary use for it is as a photo storage server. However, when trying to view the photo directories via the OC apps or web interface it is painfully slow. I can see on the server that the apache2 processes all go up to 95+% CPU whenever I do anything on the system. I'm trying to figure out how to take the next step in debugging the performance. Is it a config issue or is it just that I'm on undersized hardware?

Some more details:
Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5200 @ 2.50GHz
2GB Ram
$ sudo free -m
total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 2005 542 215 123 1247 1160
Swap: 2036 500 1536

I'm using MySQL with OC9.

Any tips on how to troubleshoot this is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

most likely caused by the thumbnail generation of your photos / pictures. This is known to be slow and causing performance issues. There is no solution yet except to wait until all thumbnails are generated.


#3

Is there a way to force the generation of all the thumbnails (both the list and gallery sizes) before accessing the directory?

Hi,

if you follow the posted link above you see that this is not possible yet.
