Can someone explain the difference Server load & CPU load?
This may be a very simple question for some.
What is the difference between load on the server (Apache mainly) and CPU load.
I'm I even thinking about this in the right way?
In other words would it matter how much cpu/ram you're running if apache is maxed?
What is the one thing that really determines whether the server is fast or crawls?
I appreciate any enlightment you can give me on this subject.
Alot of times apache has very little cpu load but if it goes into swap file (uses all ram) the server will crawl.
Sometimes there is ram free but cpu load is really high.. that's usually not just apache but some combination of apache php/cgi and db server.
* Moved to Technical and Security Issues...
i was going to try an explain it, but better is this:
I guess it is just that general.
What I was wondering is if one thing can cause slow speeds regardless of all other factors. It seems like the answer is yes and no.
yeah probably the simplest failure would be when apache gets very busy and uses up all ram..
