I've been having a problem lately with my linux box. If i am using the machine
for more then three or four hours at one time, something starts running, i can
hear my hd going crazy, and the the systems lags do incredibly bad i had to re-
boot. at the time of the "system-slowdown", i was running a mud (as a bg process)
zgv, and three shell tty's... it was roughly three or four in the morning, and
i was connected to the net via pppd. can anyone tell me what the hell happened?
i have a vague idea that it was the mud performing routine mantainence, but the
slowdown was so goddamn ridiculous, i dimissed that thought.. i've watched it
maintain itself without those problems... any ideas?
