Description Nick Elias 2003-02-13 00:49:38 UTC
Description of problem: I reboot my machine. A few minutes after I log in, the light on the CD-ROM drive lights about once per second (along with a quick interaction with the hard drive). Sometimes, the machine goes into continuous hard-drive swapping that lasts indefinitely. I check top and ps, and do not recognize any program that could be causing this problem. Is there a bug in a daemon, or should I turn a daemon off? Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:

magicdev checks the CD-ROM drive every 5-10 seconds - that may be what you're referring to. Other than that, no idea. If you're wanting a bug fixed, we'd need information on reproducing the problem.

The CD-ROM checking appears not to be a bug. OK. Unfortunately, I don't know what causes the hard-drive to begin swapping. I can hard-boot the machine, log in, and let it sit. Usually within a day or two the swapping will begin.

Usually systems start swapping because lots of memory is being used. Find out why the system is going to swap, what RAM is being used for, and any other info that might help.
