System Load Spikes

I’m seeing load spikes on my server at 4 in the morning. Which is to be expected as thats when rsync is crontab’d to run.

However it’s taking upto an hour to drop down again? Or is this just the graph taking it’s time? 5 minute average…

think that’s just averaging to be fair.

you could always make a cron entry such as
0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20 4 * * * date >> /home/logfile.txt; /usr/bin/<command> >> /home/logfile.txt

where <command> is your choice of the following dependant on OS
sar 1 2
vmstat 1 2
or some other variant :slight_smile:

Right ok.

I’ll leave it as it is as I’m not really about when it’s rsync’ing it’s discs :smiley:
