Re: Crash at hh:17:10 every day

I suspect the hh:17 thing is a red herring, caused by the fake-hwclock which saves the current time at 17 minutes past each hour - but you should look at what is in /etc/cron.hourly/ as those files are run at hh:17. The directory /etc/cron.hourly/ only has the file fake-hwclock and the code within ...

Crash at hh:17:10 every day

After purchasing a Raspberry Pi 2 and upgrading it with the latest software I've started to get these unusual crashes/freezes at hh:17:10 everyday forcing me to reboot it physically by taking out the power cable. The last 5 crashes has been at. 12:17:10 04:17:10 16:17:10 07:17:10 03:17.10 What's odd...

IRC Daemon

Hello everyone, I would like to setup an IRC daemon client on my Raspberry Pi which should be connected 24/7 to various freenode, quakenet rooms and so forth and then I would like to access it remotely on my other machines which are not powered on 24/7. Something similar to what I'm doing with trans...

Re: Where is the Bottleneck?

Actually I have Windows 8.1 Pro but the service doesn't exist there. Perhaps I should get the Enterprise edition as it exist there. Do you think NFS would be an improvement? If so, I'll re-install with Enterprise.

I see, so if I format it in to ext4 I wont be able to connect to the drive directly from Windows. But connecting to it through samba is fine. What about NFS then? Currently, samba uses about 40% cpu when I'm transferring files to the drive, and when doing some minor research I see that NFS is a lot ...

Re: Where is the Bottleneck?

Mine is NTFS-formatted, would ext4 be a noticeable improvement and is it compatible with Windows and Android? I usually access the raspberry pi device containing the NTFS hdd through win and android. It's also using Samba, perhaps NFS would be better?

Re: Where is the Bottleneck?

The hdd is powered with the power source I got when buying the drive, its output is 12V and 1.5A.

Copying a file using Rsync shows about avg: 3.06 MB/s writing from SD card to the external drive.
Writing from external drive to SD card is about avg: 6.95 MB/s

I also did some additional testing, and it seems that if I download a file online to the SD card I get about 7-8 MB/s, and if I download the very same file to the external harddrive it's about 1.6-1.8 MB/s.

Re: Where is the Bottleneck?

Sorry to bump an old thread but I'm both amazed and curious to how you can get such great speeds. I've got a 500/50 mbit connection, cat 6 ethernet cables and I reach speeds around 50 MB/s on my desktop but on my pi I barely reach download speeds around 2.2~ MB/s. I'm using a pretty much "blank" ras...

Re: using two Pis as one dual-core?

What exactly is a bramble/cluster of raspberry pis?
I understand it's parallel computing but how would you explain it in a simple manor?
If I were to connect my two pis, would I essentially have a 'faster' PI connected to 1 monitor?
Ex. double RAM/CPU?

Re: Who is in the 1GHz Club?

I set my Pi to the Turbo setting using a regular 5V, 700mA power supply (no overvolting) and it seems to work. No crashes or anything particular, but I'm suspecting that perhaps it's falling back to 700 MHz, when I do cat /proc/cpuinfo it shows BogoMIPS: 697.5. I assume that means it uses 700 MHz? P...

Re: minimize RAM usage ?

You can check your active processes with the command

Code: Select all

ps aux | less
See what kind of processes eats most of the memory and kill/uninstall the ones which is unnecessary for you.

Do I have to do it through the command line, if so how?
