    Forgive the intrusion.

    I realize this isn't the correct forum to pose this question, but there just seems to be no definitive google, msn, yahoo or otherwise any other positive return on our questions.

    I have a client that runs a RHEL3 server, and neither he nor I can find the proper channel urls for inclusion into his yum.conf.

    The redhat..... channels included in his default yum.conf result in major dependency errors. (seems all current RHEL3 channels via search engines result in channels with files timestamped 2004 or previous)

    Virtual Dedicated Server running RHEL3, mySQL 4.1.18, php 4.4.2 with all patches/updates that can be updated via all ART channels.

    php, mysql updated via ART.

    Running a yum update results in numerous errors we have yet to resolve that prohibits installation of other apps he needs.

    Thanks to all who can help.

    I don't think there are official yum channels for RHEL. You need a subscription to update from RHN (https://rhn.redhat.com/) and they only support the use of up2date.

    Thats correct, your only option for base/updates on RHEL3/4 is to use the packages from CentOS or one of the other clones.

    Anyone heard of any problems with the new Taroon update 7? After updating our packages on RHEL3 to update 7 with up2date all servers have jumped from an average load of 0.23 to 11 :eek: Any help would be greatly appreciated..

    HUH?

    Thanks ART.

    Virtual servers **** duck eggs for upgrades.

    Advised the client to have their host do the necessary patches.

    I was just wondering if anyone who also used RHEL3 who has just updated their servers with the new redhat update 7, if they had also seen a huge increase in thier server load? When I top I see that httpd is using most of the CPU about 10 or 12 instances of httpd run each at 20 -25% CPU. I rebuilt the httpd from source to test if that would help, it appears to have slightly but the loads have not yet come back to normal. I am only assuming that it may have something to do with the new kernel?

    Load is generally a factor of I/O. So if you made any kernel upgrades, then this could be related to bugs or other issues with disk I/O. Thats been a problem on CentOS4/4ES lately as well.

    To see what your disk performance is like, when the box is idle (I generally do this in single user mode): hdparm -t /dev/<devicename>, ex: hdparm -t /dev/hda

    Reasonable performance is around 30MB/sec, good performance will be 50MB/sec and above.

    Try that with no load (single user mode), and then under load for a comparison. Aside from that you might want to try using vmstat to see what the box is doing when its under a lot of load.
