Hi.
I am testing out my software on RedHat 9.0. My software accept
periodic data from an ethernet link, does some context sensitiv
interpretation on the data and additionally writes the data to th
database.

After the code runs for about 30 hours the system slows dow
dramatically.
I have collected iostat and vmstat outputs.....

Before system slowdown
iostat details is
Linux 2.4.20-8 (mmslin02) 09/17/05

can anyone interpret this data and let know the possible reasons fo
the system slowdown.
