Run chr in virtual and try the new dude. I am keeping the old 4b3 running on windows server so far as the new dude still behaves somewhat unexpectedly for me. But today I am sure I will move it to virtual chr or to ccr for sure one day. Not in close future.
Well, we run the latest rc version pointed to by some other forum member. And in fact it works fine. Its only a bit slow at times and sometimes the graphs behave strange. Graphs on a main link had many unreal traffic peaks for days. But that suddenly stopped since a couple of hours. Graph is no pretty 'normal'.
We have it on the CCR already because it is actually a unit left over from a network reform. We'd imagined it should be powerful enough to run the Dude (only). If I look at the cpu its almost 'sleeping' (0-1% on average, sometimes a peak of 5-6%. Traffic to and from the only port that connects to our network is hardly ever more than 1Mb. Average is around 250kbps which is probably partially the winbox traffic I see....
So imho its hardly working. Why is it still that slow at times?
Could it have to do with the db file sitting on a usb stick?
And I've red some on fragmentation of the db file when alterations are made in Dude creating many empty spaces and even corrupt spaces on the HD.. Could that be a reason for the slow and at time weird behaviour?
If db file is getting fragmentated, how to defrag? I saw something on the Dude manual but that came to me as very complicated..
Would it be enough to export the DB file. Erase and format the usb stick and import the db file back?
(I presume best is to stop Dude running on the CCR during that?)
