I installed elastix version 1.5 64bit 2 days ago. Now the CPU usage is at 89% at all times. I have a 36GB harddrive and 78% of it has been used. I dont know where it is using it. I only have 1 sip trunk and 5 extensions which probably and if make about 3 calls at the same time. The machine that is running elastix is a:

IBM x336 server with 1 Xeon 64bit Proc. running at 3.6Ghz with 2 GB of Ram.

Ram usage is at 76% no swap usage.

What could be causing this?

thanks in advance.

from bash

For CPU and memory usage use
top
for disk usage, start at root:
cd /
then
du -h --max-depth=1

chase down the large directories.

Hi dicko,
I'm just a newbie with high CPU and RAM usage. Do I enter your command "du -h --max depth=1" in Elastix\PBX\Tools\Asterisk-Cli\Command ? Not sure what you mean re the cd / as I've loaded the boot cd into the pc already and Elastix is now on the c drive.

The diagnostics you are looking for will need to be run from a bash shell, either on the local console or by ssh, in a bash shell cd means change directory and / means the root of the file system, a basic understanding of linux is now necessary for you you to proceed down this path, sorry.

this post was just for large directory structures

For greedy processes use:

top

My guess is you have a rogue process running in Asterisk:

tail -f /var/log/asterisk/full

is I'm sure spitting out the same error many times a second, sending your cpu usage through the roof and eating up your hard disk space. you need to track down and kill that process.
