No, I do have a minute or two before it goes unusable. As Robin
suggested, I wil go in and perform top as soon as I see any sign of
slow down. In any case, I will start to familiarize myslef with top.
I have absolutly no experience in shell scripting, but if I wanted to
write a script that would run top once every x seconds and write the
output to a log, which commands would I need? I'l go digging myself
and try to write it, but a hint as to what's available would be
helpful. I do have a little experience in php, so there is some hope.
