Please allow me to throw in two related "issues"
1. On a (backports polluted) LTSP (originally based on Sarge), today
I had a 100% CPU load (quadcore!) preventing additional users from
login (KDE login hang). Reason: famd.
Restarting the fam daemon solved the problem.
(I will upgrade that machine soon, anyway. For now I did a downgrade
on fam. )
2. Most heavy load is caused by Java and Flash applets (14 kids gaming
or watching youtube videos). In such moments, additional terminals
boot in slow motion (one line per second). I realised that upstream
traffic was permanent 100 MB/s which is 100%. Here, the bandwith gets
to its limit apparently.
