Hi all,

just wondering why my zlm servers are so slow to provide updates to themselves. Running "rug up -y -N" on a zlm secondary server that is registered to itself and has a few dozend patches to download and apply brings cpu usage up to 100% for about half an hour until I get something like:

Download failed: (https://duesseldorfzlm01.duesseldorf...zenworks-pkgmg t/repo/getBundleFile/063f70c5cb480ea76cdc8c5f0530cdf8/1/sles-9-i586/libexif-0.5. 12-118.10.i586.patch.rpm) The request timed out

Running the same command again will pick up where it left off and after about another half an hour I'll get the same error again, just with a different rpm to fail on download. Running top thru all this looks like the following most of the time:

Now why is ndsd taking up so much cpu time here? Any ideas?

thanks, Lothar

btw, this on a single CPU sles 9 with 1GB RAM (vmware esx 2.5 running on hp proliant hardware)
