Time Event
OK, I've been fighting this long enough.

Can someone tell me how to make a tabular column that formats in paragraph mode? r/c/l treat text as one long line, and parbox mode requires a fixed width (using \textwidth or \hfill don't seem to work).
mod_perl compile
Ok, I'm trying to compile mod_perl on my RedHat 7.3 server, so I can let someone have access to hosting with it. Here's the problem I'm running into (gonna cut it so it doesn't clutter up friends pages with a bunch of compile options and stuff)...

"Top" Gun
Ok. So here's a question. In the output of "top", when you're looking at the CPU0 and CPU1 states (privided you have an SMP system) it lists statistics like this:

CPU states: 0.7% user, 0.0% system, 0.0% nice, 3.1% idle

My question is, what exactly is being measured under "system"? The man pages say that it's the percentage of CPU time in "system mode". What exactly does that mean?

The reason I ask is that I have a pair of servers with identical hardware and identical Redhat operating systems. There are a few software differences most notably different versions of PostGres and different versions of the in-house software. What I've noticed, however, is that one of them is nearly three times slower than the other when performing tasks. This same machine also shows about a three-fold increase in this "System" percentage statistic when measured over time. I figured that if I could find out exactly what is being measured there, I could start to trackdown what might be slowing this system down.

Current Mood: contemplative
FTP server?
I know we've had this conversation before - but I can't seem to find it. What is everyone's favorite FTP server? I've never really had the need for one up until now and consequently do not have any idea which to apt-get. Thanks.
