The problem started a while ago. I would be using the NUC to write NR code on a machine (a machine: Any, including this one) and I would press
deploy and it would sit there, deploying.
Sometimes it would be quite a while and it was starting to annoy me, so I would - now and then if not needing to program in NR - load another browser and do what I needed and all would be sweet.
Yes, of course all would be sweet, as there are no NR tabs loaded.
To further test the water I opened a few NR Dashboards in the other browser as now and then I would need to check the status of things in the NR world.
Oh, I also don't edit any NR stuff on the remote machines as they are password locked and the password is only of FireFox. (FF)
Again there would be no big lags.
So when it became apparent that it was the NR Edit windows, I asked around about how to track what is going on in FF.
I was shown the whole new world of the task manager in FF and so I opened it up and keep it open at all times. Then if I want to see what is going on, I can look there.
To using top, atop, htop.
Yeah, I have been down that path too. Though mostly with just
All it showed me was something like
Web content and a huge number.
To me that isn't useful in finding out WHAT exactly it is.
Ah-ha! Something to do with the interweb.
Which then lead on to the FF task manager.
That screen shot I showed you was 89.xx. While watching it some times - not often - but it is up to THOUSANDS. Only for less than a second. But wow! It really spikes.
My reflexes aren't that good to actually catch them, and I don't really think getting a screen shot of it is really going to achieve anything useful.
So what ever it is: it is tricky.
These spikes can be on any of the 4 machines - this one included.
There are 3 RasPies on 24/7 and this machine when I am surfing the web.
The other 3 machines - as said - do very little. Though the main one is a bit higher loaded as it polls the others at regular intervals. I've upped it from 20 seconds to 30 seconds.
Doesn't really change things.
I may look more at
htop - I think that was recently installed on this machine. But if it is on another machine........
That is another problem I see.
It happens only now and then.
So to check all the other three machines, I would have to SSH into them and get
top (or equivalent) running and be monitoring it all the time.
Yeah, if I want to find the problem I need to do the work. I am just explaining what I have done and why.
It is not quite at the threshold of being/needing to be fixed. But it is getting there.
This is just to tell others of the problem so if they get it, they know they aren't alone.
Using FF's developer tools is WAY beyond my skill set. I am having enough troubles with NR and getting things done with it.
