Hi Nick,

I've attached two files with this kind of info. Being up at the cron
hours of the morning meant I got a better picture of what my system is
doing. Here's a short summary of what I saw in top:

beagleindexer used gobs of ram. 600M or so (I have 1G)

updatedb didn't use much ram, but while it was running kswapd kept on
frequenting the top 10 cpu hogs - it would stick around for 5 seconds
or so then disappear for no more than 10 seconds, then come back
again. This behaviour persisted during the run. updatedb ran third
(beagleindexer was first, then update-dlocatedb)

I'm going to do this again, this time under a CFS kernel & use Ingo's
sched_debug script to see what the scheduler is doing also.

Let me know if there's anything else you wish to see. The running
kernel at the time was 2.6.22.1-ck. There's no slabinfo since I'm
using slub instead (and I don't have slub debug enabled).

Cheers,
