For some reason mlocate is taking a long time when I run the updatedb command. Have a look!
[root@beta:~] #time updatedb real 19m48.729s user 0m0.400s sys 0m2.728s
It’s not a big volume by any means
[root@beta:~] #df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1 75G 9.1G 63G 13% /
So I’m wondering what could be causing this command to take so long.
I’m running CentOS 5.8 in a xen vm.
I was hoping I could get some advice that would help me troubleshoot this problem.
