About system performance and daemons.

Sir after installing wheezy system I have disabled some of the daemons and services using bum(boot up manager). Now my system performance is slow and I am unable to browse Internet and when I open browser it is giving error messages.

Kindly suggest the required daemons need to be enabled for good system performance and for browsing the Internet.

Regards,
Rupesh.

Which daemons and services did you disable?

Asking for help without providing that information is sort of like asking a mechanic to fix your car after you've randomly disconnected several of its wires and components -- it's not a completely impossible task, but very few mechanics will want the challenge, and those who are willing to do it will charge you a fortune.

Wouldn't expect disabling daemons to just slow down the computer. Generally they will stop certain things from working at all. Such as the internet :) DHCP? sshd? avahid? nfsd? dnsmasq?

Can you suggest which are the most needed daemons for system performance I mean high throughput.

the high throughput daemon would be the obvious one - I always have it running

seriously though...

most services that are running have been started because you installed something that needs the service, so most should probably not be disabled

of course there usually is one or two you could stop but it wouldn't affect performance enough to matter anyway


the better approach to a minimal and slim system is to only install the things you really need
so do a minimal install and then only install the things you require, then everything running should be something you use and need



why not post what you have running and then ask for comments and opinions

Don't use BUM, use rcconf.

Is this the same system that has every single pakage in the debian repo's installed?

Turn back on all the ones you turned off, then either research what each one does and decide if you need it or not, or simply try them one at a time and test it.

Sir I am requesting the most common daemons and services needed for good system performance. When I open a browser and open web page I am getting error as proxy server is refusing connection but when I plug the wire to modem network manager is showing message as connection established so which daemon need to be enabled for internet browsing.

System performance is acceptable but need somewhat even better.

Daemons have nothing to do with system performance.

Proxy settings in your browser have nothing to do with daemons.

Re-enable everything you've disabled - done.

I can't tell you what to enable/disable as I have no idea what you had installed in the first place or what you disabled or left enabled. So if you also don't know what you disabled, I certainly don't know what you disabled - this probably means that you're facing reinstalling, which isn't such a problem when you have all 10 DVDs...

Why would you go in randomly disabling daemons that you don't know the first thing about...?

I think this is fun. Like the "Family Feud", but for troubleshooting. Op is the host,

OP: Name a service that can affect a computers internet connectivity
ME: wpa_supplicant?
OP: Show me...wpa_supplicant!
