i realize this isn't the correct list for this , so i won't ask (again )
, but i've looked into my server load further .. and have attached a top
output

i am almost out of free memory . i would expect this would be a priority
.. but will it make a difference in CPU usage ?

and my CPU usage is near 1oo% . .. this is due to 2 streamTranscoder runs
. .. for now , i want to do this -- (unless there's a better way to play
mp3 streams from ogg file , is ices 0.3 any better optimized for playlist
, i could simply use streamTranscoder on live runs ) .

if i am running an AMD 7oo Duron , how much of an upgrade would you think
is needed to handle this load ?

thanks for any suggestions ., a:/,

 -- [ i have two channels running, and have renamed the binaries with 1 or
2 appended so that i can track them through ps , ( i don't know how to
track actual PID's .. again, any suggestions here would be appreciated ) ]
